According to information from "Sky", sports director Fredi Bobic wants to leave Eintracht Frankfurt.
As the broadcaster reported on Monday, the 49-year-old has already entered the corresponding request internally. Negotiations are now to be conducted to terminate the contract. A concrete agreement has not yet been reached.
Bobic's contract in Frankfurt runs until 2023. According to the report, an exit could take place this summer.
The chairman of the supervisory board, Philip Holzer, only made vague comments when asked: "Fredi Bobic has a contract with Eintracht Frankfurt until 2023. We are in talks with him about the future direction of the so far very successful cooperation." For weeks there have been rumors about a possible farewell to Bobic, who is said to be very popular at Hertha BSC. Eintracht and their sports board would be well advised to provide clarity in the coming days. If the topic was simmering up to now, the unrest is there now. That shouldn't be a permanent condition just in view of the big sporting goals this season. In this situation, only frank words and a quick decision help - in whichever direction.
Most recently, sports director Bruno Hübner announced his departure on June 30th.
