Dieter-Klaus Hecking (pronounced [ˈdiːtɐ ˈhɛkɪŋ]; born 12 September 1964) is a German football manager for Borussia Mönchengladbach and former professional player. He played for Hannover 96 and Eintracht Braunschweig. He returned to manage Hannover despite the long-standing and bitter rivalry between the two clubs.

Managerial career

Early career (2000–04)

On 1 July 2000, Hecking moved into management as he took over as manager at Regionalliga Nord outfit SC Verl.[1] His first match was a 2–0 loss to Eintracht Braunschweig on 1 August 2000.[2] However, Hecking's proclamations that he was seeking a new position irked the club to such an extent they fired him after just 20 games in charge. He was sacked on 31 January 2001.[1] His final match was a 2–1 win to Tennis Borussia Berlin.[2] Verl were in seventh place when Hecking was sacked.[3]

Hecking wasn't free for long as another Regionalliga Nord side, VfB Lübeck, came calling on 27 March 2001.[4] His first match was a 1–0 loss to Fortuna Düsseldorf on 30 March 2001.[5] Hecking achieved a solid job in the remaining games, leaving the club in third place, just one short of promotion.[6] This set the basis for the following season as the team claimed the title and moved up into the 2. Bundesliga.[7] Lübeck were knocked out of the German Cup by Werder Bremen.[8] Hecking then managed to secure Lübeck an 11th place in the 2002–03 season.[9] Lübeck were knocked out of the German Cup by MSV Duisburg.[10] The following season proved to have mixed results. In the league, the club slipped back down to the Regionalliga Nord, occupying the final relegation position.[11] However, they also got to the semi-finals of the German Cup, where they were eliminated by Werder Bremen.[12] This proved the catalyst for VfB Lübeck to announce that they would not be extending his contract further and he left the club on 25 May 2004.[13]

Alemannia Aachen (2004–06)

Once again, Hecking was not short of work as just a week later 2. Bundesliga side Alemannia Aachen announced that he would be taking the managerial reins at their club, after the departure of Jörg Berger.[14]

Hecking's first match was a 1–1 draw against Eintracht Frankfurt on 9 August 2004.[15] During the 2004–05 season, Alemannia Aachen participated in the UEFA Cup, where they got to second round when they eliminated by AZ Alkmaar.[15] In the German Cup, Alemannia Aachen were eliminated in the second round by Bayern Munich.[15] In the league, Alemannia Aachen finished in sixth place.[16] The 2005–06 season started with a 2–1 loss to Erzgebirge Aue on 8 August 2005.[17] Hannover 96 eliminated Alemannia Aachen in the second round of the German Cup.[17] Alemannia Aachen finished second in the 2. Bundesliga and was promoted to the Bundesliga.[18]

Hecking's time guiding Alemannia Aachen in the top flight was short. Just three games in,[19] he requested to be able to leave the club for his former club and fellow Bundesliga side Hannover 96 on 7 September 2006, to fill the vacancy left by their sacking of Peter Neururer.[20] Ironically, the final straw for Neururer was a 0–3 home defeat to Hecking's Alemannia Aachen.[20] Alemannia Aachen were in 14th place when Hecking left the club.[21] Hecking finished with a record of 42 wins, 14 draws, and 27 losses in 82 matches.[22]

Hannover 96 (2006–09)

Hecking became manager on 7 September 2006.[20] Dieter Hecking officially took over the manager's job with immediate effect on 7 September 2006.[20] However, caretaker manager Michael Schjönberg managed the DFB-Pokal match against Dynamo Dresden on 9 September 2006.[23][24] Hecking recovered Hannover from a dismal start that left them bottom at the time of his arrival. The team also achieved a good run through to the quarter finals of the German Cup,[25] and finished comfortably in 11th place in the Bundesliga.[26] During the following season, Hanover were knocked out of the German Cup in the second round by Schalke 04.[27] Hannover improved on their league position by finishing in eighth place.[28] Hannover started the 2008–09 season with a 5–0 win against Hallescher FC on 9 August 2008.[29] They were eventually eliminated in the second round by Schalke, for the second consecutive year.[29] Hannover defeated Borussia Mönchengladbach 5–1 on 14 September 2008.[30] The following week, on 19 September 2008, Hannover lost to Bayer Leverkusen 4–0.[31] Hannover lost to 1899 Hoffenheim 5–2 on 18 October 2008.[32] Hannover lost 4–0 to Eintracht Frankfurt on 22 November 2008.[33] The match against VfB Stuttgart on 14 February 2009 finished in a 3–3 draw.[34] Hannover lost to Bayern Munich 5–1 on 7 March 2009.[35] The match against Borussia Dortmund on 14 March 2009 finished in a 4–4 draw.[36] Hannover lost to Wolfsburg 5–0 on 16 May 2009.[37] Hannover finished the 2008–09 season in 11th place.[38] On 19 August 2009 Hecking resigned voluntarily[39] from his post after a disappointing 2008–09 season and a slow start to the 2009–10 season.[40] Hecking's final match was a 1–1 draw against Mainz.[41] Hannover were tied for 14th place with 1899 Hoffenheim when Hecking left the club.[42] Hecking finished with a record of 39 wins, 30 draws, and 40 losses in 109 matches.[43]
