The new one is probably an old acquaintance: Freiburg has Julian Schuster, someone who is fresh in the Head Coach career-but knows the club well.

According to conflicting media reports, Julian Schuster is to take over the vacant coaching position at SC Freiburg from summer. The announcement of the personnel should therefore take place on Thursday or Friday of this week. This date at least coincides with information from SWR Sport. On request, however, the SC Freiburg did not want to give a concrete opinion.

Nothing has been signed yet, so we can hear from the club. Nevertheless, this colported prank succession by Julian Schuster is more than plausible. The surprise was great when Christian pranked his End as head coach of SC Freiburg officially announced. Now his legacy is certain: Julian Schuster could take over the Freiburg Bundesliga team from summer. Who is the alleged new Coach?

Julian Schuster played 219 games for Freiburg. He was a midfield strategist and captain under Christian Streich for many years. In total, he wore the jersey of the Freiburgers in 185 Bundesliga and 34 second league matches. He has all the prerequisites to arrive very quickly as head coach at SC. At 38, Schuster is still one of the young coaches – but at the same time he brings as much experience to the club as hardly anyone else. It would be the smooth transition after the era.

The former captain of SC Freiburg at the helm

His football career started comparatively unspectacular: he started with his youth club FV Löchgau in the Bezirksliga. He played strongly at the amateur club, so he moved into the focus of VfB Stuttgart. In the Winter of 2005, the Swabians piloted the Talent to VfB. After a few games for the Stuttgart Reserve team, he gave up his contract on 27 September.He made his Bundesliga debut against Bayer Leverkusen on 23 October.

However, Schuster could not prevail at VfB in the long run and then moved to the then Second Division from Freiburg. There he quickly had a regular place and led the team as an important pillar to promotion to the Bundesliga in 2009. In April 2011, he scored the goal of the month in the match against Hoffenheim. Christian Streich always found only laudatory words about Schuster:

That Julian Schuster would become a coach was clear early on. Immediately after ending his professional career at SC in 2018 at the age of 33, Schuster began his training as a professional coach. He closed it last February. Since 2018, he has been working as a so – called” Liaison coach ” to ensure that young Freiburg players make it into the professional squad-as an interface between the first team and the youth teams.

As a strike representative, he has been on the coaching bench of Breisgauer several times together with Patrick Baier and Lars Vossler, including in October 2022 at the Europa League match against Lens and in February 2023 against VfB from Stuttgart.

Julian Schuster is not afraid of responsibility

Since 2023, Schuster has had the Pro License as a DFB coach and thus the right to the head coaching position at a Football Bundesliga Player. In the club and especially among the young players in the professional team, he enjoys high esteem.

By the way, Schuster is not afraid that the task as head coach could be a number too big for him. Of course, he had” the inclination to train a professional team at some point”, as Schuster said at a training course of the DFB in February. He has not yet stated specific career goals. Of the great opportunity to train His Heart Club Freiburg, he must have dreamed at least once.

The typical path of the SC Freiburg

Hiring Schuster as head coach would follow the typical Freiburg path: cult Coach Streich also started in the club’s youth ranks before being promoted to the pros. The SC still attaches great importance to the connection between the youth and the professional sector. Perhaps Julian Schuster could usher in a new era of pranks: the Schuster era.
