Board announce Hyypia Replacement
The Bayer Leverkusen board have put former manager Sascha Lewandowski back in charge of the club following the sacking of Sami Hyypia. The former liverpool and Leverkusen player was sacked due to a poor season at the helm of the club in terms of domestic competitions. His replacement, Lewandowski was for a short time a joint head coach with Hyypia at the start of his reign but stepped down to take charge of youth teams leaving Hyypia as the sole head coach.
Lewandowski who has never had a professional playing career has managed only two teams, VFL Bochum and obviously Leverkusen. Lewandowski has been given a 1 year rolling contract to prove himself that he has what it takes to lead the club to success. With the season only two months away, It has been rumoured that Lewandowski has plans to alter the team to suit his playing style and philosophies.
Many believe that the club may see some key players shown the door, freeing up funds to bring in fresh faces which most fans say is necessary for the club to be able to progress and become a real threat in the Budesliga once again. The club have not enjoyed silverware at the club for several years now and it is hoped that Lewandowski will be able to bring trophies to the club.
From all the fans at the club we would like to welcome you Sascha and will be behind you through the good times and the bad. Immer und ewig unterstützen wir LEVERKUSEN!!!
