Eintracht Frankfurt today named Armin Veh as their new coach with the brief to lead the club straight back to the Bundesliga.

Veh, who led Stuttgart to the 2007 German title, will work alongside newly-appointed sporting director Bruno Hubner at the Commerzbank Arena.

Hubner said: "I wanted only him. He was the first and only candidate."

Veh, 50, succeeds Christoph Daum, who left following the club's relegation at the end of the recently-completed season.
