Ex-national player Sandro Wagner switches to the coaching profession. The 33-year-old joins SpVgg Unterhaching – but not as a coach for the professionals.
Former national soccer player Sandro Wagner started his coaching career with the former Bundesliga club SpVgg Unterhaching as a youth. According to SID information, the 33-year-old will take over the club’s U19 team from summer, which is currently number one in the A-Junior Bayern League. The Bild newspaper first reported about Wagner’s new job.
The former striker ended his professional career after a last stint at Tianjin Teda in China last year. Since then he has been working as an expert at the DAZN streaming service and is doing his A license as a trainer. He should receive this in the next few weeks. Wagner has also been working as a forward coach in the DFB youth division since autumn.
The former Bundesliga professional (including Bayern Munich and 1899 Hoffenheim) lives with his family in Unterhaching. He is supposed to sign with the Munich suburb club for two years.
