Adi Hutter announced as the new Borussia Monchengladbach head coach

Borussia Monchengladbach have announced that current Eintracht Frankfurt head coach Adi Hutter will take charge of the team from 2021/22.

The 51-year-old, who has been at Frankfurt since 2018 when he took over from Bayern-bound Niko Kovac, has signed a three-year contract at Gladbach, keeping him at the club until 2024.

Hutter will take over from Marco Rose, who is leaving the club at the end of the season to join Borussia Dortmund.

Gladbach are currently eighth in the Bundesliga, and look highly likely to miss out on Champions League football this season, something that Hutter’s current Frankfurt side look set to achieve, with the side sitting fourth in the table.

Hutter’s task at Gladbach will be to regain a spot in Europe’s elite competition, something that sporting director Max Eberl is confident of.

“We are very happy about Adi Hütter’s acceptance,” Max Eberl told Gladbach’s official website.

“For our team and our club, he is the best coach for the challenges and goals that lie ahead of us from the summer.”

Hutter’s record at Frankfurt

Now into his third season at Frankfurt, Hutter has taken charge of 135 games for the club, winning 65, drawing 31 and losing 39, with a win rate of 48.2%.

That win ratio is actually better than Rose’s at Gladbach, with the current coach at the Borussia-Park possessing a 46.3% win rate at the club.

Under his tenure, Frankfurt have finished seventh in the Bundesliga, in 2018/19, ninth in 2019/20 and look set to finish in the top four this time around.

Having progressed from Rheindor Altach, Grodig, Red Bull Salzburg, Young Boys, Eintracht Frankfurt and now to Gladbach, Hutter is one of the most exciting managers in world football, and with his Frankfurt side scoring the second most goals in the Bundesliga this term, expect goals to fly in at Gladbach.
