Tim Walter is one of the most promising coaches in Germany and took over VfB Stuttgart this summer. He finished last season in a great sixth position with his former club Holstein Kiel and the people took notice of him because of his interesting approaches during his team’s build-up. Now, at Stuttgart, he’s got players with higher induvial quality. However, since 26 players joined the club or returned from loan and 21 left the club, it was clear that it would take some time until all mechanisms under their new coach would work out.
