Posted on May 13, 2011


COLOGNE Sporting Director Volker Finke has confirmed early talks with FC Copenhagen head coach Stale Solbakken, according to KICKER.

Current head coach Frank Schaefer will leave his post at RheinEnergieStadion after Saturday’s match with FC Schalke and Finke is hoping to confirm the replacement as quickly as possible.

Finke told KICKER: “I can not deny that they have taken me with him. I have led an interesting conversation with Solbakken already.”

43-year-old Solbakken has enjoyed a successful season with the Danish champions securing another league title this season and leading his side in to the knockout rounds of the UEFA Champions League for the first time.

Finke is keen to have the new coach appointed in the coming weeks, he added: “It should go as quickly as possible. The new coaches planning the squad for the coming season will be involved”
