Foot­ball -Werder Bre­men puts faith in Alexan­der Nouri as head coach

Malta Independent - - SPORTS -

Werder Bre­men pro­moted Alexan­der Nouri from in­terim coach to head coach for the rest of the sea­son. The Bun­desliga club said that Nouri, the side’s for­mer un­der-23 coach who took over from the sacked Vik­tor Skrip­nik, was in­formed of the man­age­ment board’s de­ci­sion yes­ter­day morn­ing. Skrip­nik had over­seen four straight de­feats, in­clud­ing the first-round exit in the Ger­man Cup to third-divi­sion side Sport­fre­unde Lotte, and his sack­ing ended a 20-year as­so­ci­a­tion with the club, which he joined as a player in 1996. Nouri led Bre­men to its first win, against Wolfs­burg, and claimed a point Satur­day against Darm­stadt for four points from his three games. Sport­ing di­rec­tor Frank Bau­mann says, “We de­cided that he should get the chance to con­tinue the work he’s be­gun.”
