Hoffenheim extended with coach Markus Gidsol

In this Bundesliga season there have already been some coach changes and some more will follow at the end of the season.

The most surprising news this week was the farewell of Jürgen Klopp, who will cancel his contract with BVB early this summer. Tuchel will be considered as a potential successor. Hamburg has already hired Bruno Labbadia as a new coach for the coming season and VfB Stuttgart is associated with Alexander Zorniger. Hoffenheim is satisfied with Markus Gidsol and has therefore prematurely extended the 45-year-old’s contract.

Markus Gidsol until 2018 in Hoffenheim

The TSG Hoffenheim has played its way into the first Bundesliga in recent years. One can owe this among other things to the successful coach Markus Gidsol, with whom the sport executive committee is obviously very content. Actually the contract of Gidsol would have expired only in 2016, but one would like to cooperate in any case two further years. The contract of the head coach was extended prematurely until 2018. Gidsol has been in office since 2013 and has been able to achieve greater success with his team since then. In the first year, he saved the team from relegation and since then the team has continued to climb. This year even the chance to participate in the Europa League is still open.

Therefore, there are no reasons for leaving Gidsol. Instead the TSG was visibly inspired, after the coach put his signature under the premature contract extension. “We are pleased much about the agreement come off , were quoted Peter Rettig on the association homepage. The chairman of the TSG management made thereby the second important step in the future planning. At the beginning of the year, Alexander Rosen, Direct for Professional Football, was presented with a new contract and signed it. In Hoffenheim one strives for the stability of some other federal league oath comrades.

Gidsol himself wants to go high with Hoffenheim, because “we have the ambitious goal of establishing TSG Hoffenheim as a permanent fixture in one of the strongest leagues in the world, of continuously developing the team further and of being able to play a noticeable, attractive role with our way of playing.”

It will still be difficult against Bavaria

At the weekend, Hoffenheim will welcome FC Bayern Munich, who lost to FC Porto in the Champions League during the week. With a gap of only two points to sixth place, a win (5.50 at bet365) against Bayern could mean a leap to the European Cup places. It is well known, however, that after a defeat the Munichers are made so hot that this jump will most likely not succeed. It is not for nothing that the Munich team is the clear favourite of the game with 1.60. Bayern has never lost against Hoffenheim – in the 13 games Hoffenheim could only get four draws (4.20).

The bet365 odds are correct at the time of publication and may change.
