Bremen (AP) – Werder Bremen’s football director Frank Baumann would have liked all clubs to attend a Bundesliga meeting scheduled for November 11 in Frankfurt.
“Given the current challenges and in the spirit of solidarity, we would have liked all Bundesliga clubs to be invited,” the 45-year-old is quoted by the “kicker”.
The meeting was an initiative of the top clubs Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig, Borussia Mönchengladbach and Bayer Leverkusen. All first division clubs except 1. FSV Mainz 05, FC Augsburg, Arminia Bielefeld and VfB Stuttgart must participate. So Werder is there too. In addition, the second division team Hamburger SV has been invited.
The representatives of the clubs want to discuss, among other things, who could be the successor to DFL director Christian Seifert, who will leave at the end of June 2022. The next steps in the Corona crisis and the current situation at the German Football Association should also be on the agenda. In addition, the distribution of television money should be discussed. Mainz, Stuttgart and Bielefeld, as well as clubs in the 2nd division, would try to redistribute television money.
