GROSS LEAVES STUTTGART(6/7/2010)Today it has been announced that Christian Gross has retired from his role at VfB Stuttgart due to what we believe to be a falling out with current owners over transfer policy. Gross has only been at Stuttgart for under a year however he failed to really make a good impression which disappointed fans. Rumours are already piling in over who could replace Gross at the Mercedes-Benz Arena, with complete Rookie Connor Williamson being tipped as favourite due to links from within the club.
WILLIAMSON TAKES OVER AT STUTTGART(7/7/2010)For once it looks like the rumours were true, English rookie manager Connor Williamson has taken over control in Stuttgart controversially, Williamson has never worked within football before which has left fans in amazement over his appointment, many fans are claiming that he has only been appointed purely down to his friendship with the teams director.
Williamson released this statement earlier on; "It's an incredible honour for me to become the manager of such a huge club, I've loved watching German football for years and I can't wait to hopefully make Stuttgart the most successful German team in history. I understand the fans anxiousness over my appointment however I guarantee I will do my very best to ensure that the team fulfils it's potential."
Williamson then went on to announce that he has brought in ex-premiership footballer Tony Coton in as assistant manager.
