Union Berlin puts a big exclamation mark: successful coach Urs Fischer has extended his contract with the Iron. With him, his assistant Markus Hoffmann has also continued to tie himself to Union.
Since Fischer's arrival in the summer of 2018, Union has undergone phenomenal development, which culminated last season with fifth place in the Bundesliga and the associated qualification for the Europa League. But that doesn't have to be the end of the story, after all, the Irons are leading the current table in the German upper house - still undefeated! - on.
The fact that Fischer extended his contract, which would have expired in the summer of 2023, can be seen as a coup for the club.
Fischer added: "What we have been able to experience together in recent years is unbelievable and hard to describe. As I have often emphasized, I feel very comfortable at Union. The daily work together with the team and the entire team, the conditions that the association provides, the human interaction - all of these are very important factors for our success over the past four years. I think we can still achieve a lot on the common path and I look forward to continuing to be part of the development of the to be a member."
Union did not provide any information on the new term of the contract.
