Lothar Matthäus has criticized the future BVB sports director Sebastian Kehl for his unclear statements about coach Marco Rose.
“Something like that shouldn’t happen to him. That was negligent and naïve,” wrote the record national player in his sky-Column.
For Matthäus Kehl was “simply too honest for a moment”. Especially against the background that it is known “that BVB advisor Matthias Sammer is a big fan of Edin Terzic, sees Rose critically and Boss Watzke gives a lot to Sammer’s judgement”. Kehl therefore “didn’t just utter the sentence by accident. There’s a lot of truth in it,” said Matthäus.
Kehl failed to make a clear commitment to Rose during the Dortmund game at SpVgg Greuther Fürth (3-1) on Saturday.
When asked whether Rose will be the BVB coach in the coming season, Kehl said sky: “I assume so today.” A day later, Kehl specified his statements. “I can clearly say that I phrased it very poorly and without any great intention,” said Kehl on Sunday in the Sport1 double pass.
“Backing looks different and Kehl knows that and knew that too when he answered. He’s clever, clever and knows the business very well. It’s not for nothing that the bosses have entrusted him with this post. It should be that every word counts in this business not be new to him,” wrote Matthew.
