Trainer Pellegrino Matarazzo from VfB Stuttgart, according to his own statement, does not worry about his future in the event of a new descent of the Swabians.
“I am currently not dealing with relegation, but full of relegation. There is still everything in it. What happens in summer happens in summer,” said the 44-year-old Italo-American when asked whether he
With the club would also go back to the second division.
“It’s not just me. I have a few bosses who also have something to decide,” said Matarazzo.
“I am fully here at VfB and pull my task 100 percent. But first of all the goal is to stay in the class.”
The coach’s contract in Stuttgart is still valid until June 30, 2024. VfB is on relegation rank 16 in the Bundesliga two match days before the end of the season.
Christian Streich (Trainer SC Freiburg): “I find it good that the one who has the most points at the end of 34 games is also masters and who unfortunately have to descend with the fewest points. I can understand the thoughts that you want to make the league more attractive. But I find it the way it is in this mode now, most just and with the greatest meaning force – but not the most exciting, that’s clear. “
Adi Hütter (coach Borussia Mönchengladbach): “We have already been in Austria for a while. There is the upper and lower play-off. Basically, you can rethink everything. On the other hand, I do not know if It’s fair if after 34 rounds perhaps the first against the fourth plays that the fourth, who may then be 15 points behind, still has the chance to become master. That’s on another sheet of paper. “
Oliver Kahn (Board Chief FC Bayern) in the Bundesliga: “I find it exciting to think about new models like play-offs for the Bundesliga. Also in the Champions League is handling a new format from 2024, from which we have a lot of promise. A mode in the Bundesliga with semi-finals and finals would mean tension for the fans. So it makes sense to play a thought. We are always open to Bayern for new ideas. “
Rudi Völler (CEO Bayer Leverkusen) in the Bundesliga: “A completely wrong approach. I’m absolutely against it.”
Hans-Joachim Watzke (Managing Director Borussia Dortmund and DFL Supervisory Board) in the Bundesliga: “That I was never a friend of play-offs, is known. But taking into account the respective overall situation with regard to the game modes no fundamental Give thought bans. “
Marcel Schäfer (sports director VFL Wolfsburg): “I find our system well as it is. It is the best after 34 matchdays determined, that’s fair and fair. But I can understand the train of thought. A changed mode could understand Increase the tension, the title chance for outsiders could rise. But in a Best-of-Seven mode, the FC Bayern would probably continue to prevail. With a play-off mode with just a game as in the NFL, a perfect one Season are made by only one defeat. And according to which system is decided who comes to the Champions League? The first four teams of the season or those who passed on to the play-offs? “
Sebastian Schindzielerz (sports board VfL Bochum) in the Bundesliga: “The VFL understands football as popular sports as he was and how he should be.”
