Bell will begin the new role on Monday, February 13 and fills the vacancy left by Sue Ronan who stepped down after six years. The English native, who has been in Germany since 1982, is due to depart SC Sand in the Frauen Bundesliga shortly, and is excited to get started.

Following a playing career with FSV Mainz 05, Bell moved into coaching where he has worked in both the men’s and women’s game over the last three decades, learning from the likes of current Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp and enjoying a lot of success. In 2015, Bell guided FFC Frankfurt to glory in the UEFA Women’s Champions League.
