Dutchman Mark Van Bommel will lead Wolfsburg next season, where he will take over from Austrian Olver Glasner who will take over for Eintracht Frankfurt.
This was announced on Wednesday by the German club that was looking for a new coach since Glasner announced his decision to leave.
“We have been dealing intensively with Mark Van Bommel and our discussions with him confirmed that he is someone who fits our philosophy,” Wolfsburg sporting director Jörg Schmädke said.
“He is an internationally recognized coach who knows what awaits him in the Bundesliga,” he added.
Van Bommel knows the Bundesliga from his time as a player since he defended the colors of Bayern between 2006 and 2011
“The ideas of those in charge at the club are the same as my visions and I can completely identify with the path that Wolfsburg has taken,” Van Bommel said.
“Being able to work as a coach in the Bundesliga, where I played for so long, is a great honor for me,” he added.
Wolfsburg qualified for the Champions League by taking fourth place last season. EFE (hn)
