Table basement child FC St. Pauli urgently needs goals and points. Something for which Ewald Lienen (67) has not been responsible for around two and a half years. In the summer of 2017, he swapped his coaching job for that of technical director.
The contract with Lienen ends at the end of December. People at St. Pauli are satisfied with their work. “Ewald Lienen is an asset to FC St. Pauli. It would be a shame not to continue with him. But there must still be talks, “said President Oke Göttlich in early August in an interview with BILD.
These discussions have now ended successfully. According to BILD information, Lienen remains with the Kiez kickers despite the retirement age, and extends his contract.
The association did not want to comment on whether he would continue to call himself technical director. The previous area of responsibility of Lienen, which is organizationally docked in the marketing department at FC St. Pauli, at least partially corresponded to the requirements profile of a PR director.
Lienen, the bee boss. In addition to coaching youth coaching and talent development analysis, he was above all the advertising face for the transport of the society’s social issues.

Now it is clear: Bee boss Lienen continues to hum around the Millerntor.
