Appointment of Peter Bosz as successor to Thomas Tuchel

The German cup winners Borussia Dortmund have appointed Dutchman Peter Bosz as the successor to Thomas Tuchel.

Bosz leaves Amsterdam side ajax after guiding the club to a Europa league final.

The 53-year-old, who led Ajax to the Europa League final in his sole season in charge of the Amsterdam, has signed a two year deal to succeed Thomas Tuchel, who left the club last week following a rift with club bosses.

Bosz guided an exciting young Ajax side to their first European final in 21 years, where they were beaten by Manchester United, but missed out on the Eredivisie title by a point to Feyenoord and ended the season without silverwar

The former Holland midfielder’s only previous coaching job outside his home country was a brief stint in charge of Israeli side Maccabi Tel Aviv before he took over at Ajax.

Dortmund finished third in the Bundesliga last term to qualify for the Champions League, and also won the DFB-Pokal, but Bosz will have his work cut out to challenge the dominance of Bayern Munich.
