The German Football Bund wants to re-occupy its top posts in the international committees at UEFA and FIFA according to consistent media reports.
Thus, the “Süddeutsche Zeitung” and the ZDF “Executive Committees Studio” report that DFL Supervisory Board Hans-Joachim Watzke for Rainer Koch should move to the UEFA Executive Committee and DFB President Bernd Neuendorf for Peter Peters to Fifa Council. The DFB was not to be achieved for comment.
On the previous day, the controversial and the DFB as Vice-President had already announced his premature withdrawal from the UEFA Executive Committee. In addition, he will no longer run for another term as President of the Bavarian Football Association at the end of June.
According to “ZDF” journalist Markus Harm, the planned restoration is now only on Koch, Peters and the international associations. Peters had significantly lost against Neuendorf in the election to the DFB President in March.
