Actually, herbert hummer makes no bones about it, the SC stettfeld was once again on the lookout for a player coach. "We have had very good experience with this variant", explains the head of department of the schweinfurt A-class team (4./29) towards our partner portal anpfiff.Info.
But after marco wagner’s departure was decided, the market simply did not have the right offer. "I have had many conversations", says hummer. One or two interested parties finally decided against the SC and for co-applicants. "But there were also some candidates who would have liked to join us, but decided to take a break first, or who no longer want to work as a player-coach, or who have already signed on as players with their previous club."
Dieter burger takes over at SCS
That’s why the plan to put an experienced man at the helm of the young team, which has always been among the top teams in the A-class schweinfurt 5 in recent years and is still in fourth place this round with only three points behind the top, and who will be coached by auben, has matured more and more. "We have now found a very good solution", says hummer and looks forward. The new one is not unknown in stettfeld. His name: dieter burger. The 59-year-old is the father of tobias burger, who coached the SC from 2013 to 2015 and also remained closely connected to the club during his time as coach of the district league team FSV krum. "Of course tobias burger helped us with the search", says the head of department.
Father-son team works
His father was quite an obvious choice. "He was always close at hand and always supported his son, even back then, and even took over a unit once when he couldn’t.", says hummer. A model that also worked for tobias burger’s other stations, at TSV dankenfeld, at the U17 of FC eintracht bamberg and most recently at FSV krum. Dieter burger was not only a close confidant for his son, but also always active as a kind of co- or substitute coach.
Promotion 2005 with dankenfeld
In the first row stood the experienced coach, who made his b-certificate in the middle of the 90’s, but not for more than ten years. In the 2004/2005 season, he took over as coach at TSV dankenfeld and led the team to the top of the district league at the first attempt. Later, dieter burger, a self-employed master plasterer by trade, was also active as a player and coach at bamberg A-class team DJK zettmannsdorf.
"I am looking forward to the challenge", says the experienced head of the investigation. "SC stettfeld has seen a lot of changes in the past few years. The team is committed and also the environment fits perfectly." he also knows exactly what to expect from the time he spent with his filius at the A-class club.
In the future, dad will be able to count on his son’s help, whether it’s in training or on the pitch, just as he did as a father. Tobias burger, who left FSV krum in the fall for an honorary position on the coaching staff of the bavarian football association, will "store" his player passport at SC stettfeld starting in the new season.
Paul simon also returns
"When I’m not leading training courses in oberhaching or working as a mountain guide for the german armed forces, I like to play and want to help the team, says the 35-year-old and smiles. "Provided my father puts me up." last time he had his son in the C-youth at TSV dankenfeld under his wing.
In addition to his own young talent, the future stettfeld coach can rely on another returnee. Paul simon will then play for the sports club again. The 27-year-old keeper had moved to spvgg trunstadt in the summer of 2016 and has established himself as the number 1 in the district league and district class there. In his database are so far 63 parts noted, including one or the other as a field player.
In stettfeld, he is to succeed tobias deuber between the posts, who is moving back to the bamberg district in the summer after many years with the SCS. He moves to the FC viereth. "It was very important for me that we could win paul simon for us again", says hummer. For the head of the department, it is by no means a foregone conclusion that the new coach and the new keeper will play for an A-class team. "We are in a good position and have had good preparation. Maybe something is still possible", he says and still has his sights set on the championship title or the relegation place.
