He played professionally for 14 years with Werder Bremen, Seattle Sounders,[1] Uerdingen 05, VfL Osnabrück, Holstein Kiel and VfB Oldenburg.[2]

Managerial career[edit]

In November 2011, Nouri became part of the coaching staff of VfB Oldenburg.[3] He then became manager of the club between 22 April 2013 and 30 June 2014.[4] He managed the last seven matches of the 2012–13 season and finished with a record of three wins, two draws, and two losses.[5] After the following season, Oldenburg finished in third place with a record of 17 wins, nine draws, and eight losses.[6] In July 2014, Nouri became part of the coaching staff at Werder Bremen serving as an intermediary between first team coach Robin Dutt and reserve team coach Viktor Skrypnyk.[7]

On 25 October 2014, Nouri succeeded Skrypnyk as manager of the reserve team[8] while Skrypnyk became manager of the first team after the dismissal of Dutt.[9]

He was appointed as the head coach of the first team of Bundesliga side Werder Bremen on 18 September 2016.[10] After first serving on an interim basis, Nouri was handed the job permanently on 2 October 2016, with his contract running through to the end of the 2016–17 campaign.[11] Under the helm of Nouri, Bremen escaped the relegation battle and went in contention for European football.[12] In May 2017, his contract with the club was extended.[13]
