Korkut was appointed manager of Hannover in January 2014 and helped the side to avoid relegation last season.

Hannover are back in a relegation battle against this season and Michael Frontzeck has taken over as head coach.

The young coach became the first Turkish international to take over a Bundesliga club when he was appointed Hannover manager last season.

It was the first senior coaching job for the former Fenerbahçe midfielder who previously worked as a youth team coach at Real Sociedad, Hoffenheim and VfB Stuttgart.
