Former Gladbach coach Hecking takes over at Hamburg SV
Dieter Hecking, who coached Borussia Moenchengladbach to fifth place in the Bundesliga this past campaign, will take over at Hamburg SV as they look to launch another bid for promotion next season, the second division club said on Wednesday.
Hamburg imploded towards the end of the season to spectacularly miss out on what had looked like a certain return to the top-flight after their first season ever in the second division.
Hecking spent two and a half years at Gladbach and has also coached VfL Wolfsburg and Nuremberg in the Bundesliga, among others.
