He will let himself be time in his search for a new employer, he stressed, “I will not go immediately to another club. First of all, I have to solve myself professionally from VfB, build emotionally a little distance. It would feel wrong, to sign somewhere else in two weeks. That’s not – and then that would be what I say now, too. “

Hitzlsperger is officially on the VfB until March 31st in office, the business has already handed over the 39-year-old to his successor Alexander Wehrle. Wehrle had been working as a Financial Chef at the League Ligacon 1st FC Cologne and asked for a release.
