Stanislawski could depart in summer
St Pauli coach Holger Stanislawski could leave the club in the summer since talks over a new deal appear to have stalled.
The 41-year-old has been in charge of the Hamburg suburban side since 2006 and still has a contract until 2012, but a report in the Bild newspaper today claims he can leave the club this coming summer for just €0.25m.
And Stanislawski admits anything could happen at the end of the season. "I will give all I have here until the summer, and then we will see what happens," he said.
"As soon as the season is over, there will be lots and lots of time to discuss whether I will still be coach here next season, but right now the most important date of the year is 1 April, which is when we play Schalke," he added in the Hamburger Morgenpost newspaper.
Stanislawski has recently been linked with the coaching vacancies in Bayer Leverkusen and Schalke, as well as a move across the city to local rivals Hamburg.
His achievements with St Pauli have not gone unnoticed, which is why the club is already working on an alternative should he be snapped up by a bigger club. "We do have a plan B," admitted the club's director of sport Helmut Schulte.
