For the time being, there is clarity about the coaching question at VfB Stuttgart. On Saturday evening, VfB sporting director Sven Mislintat confirmed that interim coach Michael Wimmer could continue with the Swabians until the winter break.
Despite the 0:5 defeat against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday, Mislintat sees a positive effect on the Stuttgarters after the change of coach. "He found the right trigger points in the team," Mislintat told Sky (via ZVW).
Wimmer will therefore sit in at least four more Bundesliga games on the Stuttgart coaching bench as head coach. The 42-year-old, who previously only had experience as a head coach in the youth field, made a successful debut last week in the 4-1 win against Bochum in the Bundesliga and in the 6-0 in the DFB Cup against Bielefeld, which is why Mislintat's confidence is no surprise.
