Yesterday, German football club Bayern Munich announced their technical director Michael Reschke vacated his position. VfB Stuttgart, who announced parting ways with their sporting director Jan Schindelmeiser on Friday, recruited Reschke as their new sporting director.

59-year-old Reschke served as the technical director at the Bavarian club for the past three years, holding the position from July 2014. In an official statement issued by Stuttgart on Friday, the club's Supervisory Board made a "unanimous" decision to sack their sporting director Schindelmeiser. The board's chairman Wolfgang Dietrich said, "We regret having to take this step, but we were no longer convinced the implementation of our goals and achievement of agreed targets would be possible with the current personnel constellation. Ultimately, VfB Stuttgart takes top-priority and it is our absolute responsibility to make decisions for the good of the positive development of the club." ((de))German language: ‍Wir bedauern diesen Schritt, waren letztlich aber nicht mehr davon überzeugt, dass die Umsetzung unserer Ziele und der getroffenen Absprachen in der bisherigen Personalkonstellation zu erreichen sind. Letztlich steht der VfB Stuttgart über allem und es ist unsere absolute Pflicht, Entscheidungen ausschließlich im Sinne des Vereins und im Sinne einer positiven Entwicklung zu treffen.

Bayern Munich's CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge thanked Reschke for his work, saying, "On behalf of FC Bayern München, I’d like to thank him for the tremendous work he’s done for FC Bayern over the last three years. He’s made an important contribution to our success with his expertise, professionalism and network. I wish him all the best for the future." ((de))German language: ‍Ich bedanke mich im Namen des FC Bayern München für die hervorragende Arbeit, die Michael Reschke in den vergangenen drei Jahren für den FC Bayern geleistet hat. Er hat mit seinem Fachwissen, seiner Professionalität und seinem Netzwerk einen wichtigen Beitrag zum Erfolg des FC Bayern geleistet. Ich wünsche ihm alles Gute für seine Zukunft.

On Friday, Reschke requested termination of his contract with the German giants, which was valid for another year, until June 30, 2018.
