Bayern Munich have confirmed the arrival of former Borussia Dortmund assistant René Maric.
The former Borussia Dortmund assistant steps into the newly-created role in an attempt to "strengthen the interface between the FC Bayern Campus and Säbener Straße".
"We're delighted to have brought in René Marić for the new position of team lead coaching development and playing philosophy at our FC Bayern Campus," said FC Bayern sporting director Christoph Freund.
"René's skilled work at Salzburg caught our eye early on and he was able to further his development in the Bundesliga at Dortmund and Mönchengladbach, as well as in the Premier League at Leeds United. He'll provide us with some new and important impetus."
