Augsburg: Side Bolt for Union President Zingler
The solid financial figures, the managing director Michael Ströll announced at the General Assembly on Tuesday, witnesses from the point of view of Klubboss Klaus Hofmann from the stability of FC Augsburg in times of the pandemic. Despite losses, the FCA continues to have a positive equity of 53 million euros, so Hofmann. "Our equity base did not allow. In addition to Bavaria and Freiburg, no other association can claim." For the future of the club, he therefore do not worry, "We do not need Corona again, but we would survive a second corona."
Explaining the NWSL scandal sending shockwaves across women's pro soccer
The fallout continues from The Athletic's report detailing allegations of sexual misconduct and harassment in the National Women's Soccer League.The revelations have resulted in a coach's termination, the resignation of the league's commissioner, an owner resigning as CEO of his club, other owners penning open letters, a team GM placed on administrative leave, and the opening of several investigations by different governing bodies as the women's soccer community processes the fallout and begins to outline a path forward.
sporty, however, the FCA presented anything but stable in the past years. The Board of Directors admits mistakes: "If you had five coaches in five years, you certainly did not do everything right." The uninterrupted belonging to the Bundesliga for eleven years was "an incredible success," said Hofmann. "I also understand the voices that accuse us that the development stagnates. I can recognize both sides of the medal. So really nice is our football in the last two and a half to three years."
criticism of ex-coaches Martin Schmidt and Heiko Gorgeous
Hofmann practiced significant criticism of playful development among the ex-coach Martin Schmidt and Heiko Gorgeous: "We've been systematically balanced football matching for two years and have to get used it again." Despite the bad start of the season, Hofmann is convinced that this will succeed with Markus Weinzierl: "I am pronounced glad that Markus Weinzierl is back here, even if it does not show the table yet." Weinzierl, who shaped a successful era at the FCA from 2012 to 2016, have "that made in the past, he will create now".
Where Carli Lloyd ranks on the list of best U.S. women's soccer players in history
How does Lloyd's legendary career compare to the other greats in the pantheon of the U.S. women's national team?So she will play at Children’s Mercy Park across the Missouri border in Kansas City, and at Allianz Field in Saint Paul for the occasion, so that those who’ve followed her USWNT career for well more than a decade can say thank you and can say they, too, saw one of the greatest ever in the sport of soccer perform in person.
In addition, Hofmann defended the entry of US investor David Blitzer in his investors GmbH, with which he holds 99 percent of the shares in the outline KGaA. With a flasher as a minority shareholder, the FCA "in a crisis fall clearly robust" is set up. The decision-making in his investors GmbH is only with him, stressed Hofmann. Nothing changed to the possession and vote in the KGaA, 50 + 1 was still aware of in Augsburg. Only the delayed communication of the process is "in retrospect wrong".
Page Bolt for Union President Zingler
At the end of September, Union Berlin's President Dirk Zingler had criticized the structures at the FCA ("Augsburg is the small RB for me"). Hofmann mentioned Zingler not namely, but distributed a page. He wanted to "clean up with the nonsense sometimes spreading by interested side," he said, later added, this is "directed to one or the other Schlabeier colleagues from the Bundesliga, who says he talks about the FC Augsburg got to".
Of the 845 voting members, the Executive Board was relieved by Hofmann and the Supervisory Board with a large majority. Even with the new election of four members of the Supervisory Board, the previous councilors were clearly due to two new candidates from the active fans scene, which wanted to use more discourse within the association. A vote that is to be supported as support for Hofmann's price - even if the debates had to speak a few critical votes at late-hour.
