DFB President Fritz Keller has ruled out his own resignation in view of the differences with General Secretary Friedrich Curtius. “I can only speak for myself: I’m not stepping back,” said Keller in an interview with “Welt am Sonntag” and emphasized: “I’m not a person who gives up.”
In January, after weeks of disputes, Keller and Curtius agreed to continue running the association together. “I have certain values and expectations: trust, open words, hard work, competence, transparency. On this basis I can work with anyone. You don’t have to cultivate friendship in your job, but have goals that you work on with passion every day,” emphasized Basement, cellar. The re have been people who have changed, said the DFB boss: “My doors are always open.”
The Wikipedia entry by General Secretary Friedrich Curtius recently caused controversy. It became known that the DFB had commissioned a service provider to revise or expand the entry. “Does that surprise you when I also have a problem with it? This process is also being investigated,” said Keller.
