No one in Frankfurt likes the fact that ex-sports director Fredi Bobic (49) is digging for Filip Kostic (28). One is particularly annoyed: Dragoslav “Stepi” Stepanovic (72).
The cult trainer to BILD: “I only have one message for Bobic: ‘Keep your hands off our players!’ There are millions of others in the world that he is happy to bring. “
Kostic is at the top of the wish list at Hertha, Bobic wants to lure the Serbian wing star to Berlin with a million dollar contract (BILD reported).
Stepanovic: “Of course money could be an incentive for Filip, but what does he want in Berlin? They don’t play internationally and whether the path from being relegated to the top will lead so quickly is also questionable. “
And further: “He is now 28, at some point his strength will diminish, then he can no longer march up and down the line like that. In Frankfurt he is sometimes forgiven for weaker games. If he comes to a new club, he first has to earn this standing. “
But actually he is confident that Kostic will stay with Eintracht. Especially since he knows that his compatriot is enthusiastic about the new coach Oliver Glasner.
Stepi: “I think if Eintracht offered him a long-term contract, perhaps with an option for the future after his career, he would stay here.”
