As a salvation brawer, Bobic had been recognized as a Magaths managing director in the summer. The ex-national player emphasized that he need time. Two transfer windows Later, the fans also see that the 50-year-old, which currently acts brooding, can not produce a squad for upscale claims.
Sven Mislint vaccinated the VfB a new philosophy. The new way plans to successfully play football with young players and then sell these talents for a lot of money. Rethinking is needed to consolidate the club. From ex-coach Armin Veh, Mislinat was accused of holding a "one-man show".
