Borussia Mönchengladbach have named Gerardo Seoane as their new head coach following the departure of Daniel Farke at the end of the 2022/23 season.
Seoane, 44, has put pen to paper on a three-year contract for what will be his first coaching role since departing Bundesliga rivals Bayer Leverkusen, where he held the reins from July 2021 until October 2022.
"Gerardo has worked successfully in various posts over the past few years," said Gladbach's sporting director Roland Virkus. "He's a young coach but also an experienced one and he fits in with our football philosophy. We're pleased to have him with us at Borussia Mönchengladbach."
After a playing career spent largely in his native Switzerland, Seoane cut his teeth as a coach at Luzern before taking over Young Boys Bern in 2018, winning three consecutive Swiss Super League titles as well as the domestic cup in 2019/20.
At Leverkusen he guided Die Werkself to third place in his maiden Bundesliga campaign in 2021/22 as well as the round of 16 in the UEFA Europa League, but he was relieved of his duties after Matchday 8 in the recently ended season following five defeats, two draws and just one win.
Seoane's predecessor, Farke, was dismissed last week after one season in charge.
