VfB Stuttgart: Sven Mislintat also has his say

Most recently, sports director Sven Mislintat also commented on the state of affairs.

“You can’t say exactly how this is developing. You listen to what the lawyers tell you, what is reflected back from the personal conversations that Ata has with the family and his lawyer. But of course I won’t say anything about that because it is an ongoing process,” said the 49-year-old.

It is still unclear whether VfB Stuttgart will sign a replacement for Karazor. “I would like to answer that as if Ata were injured. If Ata had an injury, we would also deal with it internally, so we are calm and relaxed there,” emphasized Mislintat.
