5 coach candidates at VfB: Who fits best in Stuttgart?

After dismissal is before hiring: VfB Stuttgart has been looking for a new coach since Pellegrino Matarazzo was released. There isn't a concrete lead yet, but there are already several names that are being discussed internally.

Many VfB supporters are sad and disappointed that Pellegrino Matarazzo had to pack his things. Even if the starting position as seventeenth in the table is anything but rosy and the decision is therefore quite understandable after they literally saved themselves from relegation in the last minute of the previous season, they feel a lot of gratitude for his work.

But the club environment cannot deal with the emotions for too long. The wheel keeps turning, which is why a successor should be presented as soon as possible.

Apparently, there is no concrete candidate yet. So far, there hasn't been any talk of a very hot lead. But according to the picture, several names have already been spoken of in Stuttgart.

Adi Hütter, Sebastian Hoeneß, Domenico Tedesco, Gerardo Seoane and Peter Bosz. These five trainers are being discussed internally these days. All were already active in the Bundesliga, some even into the current season. There hasn't been a big surprise so far, even if Bosz, who has now been released from Olympique Lyon, is most likely to fall into this category.

The recognizable pattern, with a slight exception at Tedesco: VfB want to continue to rely on a courageous and offensive-driven style of play. What Matarazzo has implemented in recent years should be continued. That's what the names stand for, sometimes more and sometimes less.

One thing is clear: The newcomer on the sidelines must achieve a trend reversal in the results. Stuttgart failed too often because of the small number of their own goals and less because of the defensive. With only nine goals scored, they share the second weakest offensive after VfL Bochum (eight goals). The 14 goals conceded, on the other hand, are currently roughly within the league average.

Bosz is probably the most unlikely candidate. Although he likes to let his teams storm, sometimes a supposedly missing defense concept becomes his undoing. He will probably be the most expensive candidate for this. Hoeneß has not yet established himself in such a way that he could automatically be regarded as the potential savior.

While Tedesco is probably the least suitable for the preferred play style and should not be a serious option according to Sky, Seoane seems to be too freshly fired to get back in immediately. Therefore, Hütter looks like a good and likely candidate. He wouldn't exactly be cheap in terms of salary either, but he could be the most convincing for the VfB leadership.
