The 2013–14 Hannover 96 season is the 118th season in the club's football history. In 2013–14 the club plays in the Bundesliga, the premier tier of German football. It is the club's eleventh season in this league, having been promoted from the 2. Bundesliga in 2002.

Off-season[edit]

Hannover made five new signings over the summer period—Salif Sané from Nancy,[1] Edgar Prib from Greuther Fürth,[2] Leonardo Bittencourt from Borussia Dortmund,[3] and youngsters Konstantin Fuhry from Stuttgart under-19's[4] and Florian Ballas from Nürnberg II.[5]

Hannover also lost Sérgio Pinto to Levante [6] and both Mohammed Abdellaoue[7] and Konstantin Rausch[8] to Stuttgart. Additionally, Mario Eggimann left to join Union Berlin,[9] Sofian Chahed left on a free transfer and Johan Djourou returned to Arsenal before signing on loan at rivals Hamburger SV.[10]

During the winter break, rumours arose regarding the situation of manager Mirko Slomka due to the team's recent poor form, and on 27 December, he was fired. [11]

As per the norm for German football teams, during the mid-season break, the teams have training camps in countries with warmer winter climates. This year, Hannover 96 will be in Belek, Turkey, between 9 January and 17 January, along with Hertha BSC and Borussia Mönchengladbach, prior to the Niedersaschen derby at Wolfsburg on 25 January.

On 31 December 2013, it was announced that Turkish manager Tayfun Korkut had become the new manager of Hannover[12] on a contract running until 30 June 2016. He is the second Turkish coach to manage in the Bundesliga.
