Bundesliga’s longest-serving manager SC Freiburg’s Christian Streich has signed a contract extension with the club. The 56-year-old took over the club in December 2011 following the dismissal of Marcus Sorg and has not looked back. Freiburg is traditionally known to hide contract lengths but announced that they have decided to continue their relationship. He is best known for bringing back European football to the club after a decade without it. Freiburg is currently 6th on the Bundesliga table, level on points with 5th-place RB Leipzig. Perfect spot for European qualification.
He has extended his deal for an undisclosed period and will continue at the Bundesliga club along with coaches Patrick Baier, Lars Vossler, Florian Bruns, Andreas Kronenberg, and Daniel Wolf. “We’re absolutely delighted that we will continue to work together with Christian Streich as head coach,” said board member Jochen Saier on the club’s website. “Christian lives this club and carries the SC philosophy in his heart.”
