Report: Dutt appointed new DFB sporting director

The German trainer has reportedly agreed to take up a position in the country's football governing body, just months after being sacked by Leverkusen.
Former Leverkusen coach Robin Dutt will join the German Football Federation (DFB) as a technical director, according to reports in Germany.

The 47-year-old has been out of a job since being sacked by Leverkusen in April after a run of poor results in the Bundesliga.

He will take over from Matthias Sammer, who vacated the role at the beginning of the month to take up a similar position at Bayern Munich.

It is believed that Germany coach Joachim Low is happy with the appointment, with Dutt due to be formally unveiled at the federation's headquarters in Frankfurt on Wednesday.

Dutt, who began his coaching career at TSG Leonberg, took charge of Freiburg for four years before joining Leverkusen in March 2011.
