Two new faces for Van Gaal's staff

Postby FCBayernNews » Tue May 25, 2010 6:15 pm

Louis van Gaal will take charge of two new faces in his coaching team when the stars return to the Säbener Strasse for pre-season training on 21 June. Van Gaal's fellow-countrymen Frans Hoek and Marcel Bout are to join Bayern for the 2010-11 campaign, the club announced on Tuesday.

Both are fully familiar with the 58-year-old boss. Goalkeeping coach Hoek (pictured, left) worked for Van Gaal at Amsterdam giants Ajax, Catalan outfit Barcelona and the Netherlands national team. "Bayern is one of the best clubs in the world," Hoek commented ahead of taking up his new role in Munich. The 53-year-old's last job was as Poland national goalkeeping coach.

Bout (pictured, right) and Van Gaal know each other from a spell together at Alkmaar. The 48-year-old will become match analyst at Bayern, a position filled by Egon Coordes last term. Coordes will now return to his former duties in the scouting section. Bout most recently coached Dutch second division outfit SC Telstar, where Van Gaal spent the 1977-8 season as a player.

Farewell to Junghans and Norman

Current goalkeeping coach Walter Junghans is leaving the senior set-up. FC Bayern officially thanked Junghans for his meticulous training efforts with Jörg Butt, Michael Rensing and Thomas Kraft. After three years working with the senior squad, Junghans will supervise goalkeeping coaching for the Bayern youth and reserve teams.

Fitness coach Darcy Norman is leaving the double winners at his own request. The Canadian spent two years with FCB, but is returning to a previous role working with professional athletes in the USA. Norman bade farewell to the massed fans from the Town Hall balcony after Sunday's end-of-season parade through Munich.
