Apparently, Thomas Letsch, who is currently working for the Dutch honorary division Vitesse Arnhem, is to become the new head coach of Bundesliga club VfL Bochum. This is reported by bild.de.
The 54-year-old would succeed Thomas Reis, who had to leave after a false start to the season. Under interim coach Heiko Butscher, the Westphalians scored their first point of the season by beating 1. FC Köln 1-1 on Sunday.
However, VfL would have to pay a transfer fee for Letsch. The football teacher had worked for Erzgebirge Aue, Austria Vienna and in various positions at RB Salzburg. Born in Esslingen, he has been a trainer at Vitesse since July 1, 2020 and still has a contract until the end of the season. Visited last summer SPOX and Goal Letsch in Arnhem for an interview.
