New DFL Managing Dir Andreas Rettig Wants To Focus On Organization's Core Business
Newly-appointed German Football League (DFL) Managing Dir Andreas Rettig "wants to think outside the box in his new position," according to DER WESTEN. One of Rettig's goals is "the improvement of physical education in Germany's schools as well as to put the core business back into the spotlight." Rettig said, "I wish, we would get more recognition because of the sport, not only as a marking organization." The former GM of SC Freiburg, 1. FC Cologne and FC Augsburg said that he "wants to make sure the pressure to perform in youth football will be reduced." Rettig succeeded Holger Hieronymus on Tuesday and is, after DFL President Reinhard Rauball and Exec Board Chair Christian Seifert, the "new strong man at the DFL" (DER WESTEN, 1/3).
