Mainz - club boss Stefan Hofmann was deeply hit two days after the players' strike at Bundesliga club FSV Mainz 05. "The behavior of the players not to train is a step that I personally would not have thought possible. This has shaken the entire club and is still having an effect," said the chairman of the 05er. After such an action, no one can "just go back to the agenda"; rather, it requires intensive processing.
In addition to the suspension of attacker Adam Szalai, the team would deal with issues that are "more complex than we expected," Hofmann was quoted on the club's website: "Therefore there are no simple and quick answers a great emotionality built up, which spontaneously discharged when Adam Szalai participated in the training. " The Rheinhessen want to prevent such measures in the future with "better internal communication".
"Issues cleared up": Szalai returns to training at Mainz
Adam Szalai (32) will definitely stay with 1. FSV Mainz 05 - and will return to the professional training after the international break. © imago images He stays in Mainz and will soon be back in training: Adam Szalai. The guesswork about attacker Szalai's future came to an end on Monday lunchtime: As the FSV announced in a press release, the Hungarian will return to team training for the Rheinhessen team in the coming week after the national player's surrender period.
Szalai exemption has "purely sporting reasons"
In the case of Szalai, not everything went well on the club side. "The decision to remove Adam Szalai from the team training of the professionals was made by the sports management and justified with a lack of sporting perspective. Admittedly, our first communication with Adam Szalai was misleading, this has now been made clear," said the 57-year-old.
Hofmann did not want to reveal what issues the team was still dealing with in addition to the Szalai case and the lack of reimbursement of the reduced salaries of the previous season. "It is the wish of the team council that the position they have expressed remains internal and is dealt with internally - and that no player expresses himself publicly about it. The internal signal was important to them, not the public one," said the top official.
