Wimmer as an interim solution at VfB Stuttgart "maybe in several games"

VfB Stuttgart started preparations for the basement summit against VfL Bochum on Tuesday without Pellegrino Matarazzo. The Swabian head coach had to leave on Monday. Until a successor is found, Michael Wimmer will look after the team as interim coach. Possibly even "in several games".

Sports director Sven Mislintat said in a club statement on Tuesday: "It is an option for Michael Wimmer to look after the team in this capacity on Saturday against Bochum, maybe in several games. But that's not the goal."

Mislintat is currently working on finding a suitable successor. The goal is to "quickly find the most accurate and best solution. It has to fit and ideally, like last time, over a longer period of time," said Mislintat and continued: "There has to be a coach who can develop the players in their personality and makes the team more capable of winning. In addition, we have an identity in the game with the ball that we want to continue."

According to Sky, Zsolt Löw is currently one of the top candidates. The Hungarian was Thomas Tuchel's assistant coach for many years, but now wants to prove himself as head coach. According to the pay TV broadcaster, the talks began on Monday. However, the picture says that the 43-year-old is rather skeptical. However, Seoane, Bosz and Tedesco, who were also traded, had canceled.

Until a new head coach is found, Mislintat trusts Matarazzo's assistant Wimmer, who has been assistant coach at VfB since 2019.
