Robin Dutt starts work at Bayer Leverkusen

Last seasons Bundesliga runners-up Bayer 04 Leverkusen yesterday introduced their new coach Robin Dutt at a press conference to the media before Robin Dutt held his first coaching session at his new club infront of 500 interested fans.

The Coach of Indian origin had joined the Rhineland club this summer from SC Freiburg, where he had coached successfully the last few years. Leverkusen is the biggest coaching assignment of his career so far and Robin pointed that out. When asked about his ambitions with the club he said he would like to fulfil the long cherished dream of Bayer 04 Leverkusen to finally win the Bundesliga title.

A confident Robin Dutt explained, "At Freiburg finishing ninth was a big achievement last season. Here in Leverkusen finishing outside the international spots would be a disaster, Europa League would be average, Champions League would be good and winning a title would be outstanding. That is what I would like to achieve here."

The 46 year old was born in Cologne, which is on the other side of the Rhine from Leverkusen, though he spend most of his life around the Stuttgart area before moving to Freiburg.

Robin Dutt belongs to the new generation of coaches. When asked about his style of football Robin said, "We should not be predictable in our game. There is no tactical system which remains the same for 60 matches."

It is clear Robin wants to be flexible in the way his team plays and prepare his side for different situations throughout the season. Other key aspects of his approach are respect and discipline.

One can only wish him all the best at Bayer 04 Leverkusen!
