Gerhard Struber

Ten years ago, Gerhard Struber was coaching his hometown club in Kuchl in his spare time when they faced our Red Bulls in a friendly match. Kuchl did so well that a watching Ralf Rangnick made contact with Struber and convinced him to give up his job at an insurance company to take a coaching job at the Red Bull Football Academy. In the latest episode of the LEADERTALK Podcast, our head coach talks about the reasons he made the move and his career since.

"Not everyone could understand it," said Struber. "I went with my gut instinct, but also became convinced by Ralf Rangnick. He is a coach who has incredible enthusiasm for what he does. That impressed me. He was a big influence on my path."
