Armin Reutershahn will stay on as Borussia Dortmund head coach for at least another season after agreeing to a two-year contract extension with the club.

Borussia Dortmund brought in Armin Reutershahn as an assistant coach in January following Peter Hermann’s decision to step down for personal reasons. The 63 year old joined the Black and Yellows on a contract until the end of the recently concluded season. But the club have now revealed that Reutershahn’s contract has been extended by another two years.

Reutershahn made a big impact after joining Borussia Dortmund in January, and helped spark a turnaround in fortunes for the club.

After a disappointing first half of the season, BVB bounced back and came ever so close to winning the Bundesliga title. Reutershahn earned plenty of praise from Edin Terzic and the BVB players, especially for his work on set-piece situations.

Armin Reutershahn’s decision to stay on for two more seasons comes as a big boost for Borussia Dortmund. The highly regarded co-trainer has worked with the likes of Julian Nagelsmann, Adi Hütter, and Friedhelm Funkel in the past, and has plenty of experience under his belt. He will join head coach Edin Terzic and co-trainer Sebastian Geppert in the BVB dugout next season.
