Eintracht Frankfurt has presented Armin Veh as coach to try to lead the club to an immediate Bundesliga return.

Frankfurt presented the 50-year-old former Hamburg coach on Tuesday, two weeks after Christoph Daum left the club following relegation on the final day of the season.

The club's new sporting director, Bruno Huebner, says former Hamburger SV coach Veh ''corresponds exactly to our requirements ... he has much experience and calm, and can work well under pressure.''

Veh, who was fired by Hamburg with eight games of the season remaining, had previous spells in charge of Wolfsburg and Stuttgart, which he led to the Bundesliga title in 2007.


Veh said: ''I'm looking forward to the interesting work with Eintracht. This club simply belongs back in the Bundesliga.''
