Sports director Sven Mislintat's expiring contract is currently the dominant topic at VfB Stuttgart. A VfB fan has therefore started a petition and is calling for the 49-year-old's contract to be extended soon.
Sven Mislintat's future at VfB Stuttgart seems more open than ever. The sports director's contract expires next summer, and talks about an extension have not yet been held. Mislintat is said to have a rather cool relationship with the new VfB boss Alexander Wehrle.
The mood between the two is unlikely to have really improved after Christian Gentner's surprising entry as head of the licensed player division.
Many VfB fans would obviously like that. There is even a petition circulating online that calls for the sporting director's contract to be extended. "Sven Mislintat has laid the foundations for a sporting (and financial) successful and sustainable future as part of the VfB team in recent years," says the initiator of the petition, VfB supporter Peter Weilacher.
The demand is clearly formulated: "The immediate start of talks to extend Sven Mislintat's contract, which take his ideas into account appropriately."
Around 6,000 signatures have been collected on the openpetition.de portal since Wednesday. There should be at least twice as many in total. Will Wehrle then react? According to reports, the CEO wants to start talks with Mislintat in the near future.
