SC Freiburg is going into another season with head coach Christian Streich.
The sports club has once again extended the contract with the 56-year-old, the Bundesliga club announced on Tuesday.
As usual, the people from Breisgau did not give any details about the term of the contract or other content.
Streich, who has always extended for a year, has been coaching the Breisgau team for more than ten years, making him the longest-serving coach in the Bundesliga.
In addition, the contracts with the co-trainers Patrick Baier, Lars Voßler and Florian Bruns as well as the athletic trainer Daniel Wolf were extended.
"In the past few years we have built a stable foundation together, which is based on trust in one another and on meticulous work on content," explained SC sports director Jochen Saier.
"We are convinced that we can continue to work successfully on the development of our team in this constellation."
Michael Müller is new to the professional coaching team.
The 32-year-old will succeed Andreas Kronenberg, who will finally switch to the national team as goalkeeper coach Hansi Flick after the season.
Müller has been coaching the goalkeepers at the Freiburg soccer school and the U23s since 2014.
"With Michael Müller we have found a solution that enables a smooth transition," said Saier.
Müller has been actively involved in "the Freiburg goalkeeping philosophy for years".
Streich came to SC Freiburg as a youth coach in 1995 and took over as a professional on December 29, 2011.
Under his unlucky predecessor Marcus Sorg, SC had only won three games in the first half of the season and was in last place.
Under Streich it went up steeply - at the end of the season Freiburg held the class.
At this point it was already clear what outstanding skills Streich had as a coach.
Today, many experts regard him as the best coach in the Bundesliga.
With the sports club, he was even allowed to descend in 2015 without a recall even remotely being an issue.
Of course, Freiburg rose again immediately.
The butcher's son, who has professional experience and a teaching degree, not only shaped an era in sport.
At first he was seen as a cranky hothead on the sidelines.
In the meantime, Streich has risen to become a moral authority and the good conscience of the league.
When he denounces grievances in sport, politics and society, shares his views, tells anecdotes or just philosophizes about football, he always comes across as authentic.
His employer also appreciates that.
Currently, his team, sixth in the table, still has a good chance of making it into the Champions League for the first time.
In the DFB Cup, SC meets second division club Hamburger SV in the semifinals on April 19 (8:45 p.m./in the FAZ live ticker for the DFB Cup and on Sky).
Getting into the final would also be a premiere for the people of Breisgau.
Streich still describes winning the German championship with the A-Juniors in 2008 as his greatest success - but that could change this year.Keywords:
