Still 6 points clear, that loss is nothing to worry about in my opinion! Keep it up!
Krimphove Promises To Take Magdeburg To Next Level08 November 2017
- Georg Krimphove wins landslide election to become new president
- Promises to help take Magdeburg into 2. Bundesliga
- Hopes to emulate Preussen Munster stay at MDCC Arena
Georg Krimphove was today unveiled as the new president of 1. FC Magdeburg, after a landslide election victory in which he ousted Peter Fechner. Having become a late candidate for the post, only declaring his interest in the presidency at the MDCC Arena at the end of September, Krimphove rallied and managed to receive a whopping 60% of the vote, with former president Fechner receiving only 15% of the remaining vote. Having previously resided over Magdeburg’s 3. Liga rivals Preussen Munster for over a year, Krimphove has added two of his former directors from Munster to the Magdeburg board with Gunther Frisch and Hannes Ditterle being appointed.
In his first interview as at the president of the current 3. Liga leaders, Krimphove went on to declare his intentions in the immediate and long term future for the club.
08.11.17, 14:00 Georg Krimphove: This is a huge honour for me to have been elected the president of this massive club. Obviously the club was moving in the right direction under Peter and with Christopher [Steegmann] in charge. Appointing Christopher has so far been a brilliant decision by the former regime and it is my intention to sign Christopher on to a longer contract so we can extend the good work he’s doing here. I’ve already spoken to Christopher about my intentions for this club and what he wants to achieve and how that matches to my ambitions and I can promise the fans now that it is my intention to help Christopher help Magdeburg to the next level and in the immediate future that means earning promotion to the 2. Bundesliga.
Upon Krimphove’s election, it is believed that the link and affiliation between FCM and 2. Bundesliga Eintracht Braunschweig has been brought to an end by the new president, who believes that a new direction is needed. Krimphove also confirmed that as part of his promise to help take Magdeburg to the next level that he would put the money towards helping the club to improve its training facilities, especially with the first team performing so well in the 3. Liga and promotion to the 2. Bundesliga looking likely as it stands. For the time being though, the priorities of Krimphove and Steegmann remain focused on earning promotion with FCM sitting top of the 3. Liga after 16 games going into the last international break of 2017.
