Hoffenheim coach Ralf Rangnick is set to be rewarded with a new contract after another successful campaign.

Rangnick led the club to back-to-back promotions in his first two seasons in charge before taking Hoffenheim to the summit of the Bundesliga at the midway stage of their debut season in the top flight last year.

The club eventually finished in seventh position and owner Dietmar Hopp is well pleased with the progress so far.

He now hopes to extend the stay of Rangnick, who was born just 40 miles away from Hoffenheim in Backnang.

Aim

Hopp told newspaper Rhein-Neckar Zeitung: "I think it should be our aim to extend Ralf Rangnick's contract.

"The coach has an important standing at Hoffenheim. Without him, lots of players would not have come here."

Rangnick previously led Schalke from the brink of relegation into Europe in just a few months and also guided Hannover into the top flight in 2002.

His achievements with Hoffenheim have further enhanced his reputation and Hopp believes there is more to come.

Not reached

The owner added: "We have not reached our peak in Hoffenheim yet.

"Furthermore, he [Rangnick] has the invaluable advantage here of being able to travel back to his family every evening."

It seems Rangnick will agree to extend his stay at the club given he has admitted to having "never felt as happy" throughout his whole career as he is now.
