Wolfsburg’s managing director Jörg Schmadtke has responded to the taunts of Cologne striker Anthony Modeste after VfL’s 3-2 defeat against FC. In addition, the 57-year-old got his club in the mood for the relegation battle.
“He can say that, I’m interested and not worried about it,” said Schmadtke at the kicker in relation to what Modeste said. The Cologne attacker had previously allowed himself a verbal swipe at the VfL boss.
“I’m happy because we won against Jörg Schmadtke’s team. You always meet twice in life. It’s nice to send Wolfsburg into crisis,” said Modeste after his brace against Wolves. Background: According to the French, Schmadtke was primarily responsible for his unwanted move from Cologne to China at the time.
Rather, Schmadtke was concerned about Wolfsburg’s current sporting downturn. “The situation is not good. Of course we have to look down and be careful that it doesn’t get any more dangerous,” said the 57-year-old.
After a strong start to the season, Wolfsburg is now in the lower half of the Bundesliga table after the fifth winless league game in a row. With 20 points after 16 games you lag behind in eleventh place. Just a few weeks ago, Florian Kohfeldt took over the coaching position from Mark van Bommel, who had previously been dismissed.
