Jess Thorup or Alfred Schreuder - one of these two candidates will be the new coach of VfB Stuttgart.
At the weekend, Danish media reported that Jess Thorup was about to be hired by VfB. The Dane, who was sacked at FC Copenhagen a month ago, is said to have "made a convincing appearance" in the talks with Sven Mislintat and Alexander Wehrle, according to the image - but the Swabians are still waiting for the deal to be completed. Because: There is a second candidate.
The central question is, of course, whether Ajax would let Schreuder go so quickly - and whether the coach would swap his job in Amsterdam, where titles and international business are the order of the day, for the coaching bench in Stuttgart. If not, Thorup should win.
According to the picture, a decision can only be expected after the cup game on Wednesday, possibly only after the following Bundesliga game against BVB.
