Ralph Hasenhüttl (born 9 August 1967) is an Austrian football manager and former player. He is currently the coach of RB Leipzig.

Playing career[edit]

Club career[edit]

After several successful years playing as a centre-forward in the Austrian league, Hasenhüttl moved abroad, with spells at KV Mechelen and Lierse SK in Belgium. In season 1998–99, he signed for 1. FC Köln, for a fee equivalent to €200,000. In his two years in Cologne, however, he only scored three goals and in 2000 moved to SpVgg Greuther Fürth.

Hasenhüttl finished his career at FC Bayern Munich II, in the Regionalliga Süd.

International career[edit]

Hasenhüttl played eight times for the Austrian national team, scoring three goals.

Managerial career[edit]

Between 2004 and 2005, Hasenhüttl was a youth-team coach at SpVgg Unterhaching. Following the sacking of Harry Deutinger in March 2007, he became caretaker manager until the appointment of Werner Lorant, under whom he worked as assistant coach. On 4 October 2007, Hasenhüttl became the new head coach.[1] His first match was 2–2 draw against SSV Reutlingen 05.[2] Unterhaching finished in sixth place that season.[3] In the 2008–09 season, in the newly formed 3. Liga, the team's performances earned them fourth place in the table, missing out on a play-off place by only one point.[4] Unterhaching were eliminated in the first round of the German Cup.[5] In the 2009–10 season, however, they failed to build upon their success, achieving only 31 points in 24 games,[6] resulting in Hasenhüttl's sacking in 22 February 2010. His final match was a 1–1 draw against Borussia Dortmund II on 21 February 2010.[7] He finished with a record of 40 wins, 20 draws, and 28 losses.[1]

In January 2011, Hasenhüttl succeeded Rainer Scharinger as the coach of third-division VfR Aalen,[8] then in 16th place, one point above the relegation zone. His first match was a 1–1 draw against VfB Stuttgart II.[9] Aalen's survival in the 3. Liga earned him a year's contract extension. In the 2011–12 season, he completely rebuilt the team, bringing in eight new players and releasing 14, with the aim of a mid-table finish. After a slow start to the season, the team found itself in sixth place at the winter break, only a point behind the play-off position. The team's run continued into the second half of the season, which included an eight-game winning streak, earning Hasenhüttl a further two-year contract extension in November 2011. At the end of the season, Aalen finished in second place, earning automatic promotion to the 2. Bundesliga. During pre-season training in the summer of 2012, Hasenhüttl contracted a Hantavirus infection, but returned to work three weeks into the 2012–13 season. Hasenhüttl had switched from a 4–4–2 to a 4–5–1 formation, to facilitate a fast, counter-attacking game, with surprising success – by the winter break, Aalen were in fifth place. The team finished the season in ninth place, the highest of the newly promoted teams. After two-and-a-half successful years at Aalen, Hasenhüttl resigned in June 2013,[10] following disagreements with sporting director Markus Schupp, who had imposed an austerity program for the following season, with several departing players not being replaced. He finished with a record of 36 wins, 28 draws, ans 29 losses.[8]

In October 2013, Hasenhüttl was appointed as coach of FC Ingolstadt 04,[11] replacing Marco Kurz. In his first season, he took them from bottom of the 2. Bundesliga to tenth place. In season 2014/15, Hasenhüttl took Ingolstadt to the Bundesliga for the first time, finishing the season as champions. In 2015/16, he was successful in securing Ingolstadt's Bundesliga survival, finishing in 11th place, but chose not to extend his contract. He finished with a record of .[12]

In May 2016, he was confirmed as the new trainer of newly promoted RB Leipzig.[13] He took over on 1 July 2016.[14] His first match was against Dynamo Dresden in the German Cup.[15] Leipzig lost 5–4 in a shootout.[16]
