Robert Klaus (38) will be the new coach of SK Rapid Vienna. This is what Krone reports. Final discussions are currently underway to finalize contract details. A principled consensus has already been reached. The former coach of Nürnberg (2020-2022) has been without a club for a year. He went through the Red Bull Coaching Academy in Leipzig and was assistant coach to Ralf Rangnick and Julian Nagelsmann. He belongs to the next generation of coaches, is an analyst and wants to play possession-oriented football.
Rapid II coach Stefan Kulovits is currently leading the team’s training. The new head coach could take a seat on the bench in the Bundesliga game against BW Linz on 26 November.
