Club Brugge have confirmed on their official website that they have appointed Christoph Daum as their new head coach. The German has signed a contract until the summer of 2013. The Belgian side were looking for a new coach after sacking Adrie Koster on October 30 due to a string of poor results. They were linked with the likes of Steve McClaren and Claude Puel but eventually opted to appoint Daum. The 58-year-old started his coaching career with Koln in 1986 and has since worked at Stuttgart, Besiktas, Bayer Leverkusen, Austria Vienna, Fenerbahce and Eintracht Frankfurt. He had been unemployed since leaving Frankfurt in May 2011. Club Brugge currently sit fourth in the Belgian league table. They trail table-toppers Anderlecht by seven points.
