Andre Schubert has been named Borussia Mönchengladbach head coach on a permanent basis.

The 44-year-old, who is unbeaten in seven Bundesliga matches since replacing Lucien Favre in an interim capacity on 21 September, has signed a two-year contract valid through June 2017.

'Fantastic results'

“In the last eight weeks, Andre has done a really convincing job and has achieved fantastic results with the team,” explained Gladbach sporting director Max Eberl. “We’ve had detailed talks in the last few days, we know the team’s in good hands with him and have, therefore, decided to give him a contract.”

For Schubert, a former SC Paderborn 07, FC St. Pauli and Gladbach Under-23s head coach, the deal represents his first full-time position in Germany’s top flight.
