Cologne (SID) – The search for a new national football coach is entering the crucial stage in the Austrian Football Association (ÖFB). Athletic director Peter Schoettle submitted an interim report to the Executive Committee on Thursday. “A large part of the initial talks with potential candidates have taken place,” Schoettle told the Austrian Football Association. “Now it is about nominating exactly who will go to the next round.”
Ex-Cologne and Dortmund coach Peter Stoeger (56) was among those addressed. He clearly expressed his interest. “I made it clear that if he wanted it, the job would be fun for me,” the pay-TV expert said recently. “If not, I’ll have fun with Sky.” “For 30 years, we’ve been busy as players. We’ve been busy as competing coaches,” said Schoettle, knowing each other.
Among the former professional candidates in the Bundesliga are Andreas Herzog (53) and Marcus Schöpp (48). The new head of the Red, White and Red team and successor to former German player Franco Foda is supposed to know by April 29 at the latest.
“Now the range of candidates is being narrowed down, with whom there are intense discussions about the content and economic criteria,” said the Austrian-German Confederation. As a result of this process, Schöttel will present its proposal to ÖFB President Gerhard Milic within the next 14 days.
