Kitzbühel (AP) – VfB CEO Thomas Hitzlsperger notices a positive development with coach Pellegrino Matarazzo.
“Of course there was more security, but that’s normal because he was not the head coach before,” said the 38-year-old of the German news agency.
Matarazzo had taken over the coaching position at VfB Stuttgart during the winter break with no experience as head coach and then led the team to promotion to the Bundesliga.
“When you’re new to the podium, at a club like ours, you observe first and be more careful,” said Hitzlsperger. ‘Now he knows the processes, he knows us. It may well become louder, much more specific. I think it’s a good thing. ‘
