Feldhoff excited by Bremen appointment

‘Young & Moses haven’t played for a while’ – Conte

Newly appointed Werder Bremen assistant coach Markus Feldhoff says he is looking forward to a 'new, appealing challenge' in his career.
The 42-year-old will begin his duties with the Bundesliga outfit on Wednesday, with head coach Alexander Nouri quoted by the club's website as saying he believes their relationship will be a fruitful one.
"Markus was my ideal candidate for this position. We played together at Uerdingen and Osnabrück and in the years following we remained always in regular contact.
"We have similar ideas which we would like to get across to the players as a coaching team and realise our philosophies on the pitch. Therefore, I’m sure that he’ll be a great addition to our coaching team," said Nouri.
Feldhoff, who left his role as assistant coach at third division side SC Paderborn at short notice to join Bremen, says it was an easy decision for him to make.
"I didn't have to think about it long when I found out about the interest in me. Werder are one of the most well-known clubs in Germany and are a new, appealing challenge in my career," he explained.
Feldhoff has considerable experience as a Bundesliga player, having spent time at the likes of Bayer 04 Leverkusen, Borussia Mönchengladbach and VfL Wolfsburg.
It's for this reason that Sporting director Frank Baumann feels he will be able to make a significant impact.
"Markus Feldhoff was a Bundesliga player himself and was on the bench for years at FC Energie Cottbus in the second division. We’re convinced that his experiences will be positive for the team," said Baumann.
