Squad: “There will no longer be a squad with 30 players at 1. FC Nürnberg. We have already given up five players with expiring contracts. We will now deal intensively with the contracts of Mühl, Margreitter and Behrens, which are also expiring. To do this, we will talk to all three players. These are open discussions that we will have now. In the end it is always the performance that decides. Georg, for example, has played well for me twice recently. In the end it has to be satisfactory for both sides. “

► Sports director: “I’ve always kept this option open to bring someone in. It’s not uncommon for two people at the top of the sports field to work together. We’re already in talks. First of all, it was about the clear ideas of what the area of ​​responsibility should look like. Now it’s about finding the right person. In future, squad planning will be the responsibility of the new sports director. He would head both the scouting department and the professional area in close consultation with the trainer. But I’m not going to break anything over my knee now. It’s about finding the one that we’re sure will fit. “

Season: “At the moment it’s all about the result. I would have preferred it if we had drawn in Karlsruhe and beaten Braunschweig. Then we would have one more point on Braunschweig. That’s the one way we have to go. And yet we have to succeed in ensuring that we can and must develop ourselves further in terms of football. “
