It was inevitable that news of Ralf Minge's outburst would reach the ears of Christian Schäfer. It took no more than a day, as Robert Schäfer informed the newly appointed manager. The news came as a shock to Christian, but he was not overly disappointed. He had expected some amount of disenchantment to affect people within the club, whether they be fans, players or staff, and did not allow the news to put him down.
Christian was a man of action and within minutes of hearing of Ralf's outrage, he had left his house and was making his way to Ralf's residence. He wasn't angry or sad, but he was not hopeful of swaying Ralf. He knew that he would have to make an incredible offer in order to bring one of Dresden's greatest ever player on his side. As he reached Ralf's house, he nervously knocked on the door and nodded anxiously as Ralf opened the door and allowed him in.
"Ralf, Robert told me of your outburst."
"I'm sorry that you had to hear about it, but you don't have any real managerial experience and that bothers me. It's not your fault at all, it's the fault of the club. With all due respect, there were far better applicants than you."
"I know I lack experience, but I'll never get any if I keep getting turned down for the same reason. I know that Dynamo is a massive club, being a fan myself. I'm not surprised that there are people upset with my appointment, I expected that. But I am so proud to be the manager of such a fantastic team and I will work my damn hardest for the club. But I need the support of the rest of the club to help me, I hope you understand that."
"Christian, I understand that loud and clear. But I just don't see how this could work."
"I want you in my team, Ralf. You're a very important part of this football club, and the fans adore you. If you want to see this club succeed, then I have a proposition for you. Will you be my assistant manager? I need a guy with your experience and knowledge of the football club helping me to achieve our goals."
"That is a generous offer, but I must refuse. I just can't work with an inexperienced manager, sorry."
"I'm sad to hear that. What do you plan on doing, if I may ask?"
"I think I'll have to leave the club, sorry Christian."
"So am I."
