Bernd Stange

German coach Bernd Stange has already coached teams such as Hertha Berlin and VfB Leipzig back home in Germany, Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk in the Ukraine, Perth Glory in Australia, the Iraq national team and, most recently, Apollon Limassol in Cyprus. Now the 59-year-old has taken over the reins with Belarus, beating other applicants to the post because he also speaks fluent Russian. Rumours that Stange is trying to outdo compatriot Rudi Gutendorf’s record of holding 54 different coaching positions during his career are, however, not true. Globetrotter Gutendorf’s statistics even won him a mention in the Guinness Book of Records.
