SV Werder Bremen have completed their search for a new assistant. Following the departure of Danijel Zenkovic to Club Brugge, the vacant position in Ole Werner’s coaching staff will be filled by Hannes Drews.

“We’ve spoken to Hannes twice before in the past and are happy to get him on board third time round. We’ve secured an absolute specialist for the position in Hannes, who has already had experience in the 2. Bundesliga as both a head coach and an assistant. He knows this league very well and will be alongside Patrick Kohlmann as a second assistant coach,” explained Frank Baumann, sporting director at SV Werder.

The 39-year-old, who most recently worked as assistant coach at Hamburger SV, and was head coach of their U23s for a season, was head coach of second division side Erzgebirge Aue for the 2017/18 season. Before that role, Drews worked in the youth setup at Holstein Kiel.

“Of course, we know Hannes from Kiel and know how he works. Alongside his normal duties, Hannes will also look after the young players and be the man to link the first team and the academy. With that being said, he will still be fully integrated with the first team in his day-to-day work,” said head coach Ole Werner.

Hannes Drews will take to the training pitch for the first time in Friday morning’s session.
