VfL Wolfsburg would like to continue on the path with coach Florian Kohfeldt in the next season. “Assume that we start the new season with Florian Kohfeldt,” said managing director Jörg Schmadtke after the 1-1 (1-0) win at VfB Stuttgart, which secured Lower Saxony’s relegation sky.
Kohfeldt added a little later that he was “firmly convinced” that he would be allowed to continue in Wolfsburg, “accordingly, Jörg’s statements were made. We have plans for next year!”
Schmadtke announced that after the “minimum goal” had been reached, he would have another conversation with Kohfeldt (39), whose contract runs until 2023. “Things are not the sole responsibility of Florian Kohfeldt, he led the team to where we wanted them to be in the end,” he said.
Overall, Schmadtke emphasized, the season was “not satisfactory, not good”: “That’s not our claim, we had completely different goals.”
