Peter Neururer (born April 26, 1955 in Marl ) is a German football coach and functional .


Neururer was an active football player in the amateur league. In order to be able to participate in professional football, he decided early on for a career as a coach.

First experience

He began his coaching career after completing his sports teacher diploma at TuS Haltern . At Rot-Weiss Essen and Alemannia Aachen , the avowed FC Schalke 04 fan found his first short-term jobs in the professional business at the end of the 1980s, before he became head coach of FC Schalke 04 , who played in the 2nd Bundesliga, on April 11, 1989 . was appointed. Although he was able to show his first successes (second place in the table in the 2nd Bundesliga), club president Günter Eichberg surprisingly gave the coach on November 13, 1990.

"Firefighter" (1st and 2nd Bundesliga)

Neururer left the Ruhr area and acquired the reputation of a "firefighter" in the coming years due to numerous short-term jobs, as he mainly took on teams that were in relegation battle. He ran his first Bundesliga club with Hertha BSC . After 12 games, his team had achieved 2 points with a goal difference of 16:43, he was released. The clubs 1. FC Saarbrücken , Hannover 96 and 1. FC Cologne , Fortuna Düsseldorf , Kickers Offenbach and LR Ahlen followed . In none of these clubs did he stay in office for more than two years.

Success with Bochum

Neururer had long-term success with VfL Bochum , where he succeeded Bernard Dietz in the 2nd Bundesliga on December 4, 2001 . Right away he led the club back to the first division and in the meantime to the top of the table. Because of this success, VfL extended the contract with Neururer on March 4, 2004 for another two years until June 30, 2007. VfL reached fifth place in the Bundesliga in the 2003/04 season and thus played in the 2004/05 season in the UEFA Cup . Here the qualification for the rest of the group stage was missed. Continuing failure in the 2004/05 season put VfL in an acute risk of relegation, so that the then chairman of the supervisory board, Werner Altegoer , and Neururer jointly agreed in May 2005 to terminate the contract at the end of the season if VfL Bochum should be relegated . After the descent of VfL, Marcel Koller was presented to the public on May 23, 2005 as his successor .

The third last game with VfL Bochum against 1. FC Nürnberg on May 7, 2005, which the Franks won 2-1, was Neururer's 500th game as head coach in the professional area and at the same time his 100th Bundesliga appearance as coach on the bench of VfL. This game was followed by two wins in the last two games of the season against Stuttgart and in Hamburg.

Hannover 96

From November 9, 2005 to August 30, 2006, Neurur was a coach at the first division club Hannover 96 . At the end of the 2005/06 season he was already controversial again, because the club could not build on the initial successes after his appointment in the second half of the season and the season goal - single-digit table position - was missed. After the third game day of the 2006/07 season, Hannover 96 and Neururer parted amicably. Neururer was still under contract with Hanover until summer 2007. In 2015 he was being discussed as the successor to Tayfun Korkut .

MSV Duisburg

On November 16, 2008, MSV Duisburg signed Neururer as the successor to Rudi Bommer . His contract, which was initially limited to the end of the 2008/09 season, was extended in the spring of 2009 by one year to the end of the 2009/10 season. After a failed start in the second division season 2009/10 , the paths of the MSV and Neururer parted on October 29, 2009. His successor was Milan Šašić .

Return to VfL Bochum

On April 8, 2013, Neururer succeeded Karsten Neitzel as coach at VfL Bochum, six match days before the end of the season , who was at the relegation place of the 2nd Bundesliga at that time. He initially received a contract until the end of the 2012/13 season . The first four games of VfL Bochum under his management could be won, three of them without conceding a goal. Due to the initial success, VfL played for the second time in the club's second division history on May 4, 2013 in a sold-out home ground. On the penultimate match day, Bochum secured early league under Neururer. Thereupon he agreed with the club to extend his contract until June 2015. On December 9th, 2014 he was released from his duties because of "behavior that was harmful to the club".

Association of Contract Football Players

2017-2018 and since August 2020 he has been working for the players' union Vereinigung der contractfußballfahrer (VDV), where he trains unemployed former professional football players in order to keep them fit for a return to professional business.

Career as a television expert

Since the 2012/13 season is Neururer regular at the football - talk show Fantalk of Sport1 . Neururer did not give up this activity when he returned to a coaching job at VfL Bochum in 2013. Neururer has been an expert on the Sport1 talk show Doppelpass since summer 2015 . In addition, Neururer is also used as an expert in soccer games broadcast by Sport1 on the sidelines. At the side of Hans Sarpei, he has been part of the Sport1 program “Das T stands for Coach” since the beginning of 2017. His work at the Association of Contract Footballers was the subject of the six-part documentary series FC Unemployed - Back to the Big Game , which was broadcast on Nitro in autumn 2018 .

Career as a functionary

In March 2019 Neururer was introduced as the new sporting director of the regional league team SG Wattenscheid 09 , but withdrew five months later after the club's finances deteriorated.
