While Markus Weinzierl was still announcing his departure from FC Augsburg in front of the TV cameras, surprising the club bosses, Stefan Reuter was receiving numerous applications. The manager admits mistakes in retrospect.
Rapid applications after Weinzierl-Aus: While Markus Weinzierl was still announcing his departure from FC Augsburg live on TV, FCA boss Stefan Reuter’s smartphone rang. “The crazy thing was: Markus Weinzierl’s interview was still on TV, when the first inquiries and applications from consultants and also from the trainers themselves came on my cell phone,” reports Reuter in an interview with the “Augsburger Allgemeine”.
Short, compact, clear
Resignation live on television: Immediately after the last game of the season against Greuther Fürth (2-1), Weinzierl announced in interviews: “For me it is the right decision not to have any more talks.” Actually, talks with the Veriens bosses were after Game scheduled, so they were surprised accordingly.
Reuter admits mistakes: “I know that I don’t do everything right either, that there is also justified criticism. We weren’t always happy with coaching decisions.” A new head coach has now been found in Enrico Maaßen, who comes from BVB’s second team.
