Dieter Hoeness, the current general manager of Bundesliga champions, VFL Wolfsburg, is on a mission to recruit the best brains to assist him in Wolfsburg. He did not look too far for capable hands. He is recruiting staff from his former club, Hertha BSC. His recruitment drive makes Hertha supporters wonder if it is revenge in disguise.
Hoeness, was unceremoniously relieved of his duties at Hertha BSC, last summer after a bitter fallout with Hertha president,Werner Gegenbauer and Lucien Favre,the former manager.
Hertha chief scout,Rudi Wojtowicz, is highly rumored to be heading to Wolfsburg. Wojtowicz, is credited to be the brain behind the signing of Andrey Voronin, Gojko Kacar,Joe Simunic and Marko Pantelic to Hertha.
Jochen Sauer, a former lawyer for Hertha might also join Hoeness in Wolfsburg.
Since Hoeness’s exit, Hertha is struggling to remain relevant in Bundesliga.
If Hertha is relegated to the second division, Hoeness is already contemplating the services of Gojko Kacar and Arne Friedrich for Wolfsburg.
