Klaus Allofs has left his post as Werder Bremen sporting director to move to Wolfsburg.
Allofs will take up a similar role at the Volkswagen Arena, bringing to an end a 13-year stint at Werder Bremen.
The 55-year-old ended his playing career at Werder Bremen, hanging up his boots with the club in 1993.
Allofs enjoyed a successful career as a striker, making 56 international appearances for West Germany.
He had a spell coaching Fortuna Dusseldorf, but swapped the dugout for the boardroom in 1999 when he joined Werder Bremen as sporting director.
Allofs arrives at a Wolfsburg side which have had a less than perfect start to the season.
Manager Felix Magath parted company with the Wolves earlier this season, due to poor results.
