VfL Wolfsburg have put an end to speculation surrounding Oliver Glasner's future as head coach of the club.


Glasner found himself in a war of words with Wolfsburg managing director Jörg Schmadtke after publicly expressing disappointment with the club's most recent transfer window ahead of last week's clash with Hoffenheim.

German media reported that the feud could lead to Glasner's departure, but Wolfsburg have now put the rumors to bed with an official statement.

"Managing director Jörg Schmadtke, sporting director Marcel Schäfer and coach Oliver Glasner held what they described as 'constructive talks' on Friday. The content of the conversation will be 'dealt with internally', and no further comments will be made in public," the statement read.

"In connection with the comments made by Oliver Glasner at the press conference before the game against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim, speculation had arisen in the media that the position of the coach was in question. However, this was never the subject of today's discussion."

Glasner was appointed Wolfsburg last summer and led the club to a 7th place finish in his first season at Volkswagen Arena.
