The club has also decided to part ways with assistant coaches Hendrie Krüzen and Rob Maas, as well as coach Terry Peters.
“I am very happy with the trust placed in me, because Bayer 04 is not just any club for me. Leverkusen has been one of the most attractive destinations in German football for years,” with a “very ambitious” environment and a team of “great talent,” said Wolf, who will have Peter Hermann as assistant coach.
