"Of course i hold schneider responsible," jordanian told the online edition of the "abendzeitung" on sunday. In the online edition of the "tz," the powerful investor also called for schneider’s removal in the upcoming presidential elections. "I would like to see the fans elect a new generation to power that is more focused on sports than on political power struggles."
Last friday, the former english national coach favored by ismaik had turned down the traditional munich club "after sufficient time for consideration. He did not justify his decision, he only pointed out "how fast-moving the professional soccer business is".
The installation of the 64-year-old at the german champion of 1966 should have formed a compromise between the club and investor ismaik. "We missed the moment to answer mr. Eriksson when he was enthusiastic. The matter has dragged on for a very long time for the reasons we all know," ismaik told the tz newspaper, referring to schneider, who is said to have resisted signing the 64-year-old until the very end.
It was only last tuesday that the "lowen" agreed on a compromise with investor ismaik after a tough battle. Accordingly, the three-year plan will be continued, and eriksson should also join the coaching team. Even before the agreement was reached, ismaik had publicly lashed out at president schneider, calling him an "old man" in an interview.
