It gives "a lot of good people in the CDU" by NRW.
At 1. FC Cologne, the clarification of the trainer question is obviously before. "We have a clear favorite," Sportschef Horst Heldt said on Monday, but did not want to "comment on a name".
Apparently, it is the Paderborner Steffen Baumgart, which is also courted by Hamburger SV. Baumgart explained the "Express", "that I will make a decision this week». Whether the FC holds the class or the HSV rises, is not crucial. "The league belonging to me plays a subordinate role," said Baumgart: "I'm concerned with the right project."

"We have not canceled him, but together noticed that cooperation does not make sense at the present time." So that Stöger announced this publicly, he has no problem. "We also decided together how we communicate in the case of demands."
