The top of the DFB is seething. An external effect that Wolfsburg’s sports director Jörg Schmadtke does not like – and which, according to him, could damage the industry.
Sports director Jörg Schmadtke from VfL Wolfsburg has criticized the power struggle and the external impact of the German Football Association (DFB). “Overall, the picture is not good. That is also not good for German football,” said the Bundesliga club’s sports director on Saturday evening in the ZDF’s “current sports studio”.
“The DFB is currently playing a very unfortunate role. But the DFB is also a difficult construct. There are the sovereigns, there is the national team”: They are “very different interests”.
Schmadtke also disappointed with DFL
DFB President Fritz Keller and DFB General Secretary Friedrich Curtius had declared the day before, after a presidium meeting of several hours, that they wanted to undertake “one last joint attempt” to work together. Schmadtke knows Keller from his active time at SC Freiburg and says he appreciates the DFB boss very much.
However, the experienced manager also criticized the German Football League (DFL) for the fact that their break with Curtius became public exactly one day before the meeting of the executive committee of the DFB.
