Sports director Jörg Schmadtke from VfL Wolfsburg has once again expressed his confidence in his coach Florian Kohfeldt and the responsibility of the players for the sporting crisis in table 15. remembered in the Bundesliga.
“I have the impression that this is all about the whereabouts of the manager and coach and that we are talking less about performance,” said the sporting director after the 0-2 defeat at RB Leipzig in a “Sky” -Interview.
“We talk less about who is down there in the end. That’s the way it is overall, it’s so common that in these difficult phases – we don’t need to beat around the bush, it’s an extremely modest situation It’s not pleasant for anyone – but as a player you go home relatively unmolested, do your training and leave again,” said Schmadtke. “It’s a bit different for coaches and management.”
The Wolfsburg have been without a win in eleven games in the Bundesliga and Champions League. Nevertheless, Schmadtke said: “The backing for Florian Kohfeldt is still just as stable as it was in the weeks before and yesterday immediately after the game.”
The next home game against bottom team SpVgg Greuther Fürth on February 6 is “a final for all of us,” said the 57-year-old. “Whether this is a final for Florian is something I would leave undecided and will be seen. But I don’t think it’s necessary for it to be a game of the utmost importance for us, also for the rest of the season talk around.”
