Fabian Wohlgemuth succeeds Sven Mislintat as sports director

After the separation from Sven Mislintat, VfB Stuttgart has found a new sporting director. As the Swabians announced on Saturday, Fabian Wohlgemuth will take over the post.

The 43-year-old comes from SC Paderborn and has a contract with VfB until June 30, 2025.

“With the new appointment to the position of sports director, we want to give both a new impetus and a sign of continuity on our way. Fabian Wohlgemuth fits our profile perfectly. He recently proved in Paderborn that he can build a valuable squad even with manageable means put together, who plays attacking, passionate football,” said Stuttgart’s CEO Alexander Wehrle.

Wohlgemuth described VfB as a “lively club with a great fan culture, an exciting team and unbelievable potential”. At the same time, it is clear “that the sporting and economic tasks at VfB will challenge our team spirit. I believe that things work particularly well when they are born in a team and are also worked on together.”

VfB parted ways with Mislintat on Wednesday. Born in Berlin, Wohlgemuth worked as a trainer and scout in the youth team at Hamburger SV and headed the youth academy at VfL Wolfsburg for seven years. After a stint as sporting director at Holstein Kiel, Wohlgemuth has held this position at SC Paderborn since May 2020.
