Former German international Torsten Frings has been appointed head coach of ailing Darmstadt. With 400 Bundesliga matches under his belt as a player, this is the first step in his managerial career.
The new head coach of Bundesliga cellar dwellars Darmstadt believes he can save the team from relegation. However, his contract is valid for the second division should he fail to keep them up.
Former Germany midfielder Torsten Frings is to take over as coach at Bundesliga club Darmstadt. The news comes a day after Holger Stanislawski, thought to be their primary target, turned down an offer from the Lillies.
Torsten Frings was not a happy man after Darmstadt's heavy defeat to Cologne. But the head coach was more frustrated about all the talk surrounding one of his players.
Kevin Grosskreutz, a member of Germany's 2014 World Cup-winning team, has agreed to join the Bundesliga's bottom club Darmstadt in the summer. This comes just weeks after he said he wanted to take a break from the game.
