BERN, Switzerland (AP) — Former United States international David Wagner was hired Thursday to coach Swiss champion Young Boys.
Young Boys said the length of Wagner’s contract will be revealed at a news conference on Monday.
Wagner replaces Gerardo Seoane, who was hired by Bayer Leverkusen. He will take the four-time defending Swiss title winner into the Champions League second qualifying round, needing to advance through three rounds to reach the group stage.
“David has already worked in top leagues and stands for attractive and dynamic football,” Young Boys sporting director Christoph Spycher said in a statement.
