Manager

He began his managerial career with SV Lippstadt, spending six years with the non-league side, taking them from the sixth tier to the fourth tier of German football.

The 44-year-old then spent two seasons in charge of Borussia Dortmund’s reserve side before being appointed as Norwich manager ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.

He led the club to a 14th place finish in his first season in charge before storming to the Championship title in 2018/19, guiding Norwich back into the Premier League for the first time in three seasons.
