Bernd Schuster set to coach Wolfsburg



Former Real Madrid helmsman Bernd Schuster is set to take over the coaching job at ailing Bundesliga club VfL Wolfsburg, news reports said on Thursday.

Kicker sports magazine and the Bild daily said that Schuster will sign a contract until 2015 to take the place of Lorenz-Guenther Koestner, who has acted as caretaker since the dismissal of Felix Magath in October.

Wolfsburg were not immediately available for a statement.

The 2009 champions Wolfsburg lie one place above the danger zone in 15th place. They won three of the first four games under Koestner, but have only one more victory in the following five until the winter break. However, they advanced into the cup quarterfinals on Wednesday, 2-1 over Bayer Leverkusen.

Schuster has not coached in the Bundesliga before, but was in charge of Cologne in the second division 1998-1999. He has coached in Ukraine, Spain and Turkey, leading Real to the Spanish league title in 2008.

His last engagement, at Besiktas Istanbul, ended in March 2011.

The former Real Madrid, Barcelona, Cologne and Leverkusen player won the Euro 1980 title for West Germany, with new Wolfsburg sports director Klaus Allofs also part of that team.
