Thomas Hitzlsperger has been named as the sporting director at Bundesliga strugglers Stuttgart.

The former Aston Villa and Germany midfielder, 36, made 172 appearances for Stuttgart – winning the 2007 Bundesliga title with them.

He replaces Michael Reschke, who was sacked with the club sitting in the relegation play-off place.

Hitzlsperger, who also played for Chesterfield, West Ham and Everton, has been working as a pundit on German TV.

“I will do my upmost to concentrate our strengths so that we stay up and at the same time set a course for a successful future,” said Hitzlsperger, who will be working closely with head coach Markus Weinzierl.
