Dundee United boss Csaba Laszlo has appointed his long-time assistant Werner Burger as first-team coach at Tannadice.
The Tele exclusively revealed at the start of May Burger would be joining the Tangerines backroom staff and the club confirmed it yesterday.
Burger worked under Csaba for three years at Hearts between 2008 and 2011 as well as at MTK Budapest and Slovak side DAC Dunajska Streda.
Laurie Ellis will continue in his role of assistant manager.
The 60-year-old German said: “I am delighted to join Dundee United.
“Csaba and I have very similar ideas about football and I think you need that as a base to develop a team that is capable of meeting your targets.”
Meanwhile, Csaba added that Burger had turned down opportunities in Germany to make the switch to Scotland once more.
The United gaffer said: “I am very pleased Werner has turned down other options in Germany to link up with me here.
“I feel that, together with Laurie, Craig and Scott, we now have a very strong backroom team to foster the right mentality and team spirit in the squad.”
Burger made regular appearances at Dundee United matches last season as well as watching training sessions before finally being appointed as first-team coach.
