FC Bayern is reorganizing its coaching team for the next generation – and should soon promote ex-star Martin Demichelis.
The 40-year-old Argentine will take on responsibility for the second team with Danny Schwarz, who is five years older than him, this summer. Demichelis and Schwarz will then succeed Holger Seitz, who will switch back to the management of the youth training center.
Demichelis is currently training the U19, Schwarz is the U17 coach.
Both must pass an exam beforehand. In spring, Schwarz will complete the football teacher training course at the German Football Association. Demichelis is working on his Pro license.
According to information from SPORT1 the changes are not yet fixed, but Demichelis and Schwarz are the top favorites.
“I’m a team player and I’m with the U19 to learn and gain experience. I still have time to develop, but my goal is to be a professional coach one day. Now I want to learn quickly to then to be ready at some point “, Demichelis said in the SPORT1 interview at the end of the 2019/20 season and also raved about the collaboration with Schwarz: “Danny loves the game philosophy of Pep Guardiola as much as I do. We benefit from the fact that we have the same game idea.”
Demichelis played 51 international matches for Argentina, and was also in the 2014 World Cup final against Germany. In his professional career (including FC Bayern, Manchester City), he played 481 competitive games and won a number of titles.

Galm was a junior coach in Hoffenheim for five years. As a footballer, he played for the Stuttgarter Kickers in the 3rd division, as well as for Energie Cottbus, Frankfurt II and Lautern II. His contract with TSG expires in the summer.
“We would like to thank Danny Galm for his work and commitment and wish him all the best for the future. Due to different ideas we could not agree on a continuation of our cooperation,” said Academy Director Marcus Mann on the Hoffenheim homepage.
