"Florian Kohfeldt currently has to pay things that he has not to answer for." (Jörg Schmadtke)

... His responsibility: "Of course that is also a planning error," Does Schmadtke clear. The decision to go the next step in the summer with Mark van Bommel on the coach bank, proved to be wrong quickly. "We tried to bring things forward, that did not work, that's why we made a change of coaching."

To push the coach the defeats in the shoes is a bit cheap in my eyes." Clearly the boss says: "Florian is not responsible for what's just happening." And Schmadtke is optimistic about the upcoming weeks and months with Kohfeldt: "We'll come out with him, because he realizes things clearly, he realizes them clearly, and because we, if we have the time we have, too be changed.
