Krösche and Hinteregger comment on Kostic situation: "It's the wrong way."

After a training boycott on Friday, Serbian star winger Filip Kostic's future in the Bundesliga remains up in the air. New SGE sporting director Markus Krösche remained diplomatic when questioned about the matter by his Sky Germany interviewer on Saturday.


"Filip is a truly good lad," Krösche emphasized before kickoff, "Sometimes people make mistakes. I don't know what motivated him to act in this way, but it's definitely the wrong way."

An editorial appearing on the online pages of Germany's preeminent footballing publication this morning called for Krösche to refuse a transfer for Kostic, even going so far as to bench him for the remainder of the "Hin-runde". Kostic's actions at this point in the transfer window place his club in a bad negotiating position.

Krösche stressed that there was "no price tag at all" for Kostic, suggesting that he entertained no thoughts of completing a transfer with Lazio. The man wearing the captain's armband on Saturday chided his interviewer for bringing up the topic.

"Filip is an exceptional player who has given us so much," Martin Hinteregger said after the match, "Don't blow this out of proportion. Don't get bent out of shape. [Reintegrating him into the team] would be the smallest of small problems."
