Armin Veh (born 1 February 1961) is a German former football midfielder and current manager of VfB Stuttgart. He won the German championship with Bundesliga team VfB Stuttgart in 2007. Veh and his team also had the chance to win "the double" by winning the DFB-Cup on 26 May 2007 in Berlin, but lost 2–3 in overtime against 1. FC Nürnberg.

Playing career[edit]

Born in Augsburg, Veh played as a midfielder from 1979 to 1983 in Bundesliga at Borussia Mönchengladbach. With Gladbach Veh played in the 1980 UEFA Cup final, losing against Eintracht Frankfurt. In 1984 a broken leg ended his career as a Bundesliga-level pro.

In 1985, Veh resumed playing in his home town for FC Augsburg, moving in 1987 for a few months to local rival TSV Schwaben Augsburg. Due to injuries he played only eight games in the second Bundesliga for SpVgg Bayreuth before retiring in November 1990.

He scored two goals in 65 Bundesliga games, one goal in 60 second Bundesliga games, and appeared in 18 games of Swiss NLA.

Coaching career[edit]

Veh won the Bundesliga with Stuttgart in 2007

Veh was head coach of FC Augsburg from 1990 to 1995.[1]

Veh was head coach of Greuther Fürth between 1 July 1996 and 14 October 1997.[2]

Veh was head coach of Reutlingen 05 from July 1998 to December 2001.[3]

From January 2002, Veh coached Hansa Rostock.[4] Veh resigned in October 2003.[5]

Veh was hired by VfB Stuttgart to replace Giovanni Trapattoni on 10 February 2006.[8] Yet, on 18 April 2006 his contract was extended until summer 2007, and on 19 January 2007 for another year.

In May 2007, Veh and VfB Stuttgart scored their biggest successes by winning the Bundesliga on 19 May 2007 and qualifying for the DFB Cup final of 26 May 2007 in Berlin, which gave Veh and his team the chance to win "the double". The opponent, 1. FC Nürnberg, had beaten Stuttgart twice in regular season, and prevailed again by beating VfB Stuttgart 3–2 in overtime. In the 2007–08 season Stuttgart found it tougher as champions and finished sixth.

On 23 November 2008, Veh parted ways with VfB Stuttgart, due to the club's current performances.[9] His dismissal came in the wake of a 4–1 defeat away at VfL Wolfsburg and a 5 match winless streak.[10]

On 23 May 2009, it was announced that Veh will take over newly crowned Bundesliga champions VfL Wolfsburg from the hands of Felix Magath in July.[11] Veh was sacked as head coach of Wolfsburg on 25 January 2010.[12]

On 24 May 2010, he was announced as the new head coach of Hamburger SV.[13] On 13 March 2011, Veh was sacked by HSV, following a 6–0 hammering by Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga, six points adrift from a spot that would have allowed them to play in the UEFA Europa League the following season.[14]

On 30 May 2011, Veh was announced as the new head coach of Eintracht Frankfurt.[15] After achieving promotion to the Bundesliga in his first season, Veh renewed his expiring contract with Frankfurt for another year.[16] Veh demanded that that the club invest more money in the squad or he'll leave the club.[17] On 3 March 2014, Veh decided not to renew his contract.[18]

On 12 May 2014, Veh return to VfB Stuttgart after signing a contract until 2016.[19]
