At the third division soccer team 1. FC Kaiserslautern there is great confusion about the position of head coach Marco Antwerpen.

Kaiserslautern – As several media reports, a possible replacement of the 50-year-old was discussed before the relegation games against Dynamo Dresden (May 20 and 24). So far there has been no decision or statement from the four-time German champions. The coach himself does not want to know anything about a separation and expects to stay in office. “I assume so,” he told the “Rheinpfalz”.

Ex-national player and 2014 world champion Miroslav Klose is also being traded as a possible successor to Antwerp. The “Express” had reported that the name of Klose had made the rounds on the sidelines of the Palatinate’s 2-0 defeat at Viktoria Köln. The regional investor group, which holds 33 percent of the shares in the FCK corporation, is said to want to install Klose as an Antwerp replacement. The club has also kept a low profile on this since then.

The “Bild-Zeitung” reports that the idea of ​​hiring Klose as a coach was said to have been rejected on Monday. A loose contact is said to have existed at the end of April. Antwerp’s adviser Stefan Backs also criticized the club’s management: “If all of this is true, it’s amazing, to say the least, how you deal with a coach who not only saved Lautern from relegation, which was believed to be safe, but then also had the most successful third division season in the club let history play. And this discussion immediately before the promotion games does not exactly show professionalism,” said Backs at Sport1. dpa
