Tayfun Korkut holds talks with Eintracht Frankfurt

Tayfun Korkut has held talks with Eintracht Frankfurt over the vacant managerial position according to Kicker.

Korkut would be replacing Thomas Schaaf is the deal were to go ahead.

Schaaf resigned from his position despite a successful season after being accused by the clubs financial director Axel Hellmann of having lost the trust of his players.

“We had a great, spectacular season, particularly at home,” Schaaf was quoted as saying by Fox Sports.

“There were plenty of difficult situations we had to come through, particularly the many serious injuries which accompanied us throughout the entire campaign and beyond.

“[But] I cannot and will not accept the statements made in public and the way I and my work were being depicted, as well as the incredible and absolutely unacceptable accusations and insinuations that were being made to the media

“That is what has led to this parting of ways.”
