After yet another relegation Stuttgart are in process of rebuilding, with last season’s Holstein Kiel manager Tim Walter the new man in charge. As it happens always after relegation Walter saw 7 regulars leaving the club, but the large amounts of money that came in from Pavard’s transfer allowed Stuttgart to reinforce well. Probably the most impressive signing made was that of Klement, who was Player of the Season in 2018/19 when leading Paderborn to promotion. Instead of going up with the Blues he decided to join Stuttgart. In him the team now has a player that pretty much guarantees 10+ goals and 10+ assists. Other interesting names that joined Stuttgart and are expected to be important figures were goalkeeper Kobel, right-back Stenzel and centre forward Kalajdzic. It remains to be seen if more regulars will leave though, with Walter also still actively looking for reinforcements as the depth is poor only a week before the start of the season. With only one typical right-back on the books and hardly any wide attacking players available those are positions in which Stuttgart need to reinforce in the coming weeks. Veterans Insua, Castro and Gomez will be the main providers of confidence and their rich experience will be relied on much more often in this division. Walter is yet to pick favourite formation, with Stuttgart currently incline to start most pre-season tests with 4-2-3-1 shape, but regularly changing it to 3-5-2 or 3-4-2-1 in second halves of matches. It seems that, until the final squad for the season ahead is known, the gaffer won’t rush with decision on the formation he will be using.

Target


Quick return to the top flight is the goal, with Stuttgart definitely expected to be amongst the frontrunners all season.

Season Review
2019/2020

№2: VFB Stuttgart

Stuttgart did very well to immediately bounce back into the top flight after relegation suffered in 2019. Strong start (W6 D2 L0 in opening 8 rounds) and finish (4 wins in last 7 games) to the season proved crucial, as well as the managerial change that took place during the winter break. Tim Walter lost the confidence in him in November and December, with his replacement Pellegrino Matarazzo definitely making the Swabians play better football in 2020. The main strengths of the team were their versatile forwards and the inner midfielders, who were controlling most games with confidence. This was particularly profound at home, with 12 of the 17 league wins achieved in Stuttgart. Issues in defence were the main reason for the stumbles, with Stuttgart excused by fact that pair of starting centre-backs suffered serious injuries early in campaign, both Kempf and Kaminski missed lots of games. Nicolas Gonzalez and Silas Wamangituka look to have found their most effective roles down the wings late in the season, while Japanese anchor-man Endo was crucial all campaign and by far the most consistent player in the squad. Clearly the main goal next season will be to establish in the top flight, but for that to happen at least 3-4 experienced new signings will have to be made to support the many young players in the squad. New left-back urgently needed.


Player of the Season: Wataru Endo
