Hamann to start manage in semipro English football

Former Germany international and Champions League winner Dietmar

Hamann will start his managerial career in English football’s

semiprofessional leagues.

The 37-year-old Hamann has signed a one-year contract with

Stockport County, which was demoted from the professional leagues

to the Conference at the end of last season.

Hamann played 62 times for Germany and won the Champions League

in 2005 with Liverpool. He had coaching roles at MK Dons and

Leicester last season.

Stockport had been in the Football League for 105 years before

its relegation.
