It is reported that there will be VfL Wolfsburg’s return to training on Thursday but Wolfsburg themselves did not give any pronouncements or eye-catching headlines concerning those pronouncements. Wolfsburg is the last Bundesliga club to reunite and this news is still hot at the Volkswagen Arena. The process to reunite seems too slow that is caused by the lack of international starts who have to return over the course next week. Both coach Dieter Hecking and sporting director Klaus Allofs tried their best to make the plan into reality. Their meticulous, unflustered and hard-working natures that create actions speak louder than words.
The famous adage from a throwback pair, Hecking and Allofs certainly held true in 2014/15. Both of them quietly crafted one of the most memorable seasons in the club’s history. The Wolfsburg placed the second in the Bundesliga with great home record. Thanks to that position, the club can run to the UEFA Europa League quarter-finals and the most impressive thing is their ability to lift their first DFB Cup. As Allofs stated, the only aim of the club for the upcoming campaign is to repeat last year’s performances. He expected the club to finish in the top three or four so they can make an improvement.
Both downplaying and understatement seem like a part of Allofs’ style although there is one worth statement that should be noticed from him. He said that they were undeniably can close the gap on FC Bayern Munchen at the top. Their squad is very good at putting together in every position and they were very ready to take on the challenge. The Wolves are ready to win the next match with the likes of Andre Schurrle, Kevin De Bruyne, Ricardo Rodriguez, Luiz Gustavo, and the new signing Max Kruse.
The three important figures: Hecking, Allofs, and Co will make sure themselves against the Bayern yardstick. A mouthwatering clash will be welcome by Wolfsburg on 1 August to the Volkswagen Arena for the 2015 Supercup. To start their defense of the DFB Cup, the Wolves travel to third-division outfit Stuttgarter Kickers before kicking off the new Bundesliga campaign at home to Eintracht Frankfurt on 15 August. The club will also return to the UEFA Champions League for the first time since the last time they joined in 2009/10. In order to win over Borussia Dortmund and FC Schalke 04 under their new management, the Wolves have no option but to give their best to maintain their new status as primary challengers to Bayern’s hegemony.
