Nagelsmann, 29, became the youngest coach ever in the Bundesliga and has been touted as Carlo Ancelotti’s potential successor at Bayern Munich.

Nagelsmann told the club’s official website he is looking forward to “the challenges ahead” and said that Rosen’s(Hoffenheim’s Sporting Director) new contract

“is a milestone on the path we’ve taken because it’s strong signal for the club, the team as well as the staff members and a sign of continuity and stability.”

Nagelsmann, who guided the Sinsheim-based club from the brink of a relegation battle when he took over in February 2016 to a first ever European qualification – for the UEFA Champions League no less – in the season just ended.

Hoffenheim executive Peter Gorlich said:

“With the efficient application of limited financial means they formed a team which not only thrilled audiences in Germany with fresh and courageous attacking football but also opened the door to Europe for TSG Hoffenheim for the first time ever.” “The recent success carries their thumbprints.”

Nagelsmann can be the youngest Bundesliga manager but his contributions towards the club is massive. The way the German carried a relegation battling side to the heights of Champions League qualifications is nothing less than a fairytale.
