Ebbsfleet United have been speaking of the considerable groundwork that led to their appointment of German manager Dennis Kutrieb today.
Fleet’s future in terms of league standing is uncertain, with the team still in the relegation places of the National League at the time of March’s initial season suspension. Under Kevin Watson they had climbed to within a point of safety and still had seven games remaining.
Having chosen not to renew Watson’s deal, the club have been busy trying to find a successor, with recent TB Berlin boss Dennis Kutrieb unveiled as the new man today.
The club said as part of the announcement: “Dennis is one of Germany’s most highly regarded young managers and we are extremely pleased to secure his services to take the club forward. A feature of Dennis’ success has been his tactical flexibility and dynamic tactical management during matches, along with his meticulous and thorough approach to preparation.
“An exhaustive and thorough process has been undertaken to identify and profile the attributes that best suit our club going forward to provide the optimal structure for stable and consistent football operations and results.”
