First league win for Heidenheim in a coaching record
Promoted Stories 1. FC Heidenheim achieved its first win in the Bundesliga.
In coach Frank Schmidt’s record game, the newcomer beat Werder Bremen 4:2 (2:0). Tim Kleindienst converted a hand penalty (5th), Werder loanee Eren Dinkci (44th/68th) scored a brace, Jan-Niklas Beste (76th) made the decision. The two goals for the guests were scored by Marvin Ducksch (49th) and Mitchell Weiser (64th) in front of 15,000 spectators in the sold-out stadium. Heidenheim’s coach Schmidt is now the longest-serving coach in German professional football. Exactly 16 years ago to the day, the 49-year-old took over in Heidenheim and replaced former Freiburg coach Volker Finke as the longest-serving coach in the history of German professional football. Finke looked after Freiburg from 1991 to 2007.
