SV Werder Bremen have announced that Alexander Nouri will remain first team coach until the end of the season.
The former coach of Werder’s Under-23 side had been looking after first-team affairs on an interim basis following the departure of Viktor Skripnik. Now, after helping the team pick up four points from their last two games, Nouri will remain in charge for the rest of the 2016/17 campaign.
"Alexander Nouri has shown in recent weeks that he has the respect of the team and has done an excellent job," said Werder CEO Frank Baumann. "We decided he should get the opportunity to continue the work he has started."
