‘irritated’ by Wolfsburg rumor
Coach Fabian Hürzeler has joined FC St. Pauli. “I repeat now: I clearly told the club officials that I want to stay here in St. Pauli,” the 30-year-old said on Saturday after the 3-2 (2-1) victory. in the top match against SpVgg Greuther Fürth. When asked if this commitment applies to the 1st and 2nd leagues, he replied in the affirmative.
Hürzeler’s contract with the championship leader expires at the end of the season. An extension is being discussed, but negotiations have not officially concluded. According to media reports, there is a problem because Hürzeler would like to have an exit clause in his contract that would allow him to join a first division club.
FC St. Pauli, on the other hand, reportedly offered him a higher salary than any coach at the neighboring club before. The coach would not say how close he and the club were. “This is a question that is and must remain internal.”
Hürzeler to VfL Wolfsburg? St. Pauli coach takes a stand
Recently it was reported that VfL Wolfsburg were interested in Hürzeler as Niko Kovac’s successor and discussions had already taken place. “It left me extremely irritated and extremely annoyed,” said the coach, who equaled a second division record with 25 consecutive matches without defeat. “I certainly haven’t met any other clubs. My first contact is FC St. Pauli.”
Just over a year ago, Hürzeler was promoted from assistant coach to head coach of the team as successor to Timo Schultz (now 1. FC Köln), who was on leave. FCSP is clearly at the top of the rankings and is considered the favorite for promotion.
