Mainz appoint new head coach

Mainz have announced Bo Henriksen as their new head coach.
After relieving Jan Siewert of his duties as head coach on Monday, Mainz have now announced his successor.

49-year-old Danish coach Bo Henriksen takes over the job on a contract until 2026.

He makes the move to Germany from Swiss side FC Zürich.

"We undertook an intense analysis of the tough situation we currently find ourselves in to determine which type of coach and which style of play would fit best to us," said Mainz head of sport Christian Hedfel.

"This led us to Bo Henriksen, a coach that has managed to bring his teams together and get them to play a pragmatic, yet courageous and ultimately successful, brand of football several times already in his career. Bo is also a very emotional, honest and opinionated person, who exudes positive energy and will fit in perfectly at Mainz 05."

Mainz sit 17th in the table, having won just one of their last 12 Bundesliga games.
