FC St. Pauli has strengthened its coaching team for the 2019-20 season with the appointment of another assistant coach in Hans Schrijver. The 59-year-old Dutchman will work alongside head coach Jos Luhukay and assistants Markus Gellhaus and André Trulsen and will chiefly be responsible for opponent analysis.
In his most recent job, Schrijver, who played for the Dutch Olympic team (nine international appearances in 1981/82) during his active career, worked alongside Jos Luhukay at Championship outfit Sheffield Wednesday (2018 bis 2019). Before that the 59-year-old worked as youth coordinator and Under-19 coach at SC Heerenveen (2014 to 2016), head scout at SC Cambuur (2013 to 2014), and assistant coach at Canadian side FC Edmonton (2010 and 2012) and JEF United Chiba in Japan (2011). Schrijver has also had spells as coach and head scout for the Dutch Under-20s/Under-21s (2006 to 2010) and assistant coach and Under-21 coach at FC Groningen (1998 to 2005).
Reaction to the appointment
Director of sport Andreas Bornemann: "Analysing future opponents as well as your own play and players is becoming increasingly important in football. We have therefore decided to add to our options in this area. We're delighted to have won Hans Schrijver for our team with all his experience."
Head coach Jos Luhukay: "Hans has gathered a wealth of experience over the years. He's a valuable addition to our coaching team whose quality will feed into the analysis of our own team and that of the opposition."
Hans Schrijver: "I've already worked alongside Jos as an assistant coach and opponent analyst in England and I'm happy we can continue our collaboration at St. Pauli."
