Augsburg, Augsburg have appointed Manuel Baum on a permanent basis as head coach after he had been in charge in a caretaker capacity.

The 37-year-old former youth team coach had stepped up after the Bundesliga club parted company with Dirk Schuster on December 14. German news agency DPA reported today that his assistant manager will be Alexander Frankenberger.

Augsburg are 12th in the table. In Baum's two games in charge they beat Borussia Moenchengladbach 1-0 at home and drew 1-1 at Borussia Dortmund. They next play Hoffenheim at home on January 21.
