Dietmar Hopp rages at the general meeting: unacceptable, even embarrassing
Dietmar Hopp, patron from 1899 Hoffenheim, found clear words at the general meeting of the Kraichgauer for the disappointing end of the season of the association and underpinned the claim to want to play with TSG International.
“The 0: 0 against Fürth, that was unexcused. The last three games were unacceptable, the 1: 5 in Mönchengladbach even embarrassed,” said Hopp about the last appearances of the TSG in the Bundesliga.
For a long time the team was on Champions League course, but after nine winless games in the last nine games of the season, the international places were completely missed and ended up in 9th place.
According to Hopp, missing the Europa League costs around 20 million euros, and the Champions League even “much, much more”. Coach Sebastian Hoeneß had to go to the disappointing end of the season as a consequence.
“I think there is no doubt that we had to draw consequences on the coaching position and beyond,” said Hopp to make Hoeneß go.
