Laura Vetterlein is on her way back to VfL Wolfsburg Women. The former player, who between 2011 and 2015 won the Champions League, the Bundesliga and the DFB Cup twice each with the Green-and-Whites, will be an assistant coach next season, replacing Kim Kulig, who will take up the head coach post at FC Basel. Vetterlein, who currently still plays for FC Zürich, already has her A-licence as a coach.
“Always my intention”
“I’m so looking forward to coming back to VfL Wolfsburg in a new role and adding to the coaching staff,” a delighted Vetterlein said. “It was always my intention to work as a coach after my playing career and to carry on living out my passion for football in this particular way – and it’s even better to be getting the chance to do just that with VfL.”
“Expertise and people skills”
“When it came to filling a spot that had become vacant in our coaching staff, Laura was absolutely the ideal candidate,” said Ralf Kellermann, director of women’s football at VfL Wolfsburg. “We’re even more delighted about the fact that she’s also coming back to VfL Wolfsburg, following in the footsteps of her sister Alisa. Laura has got everything she needs to have a successful second career as a coach, with her expertise and her people skills.“
