BERLIN - Borussia Moenchengladbach have appointed former player Michael Frontzeck as their new head coach following a turbulent season that saw them avoid relegation on the final day. The 45-year-old, who was sacked by Arminia Bielefeld just before they were relegated, signed a two-year deal, the club said on their website on Wednesday. Frontzeck takes over from Hans Meyer, who walked away from the job after securing Borussia's place in the Bundesliga. A former Borussia player for about 10 years, Frontzeck has also worked as an assistant coach at the club.
