Schmadtke went so far as to suggest that Stuttgart were deliberately leaking information to the press in order to depress Guilavogui's value. The veteran German footballing administrator initially didn't rule out a transfer, but groused that Stuttgart were talking to the German footballing media instead of him. Such a grievance isn't uncommon from the seasoned managing director.
The Wolfsburger Allgemeine Zeitung, with whom Schmadtke initially aired this grievance, now cites internal sources to claim that Schmadtke will not be entertaining any offers at all. According to a report appearing today, Schmadtke and the front office believe Guilavogui to be essential to their sporting goals this season. Schmadtke, it is noted, won't be moved on the matter.
