FC Augsburg has probably found what they are looking for in a coach. Weinzierl’s successor is said to be Enrico Maassen from BVB’s U23.

Borussia Dortmund’s U23 coach Enrico Maassen is apparently the favorite to succeed Markus Weinzierl at FC Augsburg. This is reported by the Bild newspaper. According to this, the Fuggerstadt residents are already on the home stretch when it comes to filling the vacant post. The 38-year-old represents the preferred candidate.

However, other clubs should also compete for Maassen’s services. The Bundesliga relegated SpVgg Greuther Fürth (Marc Schneider) and Arminia Bielefeld (Uli Forte) would also have shown interest, but have now filled the positions.

Will BVB let Maaßen go?

It is still unclear whether Borussia Dortmund will let the talented coach go. There are “requests for Enno,” said U23 team manager Ingo Preuss recently at Ruhr Nachrichten, but “an agreement was reached on further cooperation, and that will remain the case go next season.”

Maassen took office in Dortmund in July 2020 and promptly made it from the regional league to the 3rd division. There, the second team ended up in ninth place last season.
