During a Saturday interview, former Frankfurt personnel boss made it clear that a potential €30 million purchase wasn't on the table.
"This personnel matter is, of course, always associated with my person," Bobic joked, "but you can cancel that."
The 49-year-old executive has had something of a busy media weekend already. On Friday, he spoke candidly about both incoming and outgoing transfers at his new club during a roundtable. Bobic disclosed that his "alte Dame" were currently weighing a purchase of Dutch winger Jurgen Ekkelenkamp.
In a rumored price range of €5-8 million, Ekkelenkamp would appear the more economical option.
