Peter Bosz has vowed to show Germany what he’s made of in his first press conference as Bayer Leverkusen coach

The Dutchman was announced as Heiko Herrlich’s replacement at Leverkusen on December 23 in what will be his second stint in German football.

Bosz previously coached Borussia Dortmund in 2017, which saw him get the sack after winning just eight of his 24 games in charge.

But the 55-year-old is determined to use that experience to his advantage this time and promised Germany they haven’t seen what he can do yet.

“I desperately wanted to come back to the Bundesliga,” said Bosz, according to the Bundesliga website.

“The people in Germany haven’t seen the real Peter Bosz yet. Now they’ll get to know him at Bayer Leverkusen, but I can’t repeat the mistakes that I made at Dortmund. I have to learn from that experience.”

Bosz’s first game with Leverkusen will be at the BayArena against Borussia Monchengladbach on January 19 in the Bundesliga.
