Nürnberg appoint Meyer
FC Nürnberg have appointed veteran coach Hans Meyer to replace Wolfgang Wolf.
The 63-year-old has agreed a contract at the Frankenstadion until the end of the season and will be officially presented on Wednesday.
Meyer, who led Borussia Mönchengladbach back into the top flight in 2001, has been trusted with the job of guiding the rock-bottom Bavarian outfit out of relegation trouble after a terrible start to the season.
FCN sport director Martin Bader has turned to Meyer after talks with both Lothar Matthaus and Peter Neururer broke down over the past week.
Bader was part of the Hertha Berlin management team when Meyer saved the capital city club from a similar predicament in the spring of 2004.
