Hubertus "Huub" Jozef Margaretha Stevens (born 29 November 1953 in Sittard) is a Dutch football manager and former defender, currently coach of Austrian Football Bundesliga outfit FC Red Bull Salzburg.


Playing career

While active, he played for Fortuna Sittard and PSV Eindhoven. During his time at PSV he won the Eredivisie 3 times, the KNVB Cup once and also won the UEFA Cup once in 1978. He also earned 18 caps for the Netherlands (one goal).

Coaching career

Soon after beginning his career as head of youth development at PSV, where he helped bring and develop players and coaches such as Nick Theslof[1], Stevens began his managerial career in 1993 with Roda JC from Kerkrade. From October 1996 to June 2002 Stevens coached German team Schalke 04, with who he won the UEFA Cup in 1997 and the DFB-Pokal in 2001 and 2002. Afterwards, he was appointed head coach of Hertha BSC, but he was sacked on 4 December 2003 because of lack of success. Thereafter he was hired by 1. FC Köln, which he coached from 14 June 2004 to 22 May 2005. Under Stevens, 1. FC Köln became champions of the 2. Bundesliga and were promoted to the 1. Bundesliga. In May 2005 Stevens returned to the Netherlands and Roda JC.

On 2 February 2007, he returned to the German Bundesliga, becoming the new coach at Hamburger SV replacing Thomas Doll, who had been sacked due to lack of success. By the time Stevens took over, the club was in the relegation zone. Results improved quite dramatically and led to Hamburg avoiding relegation and even finishing 8th in the league, thus qualifying for UEFA Intertoto Cup 2007.

Stevens took over the vacancy at PSV Eindhoven after his HSV contract expired at the end of the 2007–08 season. It has been reported he has signed a two year contract with the Eindhoven club, a club he holds very dearly to his heart. Following poor results, Stevens resigned due to working differences with the players.[2] He left PSV in January 2009 and signed a contract with FC Red Bull Salzburg on 21 April 2009[3]. He started his job on 01 July 2009.

On 9 February 2010, Stevens extended his contract with FC Red Bull Salzburg until 2012.[4][5]
