Jens Keller follows Alexander Nouri, who has been dismissed, as coach of FC Ingolstadt, the second division soccer team. The Schanzers confirmed that on Friday. Against the Hamburger SV on Saturday (13 o’clock in the LIVETICKER), interim coach Roberto Pätzold will bear the responsibility on the bench.
Keller, the former coach of VfB Stuttgart, Schalke 04 and most recently Union Berlin (until December 2017), will receive a contract until the end of the season from the last of the table. The football teacher will take over his new job on Sunday. Nouri had been dismissed from office on Monday after only eight games.
“After the joint discussions, we came to the conclusion that our team under Jens Keller is back on track and will score successfully,” said Harald Gärtner, Managing Director Sport und Kommunikation.
One is glad “to have clarity now, so everyone knows how things will continue after the game. Now our focus is exclusively on the home game against Hamburger SV on Saturday,” said Gärtner. Then we will focus all our attention on the new start under the direction of Keller, which will be officially presented on Sunday.
