CEO Thomas Hitzlsperger has taken a step towards his competitor Claus Vogt in the power struggle at the top of VfB Stuttgart. Hitzlsperger apologized for his recent attack in another open letter to the president. He is apparently sticking to his candidacy for his office.
“I am sincerely sorry that I chose words in my open letter to Claus Vogt that were inappropriate and that struck him personally,” wrote Hitzlsperger on Friday, emphasizing: “Far be it from me to hurt him as a person. I have sold out in tone. ” In his letter he only wanted to justify his motives for running for office.
Hitzlsperger wrote that he “underestimated” the force of his action as well as the fact that he attacked Vogt with it.
That is why he wanted to “apologize” to Vogt, as announced in a supervisory board meeting on Monday evening. With all differences in the matter “we should treat each other with respect among VfB players now and in the future”.
