Bayern league club DJK Ammerthal has filled the vacant coaching position with ex-professional Jürgen Schmid, who just a few weeks ago was the focus of a player revolt at league competitor ASV Neumarkt.
New start in the Bayernliga: After the turbulence at ASV Neumarkt, Jürgen Schmid will train DJK Ammerthal from the summer.
About a month after Michael Hutzer’s departure, which became known – he will take over at ATSV Erlangen – DJK Ammerthal presented a new coach: Jürgen Schmid will be in charge of the Upper Palatinate from summer.
The 40-year-old ex-professional, who stormed a total of 95 times for SSV Jahn Regensburg and SV Sandhausen in the 3rd division (ten goals), made the headlines in mid-February when a considerable part of the team at league rivals ASV Neumarkt was dismissed wanted to force it with the help of a player revolt and was successful with it.
At DJK Ammerthal, they are unimpressed and are completely convinced of the new man. Sports director Tobias Rösl said to the regional portal “Onetz”: “I think we have been able to hire a young, dynamic coach in Jürgen, who follows a clear line through his footballing expertise as a player and most recently in Neumarkt as a coach.”
