TSG 1899 Hoffenheim next manager after Sebastian Hoeneß
Who is the TSG 1899 Hoffenheim manager?
Sebastian Hoeneß was born 12 May 1982, making him 38 years of age. Hoeneß played as an attacking midfielder throughout his career, 1st playing for Hertha BSC II in 2000. In his 6 years at Hertha Berlins amateur team, he made 101 appearances, scoring 14 times. Sebastian Hoeneß’s career was a strange one and only lasted 10 years. He only played 3 games of senior football, and that was for Hoffenheim. He spent the rest of his short-lived career playing for Hertha BSC II again, as he rejoined just one season after he left.
Hoeneß most definitely seems to be a man more interested in the managerial/coaching side of the game as he quit playing football at the age of 28 to take charge of Hertha Zehlendorf U19. This stint lasted 2 years before catching the eye of Rb Leipzig. They offered him the opportunity to manage their under 17’s side, which Hoeneß could possibly not turn down. Rb Leipzig were a team formed just a few years earlier and were on the rise winning promotion after promotion with lots of investment into the club year after year, meaning the potential of where this job could go to had no limit. Just 2 years into the job, he was promoted to the u19’s team. In these 2 years, Leipzig had been promoted 2 times and now had their 1st ever season in the Bundesliga where they remarkably finished in 2nd place. As this Leipzig side lit up the spotlight even more, the rest of the squad and coaches got some recognition, including Hoeneß. Because of this, in 2017, he was appointed as the manager of Bayern Munich’s U’19s and 2 years later replaced Holger Seitz as the teams reserve manager. He spent just one season with the reserve side, but in this season, he broke records. He helped Bayern Munich’s reserves win the 3. Liga for the 1st time in their history and made them the 1st ever reserve team to win the 3. Liga. He steered the club from 15th place at Christmas to 1st with a points haul of 43 from a possible 57. This won him the manager of the year award and then shortly after receiving this he was offered the chance of a lifetime.
On the 27th of July 2020, Bayern Munich agreed to let go of Hoeneß in order for him to take over TSG 1899 Hoffenheim. This is going to be his 1st managerial job in senior football and is going to be some task for him. At Bayern Munich’s reserves, he predominantly used a narrow variation of a 4-3-1-2 with 3 central midfielders, a no.10 and 2 strikers and his second preferred formation was a 3-5-2. This suggests that Hoeneß is keen on crowding and creating overloads in central areas of the pitch, which allowed his full-backs to bomb-on up the pitch. Joining Hoffenheim has lots of benefits for Hoeneß as they already had several exceptionally good central midfielders including the likes of Sebastian Rudy, Christoph Baumgartner and Florian Grillitsch.
