Henning Bürger (born 16 December 1969 in Zeulenroda-Triebes) is a former German footballer[1] and current manager. As a player, he spent three seasons in the DDR-Oberliga with FC Carl Zeiss Jena, as well as five seasons in the Bundesliga with FC Schalke 04, 1. FC Saarbrücken, 1. FC Nürnberg, FC St. Pauli, and Eintracht Frankfurt.

Coaching career[edit]

Bürger took over as manager of then 2. Bundesliga side FC Carl Zeiss Jena in 2008,[2] but could not prevent the club's relegation to the 3. Liga at the end of the season. He was released by Jena after a 0–6 defeat on 14 September 2008 against VfB Stuttgart II.[3] Since 2011, Bürger manages the reserve side of Eintracht Braunschweig.[4] During the 2015–2016 season, Bürger additionally worked as assistant coach of Eintracht's first team.[5]
