Glasner, 49, started his coaching career with Austrian sides SV Ried and LASK before heading to the Bundesliga with Wolfsburg.

His greatest success came at Frankfurt, winning the Europa League in 2022 by beating Rangers in the final on penalties.

Glasner’s side followed up that success by finishing runners-up in the German Cup the following season.

Frankfurt decided to part ways with Glasner at the end of the 2022-23 season, a year before his contract was set to expire after a disappointing second half of the campaign.

Sky Germany’s Philipp Hinze breaks down exactly what Oliver Glasner will bring to the Premier League

Sky Germany reporter Philipp Hinze:

“Glasner is an under-rated coach, he is a mastermind tactically and he has his own mind.

“He is very strong and powerful and not the kind of person that says yes to everything.

“He is special in a positive way and a very good coach.”
