Hitzfeld: Premiership our role model

Hitzfeld: Premiership our role model


Ottmar Hitzfeld has revealed he intends to use the style football played in the Premiership as his example for his Bayern Munich side as they look to work themselves back into the race for the Bungesliga title.


Hitzfeld led Bayern to Champions League glory in 2001 during a six year reign at the club, and stepped back into the job at the end of last month after his successor Felix Magath was sacked for a poor run of results in the league.

"We have to have big ambitions," Hitzfeld told Sport Bild. "The Premier League must be our example. A quicker tempo, more movement on the pitch, and more application - that's what we want."

Exercises in training have also revealed Hitzfeld's desire to play with a higher defensive line, in order for the team to function more as a unit.

"We need to stay more compact," Hitzfeld explained. "That way, our passing game and our interplay will improve automatically."

Hitzfeld's assistant Michael Henke spent time in London observing Arsenal, and insisted: "We can certainly follow Arsenal's example regarding quick passing and interplay."

The General seems to be doing some work here.....Never heard any such things when Felix was the coach... I am glad that Hitzfeld is looking to change things at Bayern...

Though I'm no Arsenal fan, I do think Bayern could be more effective with their players playing that style of football. I wonder what the players think of basing their new style of play on that of one of their rivals, especially one they've always had success against. :wink:

I also like Arsenal, especially Henry. As for Magath's assistant, I don't think so but I could be wrong. I'd be surprised if he did since neither he nor Magath seemed like the type of guys who would get off their behinds.

he's aware of the problems and doesn't shy off communicating with the fans. still wants to evolve and bring changes to the style of managing a team, and his tactics. he's the greatest. simple as that.

Bayern's Hitzfeld reveals health scare

Postby MUTU » Wed Apr 25, 2007 2:37 pm

Bayern Munich coach Ottmar Hitzfeld revealed on Wednesday that the health problems which forced him to retire in 2004 have returned.

The 58-year-old was only persuaded back to Bayern's helm in February after Felix Magath was sacked, but the stress of coaching the German giants is taking its toll on his health once more and he has already lost two kilos.

Hitzfeld has agreed to coach Bayern next season, but is planning a major recruitment drive over the summer with his side set to miss out on a Champions League place next season for the first time in 11 years.

"I must make sure I don't lose too much weight and I have to make sure I find my time for switching off and relaxing," Hitzfeld told German sports magazine Sport-Bild in the wake of his side's 2-0 defeat at VfB Stuttgart last weekend.

"It's too easy to not be able to see the wood for the trees when the pressure of the job starts building up."

Although the stomach complaint which affected him in 2004 is showing signs of returning, the 2001 World Coach of the Year is managing his condition with relaxation.

"After spending the whole day dealing with football, I make sure I switch off after 8pm and do something completely different, read or just relax," he said.

But Hitzfeld stressed he is enjoying his time back with Bayern.

"I am proud to be Bayern coach. It is a lot of fun, even if it doesn't always seem so at the time."

Hitzfeld Considering Swiss National Job

Postby FC Bajern » Sat Oct 13, 2007 6:53 pm

It is being reported that Bayern trainer Ottmar Hitzfeld has a second option in mind should he leave the Bundesliga side- the Swiss national job.

“I’ve thought about it, and have to come to a conclusion. There are two options for me: Bayern Munich or the Swiss national team” the 58 year old Swiss tabloid ‘Blick’.

Hitzfeld’s readiness to succeed Kobi Kuhn has been received positively by the Swiss Football Federation. “I’m personally delighted that an experienced coach like Ottmar Hitzfeld would show interest in the Swiss national team” admitted FA President Ralph Zloczower.

Ernst Lämmli, a delegate with the FA explained, “It’s fantastic if Ottmar has such an idea.”

A decision upon the successor to Kobi Kuhn will be taken in February or March next year after the Euro 2008 Championships in Austria/ Switzerland. Kuhn has decided not to extend his current contract.

Alongside Hitzfeld, Kuhns’s assistant Michel Pont, and FC Basel trainer Christian Gross are expected to be in the frame.

Hitzfeld returned to Munich in February of this year succeeding Felix Magath at the Allianz Arena for his second spell in charge at the club.

‘The General’ has already coached in Switzerland with spells at Grasshopper Zürich, FC Aarau and SC Zug. He also appeared for FC Basel, FC Lugano and FC Lucern as a player.

Hitzfeld owns a second home in the ski resort of Engelberg, and is current building a new home in his birthplace of Lörrach on the Swiss border.

Bayern look to retain Hitzfeld

Bayern look to retain Hitzfeld

Bayern Munich manager Uli Hoeness said on Saturday he hopes coach Ottmar Hitzfeld will sign a contract extension over the winter break to stay at the German giants for another season.

Hitzfeld, who has won the Champions League with both Bayern and Borussia Dortmund, has expressed interest in coaching the Swiss national team after next summer's Euro 2008 tournament with his contract in Munich set to expire in June.

But Bayern, who went six points clear at the top of the Bundesliga thanks to Saturday's 2-1 win at VfL Bochum, are keen to extend the 58-year-old's contract with his unbeaten side picking up their eighth win of the season.

'I am hoping we can announce Hitzfeld will stay with us after January's winter break,' Hoeness told German satellite channel Premiere.

Hitzfeld has always said he wants to talk to Bayern's management before he considers coaching any other side, but is interested in taking over from Swiss coach Jakob Kuhn after next summer's European Championships.
