GISDOL EXTENDS HAMBURG CONTRACT
Hamburg have announced that head coach Markus Gisdol has signed a new contract that will keep him at the club until 2019.
The 47-year-old took charge in September but only agreed a deal to stay at Volksparkstadion until the end of the season.
Gisdol and his backroom staff have now finalised renewals that will remain valid even if the club are relegated to the 2.Bundesliga this term.
“Hamburger SV have extended the contract with head coach Markus Gisdol, which expired this summer, for a further two years until June 30, 2019,” a club statement confirmed.
“The contract applies to both the Bundesliga and the 2. Bundesliga.
“The contracts with coaches Frank Frohling and Frank Kaspari, goalkeeper coach Stefan Wachter and fitness coach Daniel Mussig were also extended to the same period.”
Hamburg’s 0-0 draw with Eintrach Frankfurt last week left them in the relegation play-off position, two points behind Wolfsburg. They face Cologne on April 1.
