NUREMBERG, Germany (AP) — Nuremberg has appointed Dutchman Gertjan Verbeek as coach after a two-week search for a successor to the sacked Michael Wiesinger.
The Bundesliga club has called a news conference on Tuesday to present the 51-year-old Verbeek. Contract details were not immediately known.
Nuremberg sports director Martin Bader told public broadcaster Bayerischen Rundfunk late Monday that Verbeek "is in a position to help us in the short term."
Nuremberg is in the Bundesliga's relegation zone, one of two sides yet to win in nine games this season, while the club was also knocked out in the first round of the German Cup by second-division side Sandhausen.
Wiesinger and his assistant Armin Reutershahn were fired after a 5-0 home defeat to Hamburger SV.
