FC St. Pauli have extended the contract of assistant coach Peter Németh, which was due to expire at the end of the season, after director of sport Andreas Bornemann and the 51-year-old Slovak agreed terms on a new deal.

Németh moved to the Millerntor in December 2022, having previously served as assistant coach to Uwe Neuhaus at Dynamo Dresden and Arminia Bielefeld, achieving promotion to the Bundesliga as second-division champions at the latter in the 2019/20 season. He also filled in as caretaker coach at Dynamo Dresden and Sportfreunde Siegen. During his playing career Németh had spells at Banik Ostrava, Eintracht Frankfurt and Inter Bratislava, among others. He also played 22 times for Slovakia.

Director of sport Andreas Bornemann: "Peter slotted in extremely well from day one, and with his experience, expertise and meticulous way of working is an important part of the coaching team, which is why it was the clear wish of everyone involved to continue our journey together."

Head coach Fabian Hürzeler: "I'm delighted to continue the successful association with Peter. We have a very trusting and constructive dialogue and he assumes lots of responsibility on and off the pitch. His experience and open manner make him an important go-to person both for me and the players."

Peter Németh: "I really enjoy working with the coaching team, the players and everyone at the club. The chemistry is right, both on a personal level and in terms of the way we work together, which makes it even more pleasing to see it reflected in the success on the pitch. I look forward to the challenges ahead and to continuing on the path we are on."
