Hans Michael Weiß (born 11 March 1965) is a German football manager who is the head coach of the Mongolia national football team since January 2017.

Managerial career[edit]

Weiß served internships with several football clubs around the globe such as Real Madrid, Arsenal, Kaiserslautern, and River Plate, to name a few.[1]

He has worked at the Rwanda youth team programs and served as the technical director of the Fédération Rwandaise de Football Association, the governing body of football in Rwanda.[2][3]

In January 2011, he took charge of the Philippines national football team after being referred by the German Football Association in January 2011.[4] Under him, the Azkals rose to their highest-ever placing in the FIFA rankings, 127 (which was later surpassed, 124 under new coach Thomas Dooley). On 15 January 2014, the Philippine Football Federation officially announced that his services had been discontinued.[5]

In April 2014 it was announced that he was part of an 8-man shortlist to replace Eric Nshimiyimana as Rwanda manager.[6]

In June 2014, he took the control of Romanian former champions Oțelul Galați. He was sacked only three months later after a single win in seven games.

On January 18, 2017 it was reported that Weiß was appointed by the Mongolia national football team as their head coach[7] during a meeting of the Executive Committee of the Mongolian Football Federation on January 17.[8] Weiß formally accepted the 1-year deal on 27 March 2017.[9] He immediately began preparations to lead the national under-23 team in 2018 AFC U-23 Championship qualification.[10]

Personal life[edit]

Weiß completed his bachelor's degree in Sports Science and Management at the University of Mainz in 1995. He is married to a Japanese woman and has two daughters (Lisa and Matilda).[citation needed]
