Antonio Di Salvo has appointed new head coach of Germany U21's, replacing Stefan Kuntz, who recently took on the role as Turkey coach.
Di Salvo, a long-term assistant with the team, has put pen to paper on a contract until 2023 as head coach.
Former Bayern München assistant coach Herrmann Gerland, who has worked as a scout for the German Football Association (DFB) since August 2021, has been named Di Salvo's assistant.
"I would like to say thank you to the DFB's executive committee, as well as Oliver Bierhoff, Hansi Flick, Joti Chatzialexiou and Meikel Schönweitz for the trust they have shown in me," said Antonio Di Salvo.
"I am looking forward to tackling the upcoming challenges, together with an exceptional coaching and backroom staff, which has been bolstered by the addition of Hermann Gerland. Our joint goal is to continue the success of our U21s and to meet my own expectations."
