Hannover parts ways with head coach Slomka


Hannover 96 v Standard Liege - UEFA Europa League Round of 16


Just halfway through the 2013-2014 Bundesliga campaign, Hannover 96 has decided it’s time for a head coaching change.

The club announced on Friday that manager Mirko Slomka had agreed to mutually terminate his contract, ending his three and a half year period as the club’s head coach. Hannover has struggled so far this season, sitting in 13th place with five wins in 17 games overall. The club has not yet named a replacement.

During his time as head coach, Slomka lead Hannover to two UEFA Europa League berths and in the 2011/2012 season, the team advanced to the Europa League quarterfinal round. Slomka also handed U.S. Men’s National Team right back Steve Cherundolo the captain’s armband back when he took over in 2010.

Slomka is the fourth manager in the Bundesliga to lose his job this season.


What do you think of this news? Who do you think should take Slomka’s place as Hannover manager? How does this impact Cherundolo’s future?
