Hütter agrees Gladbach move
Eintracht Frankfurt manager Adi Hütter has agreed to become the Borussia Mönchengladbach next season on a three-year deal and succeed Dortmund-bound Marco Rose.
Hütter has led Eintracht to fourth this season and looks nailed on to secure Champions League football. It is therefore somewhat of a surprise that he is forgoing that to join Gladbach who are in eighth position in the Bundesliga.
Gladbach have been looking for a coach to replace Marco Rose, since his deal to join Borussia Dortmund next season was announced in February.
Max Eberl, sporting director of Borussia Mönchengladbach, said this in a statement:

“We’re very happy about Adi Hütter’s acceptance.
“For our team and our club, he’s the best coach for the challenges and goals that lie ahead of us from the summer.”
Hütter, 51, rose to prominence when he led Red Bull Salzburg to a double in his only season there. He then joined Young Boys and three years into his reign, helped them win the league title for the first time since 1986.
At Frankfurt, he reached the Europa League semi-finals in his first season, before a ninth-placed finish last year. This season has been fantastic and a 4-3 win against Wolfsburg on Saturday has the Eagles in pole position for a top-four spot.
Eintracht are now just a point behind Wolfsburg in the table and after beating BVB last week, they hold a commanding seven-point lead over Edin Terzic’s men.
