MUNICH - Struggling first division German football club 1860 Munich announced Monday the appointment of Gerald Vanenburg as the team's new coach, replacing Falko Goetz.

Vanenburg, 40, played between 1998 and 2000 for the Munich team, appearing in 43 matches and scoring two goals.

The Dutchman was called on after the club sacked Goetz on Saturday after Munich's 2-1 home loss against Hamburger SV. The loss left 1860 only one point clear of the relegation zone with five matches left in the season.

Vanenburg will have to do without star striker Benjamin Lauth, who broke his left foot in Saturday's match and will be out for several weeks.
