SC Paderborn has separated from its sports director Martin Przondziono. The bottom of the table in the soccer Bundesliga cited “different views on further development” as the reason. As the climber announced on his website, Fabian Wohlgemuth will take over on May 1. Until last autumn Wohlgemuth worked for the second division club Holstein Kiel.
“From our point of view, the forced break is a good opportunity to bring about the change in sports management that is already being sought,” said Elmar Volkmann, the chairman of the SCP economic council, explaining the “unanimous” decision to separate Przondziono, who succeeded at the beginning of the season Markus Krösche had switched to RB Leipzig.
Wohlgemuth, who had only terminated his contract with Holstein Kiel on Monday afternoon, signed in Paderborn until June 30, 2022. The Berlin native should “promote the sporting development of the club based on the existing game philosophy”.
Before his time in Kiel, Wohlgemuth had headed the VfL Wolfsburg youth performance center. Volkmann explained that he was the “preferred candidate” for the SCP, “because he has many qualities that are central to us. He played a similarly offensive style in Kiel as we do, likes to work with young players and is very well connected in football Germany . “
