Going into the second division is inevitable for Bundesliga relegated teams. After the departure of coach Stefan Leitl in the direction of Hanover, the search for a successor in Fuggerstadt quickly came to an end. A new coach has been found.

Schneider follows Leitl: Marc Schneider (41) becomes the new coach of SpVgg Fürth. The association reports this on its website. The commitment of the Swiss, who last worked for the Belgian second division club Waasland-Beveren and was released there in February, comes as a surprise. The former Swiss junior international was not on any of the lists of candidates.

Achievements in Switzerland: Before moving to Belgium, Schneider was a coach in his hometown of Thun for three years. As a player, he celebrated his greatest successes at FC Zurich (Swiss champions 2006 and 2007), but also played for Young Boys Bern and FC Thun.

Contract until 2024: Schneider is to receive a two-year contract with the clover leaves until 2024. “The philosophy and approach that Marc presented to us in the talks coincides with what we imagine for the game association,” says Rachid Azzouzi, Managing Director Sport in Fürth.
