We have decided that the area of competence here rests exclusively with the DFL Presidium. We absolutely do not want to draw up a summary document to give some advice to this DFL Presidium. This is our DFL Presidium, which we elected about twelve months ago. This Presidium has the great confidence of all the clubs present. I think we are well advised not to send impulse documents to other clubs in this republic, as has unfortunately happened to other clubs in the past. We do not state, I would like to make it very clear and explicit, that we are a G-15 here. We are not. We are always ready to expand this group where desired and needed. However, we also want to send an impulse, as it was so nicely called, of documents, to cease in this republic. Why: We didn’t break this solidarity pact, but we see it with the four Bundesliga clubs and ten second division clubs who have thrown their gloves into the ring here. With only one ulterior motive: that they want to pressure the DFL garrison to make big changes in the distribution of television money. We don’t want it! We have absolute confidence in the DFL Presidium to make the right, good and serious decisions. We are convinced of it. And we must not forget: this body was elected twelve months ago. He should have the trust and loyalty of everyone, and not just these 15 who were here today. “
