Málaga put faith in Schuster

A former Liga-winning coach with Real Madrid CF, Bernd Schuster has been handed a five-year contract at Málaga CF where he will be presented in his new role next week.

Málaga CF have appointed Bernd Schuster as their new coach, with the former West Germany midfielder agreeing terms on a five-year deal at La Rosaleda.

The 53-year-old – who enjoyed a successful playing career in Spain with FC Barcelona, Real Madrid CF and Club Atlético de Madrid – returns to the dugout having last coached at Turkish side Beşiktaş JK, resigning in March 2011. He will officially take charge of Málaga next week.

This is a ninth managerial appointment for Schuster – a UEFA European Championship winner in 1980 – who has occupied the helm of SC Fortuna Köln, 1. FC Köln, Xerez CD, FC Shakhtar Donetsk, Levante UD, Getafe CF and Real Madrid. He claimed the 2007/08 Liga title with the Merengues. Schuster arrives at Málaga as successor to Manuel Pellegrini, who last month announced his decision to step down from last season's UEFA Champions League quarter-finalists.
