Dremmler lands top Bayern youth job

Former Germany star Wolfgang Dremmler has been appointed head of youth development at Bayern Munich.


Midfielder Dremmler, who played in the 3-1 1982 World Cup final loss to Italy as part of his 27-cap haul, succeeds Hans-Jorg Butt in the position.

“I find this challenge very appealing, no question about it," said Dremmler. "My heart has always been in youth development work, and now I’m devoting this to my new position with FC Bayern. I’m supported by a very good team, and we’ll try and complete the tasks assigned to us by the club in the best possible way.“

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge expressed his contentment. “With Wolfgang Dremmler, we’re very pleased to have found a convincing and also internal solution for the position of head of the youth department.

“Wolfgang played for FC Bayern, and was a successful international. He returned to the Säbener Strasse in 1995 and set up the FC Bayern junior team, after which he spent 17 years responsible for the club’s scouting, both in the junior and senior areas. Now, with all his experience, he’s coming back to the FC Bayern elite youth academy as its head. We’re extremely pleased with this decision.“
