Meeske new Managing Director of VfL Wolfsburg

The previous financial board of 1. FC Nuremberg, Michael Meeske, rises at 1st. In November, as the Lower Saxons officially confirmed, VfL Wolfsburg became managing director of the Bundesliga. Already the day before, the Franks had announced Meeskes resignation.

The 46-year-old Oldenburger had replaced the VfL Clubchef Wolfgang Hotze (66), who had postponed his resignation on several occasions due to the recent search for new directors. It was only in the summer that the VW Club had re-filled the post of Sports Manager with Jorg Schmadtke.

This post had been vacant since the end of Klaus Allofs at the end of 2016. It is still unclear whether Schmadtke will become spokesman for management in the future. There are also thoughts of not giving up this office.

Meeske already worked at Hannover 96 and FC St. Pauli before his station in Nuremberg. The social economist is a member of the Bureau of the German Football League (DFL) and the Board of the German Football Federation (DFB).
