VfB Stuttgart and Michael Wimmer have parted ways by mutual consent. The 42-year-old’s contract has been terminated.
Michael Wimmer and VfB Stuttgart have agreed to go their separate ways with immediate effect. Wimmer took charge of the first team on an interim basis in October 2022, overseeing six Bundesliga matches and one DFB Cup tie.
Alexander Wehrle said, “Michael Wimmer did a very good job and won the hugely important home matches with the team in the autumn. We’re very grateful to him for his work and his association with VfB in the last three and a half years, and would’ve gladly kept him at the club due to his professional and personal qualities. At the same time, it’s absolutely understandable if he now wants to look for a head coach position elsewhere. We wish him success and good luck in that.”
Michael Wimmer said, “I’ve enjoyed working for VfB very much, first as assistant coach and in recent weeks as interim coach of the first team. The time has now come for me to take the next step and take on a new challenge. It’s been an eventful and valuable few years at VfB, which have left me feeling ready to work as a head coach on a long-term basis. I thank the VfB management for the trust they placed in me and for the opportunity to develop as a coach here. I wish VfB and their great fans all the best for the future.”
