He was later a manager for Rot-Weiß Erfurt, FC Sachsen Leipzig and Assistant coach by Bursaspor and 1. FC Nuremberg.[4] On 1 June 2010, he replaced René van Eck at his former club FC Carl Zeiss Jena as head coach.[5]

In October 2014, he signed for the Singapore national team on a one-year contract. His role was to work with head coach, Bernd Stange particularly in the area of fitness.[6][7] After former Courts Young Lions head coach, Aide Iskandar's resignation, he was named the head coach for the Courts Young Lions in the Singapore League for the rest of the 2015 season.

In January 2017, less than a week after announcing the parting of ways with Akbar Nawas, Tampines Rovers FC have confirmed Juergen Raab as their head coach for the 2017 S.League season.

The former Young Lions FC coach will arrive and sign a three-year contract to take charge of the five-time S.League champions.
