Alongside Oliver Glasner there will be further changes to the Wolves’ coaching staff for next season.
New assistants: Thomas Sageder, Michael Berktold and Michael Angerschmid.
Oliver Glasner will take over the post of VfL Wolfsburg head coach ahead of the 2019/20 season. The 44-year-old Austrian is bringing assistant Michael Angerschmid with him from current club LASK, along with fitness coach Michael Berktold. Thomas Sageder, who was head coach of Austrian second-tier side FC Blau-Weiß Linz until March of this year, will fill the second assistant position. The trio replace Bruno Labbadia’s assistants Eddy Sözer and Olaf Janßen as well as fitness coach Günter Kern, who are all leaving the Wolves.
Angerschmid, 45, has been working closely with Glasner as assistant at LASK for the past four years. Prior to that, he had two years’ experience as head coach at SV Ried, for whom he made 277 appearances as a player. Glasner also knows Sageder from their time together at Ried, where he was on the coaching staff during the 2014/15 season. Most recently, the 45-year-old was in charge of FC Blau-Weiß Linz. Completing the new trio is 38-year-old fitness coach Berktold, who also worked under Glasner at LASK
