Berlin, Nov 13 (IANS) Borussia Monchengladbach’s caretaker Andre Schubert has been named as permanent head coach, the German football club confirmed on its official homepage on Friday.
After a long back-and-forth, Schubert has put pen to paper on a new deal that keeps him with the “Foals” until June 2017, reports Xinhua.
“Andre did a very convincing job in the past eight weeks and achieved excellent results with the team. We held extensive talks in the last days. We know that our team is in good hands with him and have therefore decided to give him a contract as head coach,” Monchengladbach’s sporting director Max Eberl said on Friday.
Monchengladbach’s former Under-23 coach took the reins on September 21 after head coach Lucien Favre stepped down following six straight defeats into the season.
The 44-year-old coach was actually appointed as an interim solution, as the club wanted to search calmly for a new coach.
However, the club reconsidered their quest for a new coach as Schubert staged convincing performances at the sideline following six consecutive wins and one draw in the Bundesliga.
Monchengladbach sit currently on the sixth place and encounter Hannover at the 13th round in the Bundesliga on November 21.
