IANS logoIANS 10-06-2017

"Julian and Alexander have decisively contributed to the great sportive development of Hoffenheim with their competence, patience, farsightedness and tenacity," Hoffenheim CEO Peter Goerlich said on Friday.

The 29-year-old head coach took the reins at Hoffenheim in February 2016 when they were trapped in the Bundesliga drop zone. However, Nagelsmann was able to lead the club out of the bottom and into the UEFA Champions League group stage, reports Xinhua news agency.

"I feel great pleasure and anticipation for the upcoming challenges. We feel well and have the best conditions for a successful work," Naglesmann said.

Hoffenheim completed the season in the fourth place of the Bundesliga standings and ensured a ticket for the UEFA Champions League for the first time in the club's history.
