Germany's main sporting tabloid is now reporting that - after holding talks on the matter - FSV Mainz 05 have opted to offer interim head-coach Jan Siewert a permanent position.

Mainz have won one, lost two, and drawn four league matches since Siewert took over for the departed Bo Svensson at the beginning of November. Though the Nullfünfter only achieved a victory in the first of Siewert's seven matches in charge, the general play of the team has left many to conclude that the Rheinhessen are playing well under Siewert's stewardship.
The German tabloid reports that an announcement may be delayed for a few days whilst the details of Siewert's new contract are finalized. The 41-year-old has been working with the club as a youth trainer and assistant coach since 2020. Siewert also served as the team's interim trainer once before in January 2021 just prior to Svensson's arrival.
