Armin Veh will leave his role as FC Köln sporting director at the end of the season due to personal reasons, the club confirmed on Thursday morning.
“I’ve been in professional football for more than 30 years and had discussions and thoughts about the future, that I won’t plan further than the summer and don’t want to commit myself to such an important job,” said the 58-year-old.
“FC are a special club with special employees. Therefore, it’s also important for me that we have clarity. FC now have the ability to plan and enough time to find the right man to succeed me. I will do everything to make sure FC achieves our goals. We now must concentrate on remaining in the Bundesliga.”
