Former Celtic player Mark Fotheringham is being linked with a move to become a manager in the Bundesliga. Fotheringham has enjoyed a career in coaching in Germany and mainly acted as a No.2 but now he appears to be in the running to become Bochum boss with a report saying that he is expected to be appointed to this role on Friday.
As reported by The Sun, Fotheringham is in talks with the German top flight strugglers as they look to address their slump in form with a change of manager. The 38-year-old is highly rated in Germany for his work as a No.2 at various club but there has often been chatter that he would be keen to make a managerial berth his own.
Fotheringham made his debut in Celtic’s 0-0 draw with St Johnstone at the end of the 1999-2000 season. However, the arrival of Martin O’Neill limited his outings thereafter to just two first-team appearances. In what was a fairly well-travelled career, Fotheringham is keen to make Germany his home and to make himself known in the top flight.
