Former Hansa Rostock and Augsburg coach Armin Veh has been named as the replacement for Giovanni Trapattoni at Stuttgart.

Trapattoni was sacked only eight months after joining Stuttgart, with the club failing to win or score a goal in their last three matches.

Trapattoni is the ninth coach in the 18-team Bundesliga to be fired this season.

Under Trapattoni, the ninth Bundesliga coach to be sacked this season, Stuttgart managed only five wins in 20 matches.
