Armin Veh (born 1 February 1961), is a German former footballer and current manager. He won the German championship with Bundesliga team VfB Stuttgart on May 19, 2007. Veh and his team also had the chance to win "the double" by winning the DFB-Cup on 26 May 2007 in Berlin, but lost 2-3 in overtime against 1. FC Nuremberg.

Playing career

Born in Augsburg, Veh played as a midfielder from 1979 to 1983 in Bundesliga at Borussia Mönchengladbach. With Gladbach Veh played in the 1980 UEFA Cup final, losing against Eintracht Frankfurt. In 1984 a broken leg ended his career as a Bundesliga-level pro.

In 1985, Veh resumed playing in his home town for FC Augsburg, moving in 1987 for a few months to local rival TSV Schwaben Augsburg. Due to injuries he played only eight games in second Bundesliga for SpVgg Bayreuth before retiring in November 1990.

He scored two goals in 65 Bundesliga games, one goal in 60 second Bundesliga games, and appeared in 18 games of Swiss NLA.

Managerial career

Back at his home town, he coached FC Augsburg from 1990 to 1995, leading the team from Oberliga to Regionalliga in 1994. Having moved in 1996 to SpVgg Greuther Fürth, he led the team 1997 into 2. Bundesliga before being sacked in October 1997. From July 1998 to December 2001 he coached SSV Reutlingen, leading them in 2000 also into 2. Bundesliga.

From January 2002 on, Veh coached Hansa Rostock in Bundesliga, resigning in October 2003 from the north eastern team to focus on his family in southern Germany. After coaching local FC Augsburg until September 2004, he was unemployed until 11 February 2006 when he was hired by VfB Stuttgart to replace Giovanni Trapattoni as a stop-gap until the end of that season in June 2006. Yet, on 18 April 2006 his contract was extended until summer 2007, and on 19 January 2007 for another year.

In May 2007, Veh and VfB Stuttgart scored their biggest successes by winning the German championship on 19 May 2007 and qualifying for the DFB Cup final of 26 May 2007 in Berlin, which gave Veh and his team the chance to win "the double". The opponent, 1. FC Nuremberg, had beaten Stuttgart twice in regular season, and prevailed again by beating VfB Stuttgart 3-2 in overtime. In the 2007–08 season Stuttgart found it tougher as champions and finished sixth.

On 23 November 2008 Veh parted ways with VfB Stuttgart, due to the club's current performances.[1] His dismissal came in the wake of a 4-1 defeat away at VfL Wolfsburg and a 5 match winless streak.[2]

On 23 May 2009 it was announced that Veh will take over newly-crowned Bundesliga champions VfL Wolfsburg from the hands of Felix Magath in July.

On 25 January 2010 Veh was sacked as manager of Wolfsburg.
