KFC Uerdingen boss Ponomarev: “Also sell for one euro” – Großkreutz “completely wrong”

KFC game operations continue

The appointment of an insolvency administrator for the KFC Uerdingen has no effect on the game, as the club emphasized on Wednesday. However, things are not getting any quieter after the latest tirades by controversial, outgoing investor Mikhail Ponomarev. The Russian spoke up again in the “Sport Bild” to defend himself, as he explained according to the article. He criticized the team last season, particularly highlighted Kevin Großkreutz on the subject of salary, criticized the lack of fans and explained the difficult finances. He said: “Now I am tired”.

In the conversation, Ponomarev justified his withdrawal as financier of the former Bundesliga club. Too many disappointments would have robbed him of the necessary “confidence and power”. Even the “biggest and best squad” last season did not bring promotion. And what about the fans? “We have to be honest,” Ponomarev stated, “our fan base has been destroyed. 30 years ago the stadium was sold out, so young fans came to the KFC. ”Today, however,“ there are 4,000 spectators for important games. I’m shocked. “

The biggest problem, however, is the infrastructure, explained Ponomarev. “The training conditions are catastrophic. Training is not possible in winter. I was ashamed of the team for that. But modernization is not even an issue for the city of Krefeld. “

Buyer search at KFC Uerdingen – Ponomarev sells “also for one euro”

In December, Ponomarev had almost come to an agreement with a new investor. The deal fell through, but the resigned sponsor is certain that he will soon come to a positive conclusion “with someone else”.

To the KFC forum
He did not give further details about the failure of the previous one and the prospect of the new prospect. But it doesn’t seem to go smoothly with the “other” either, at least Ponomarev let out a certain despair when he named a possible price.

“The club urgently needs a new investor and money to save it,” said Ponomarev. “So the answer is: I’ll sell my shares in the club for one euro.” Because: Without a new investor, the KFC would probably be finished. “Then the club won’t get a license, I’m afraid. I will put an obligation in the contract with the new owner that he has to ensure that the club receives the license. “

Although we shouldn’t lose sight of the fact that professional football in Uerdingen has always only been possible thanks to a generous inflow of external funds that goes beyond normal sponsorship.
Without the subsidy from Bayer, Uerdingen would never have ended up in professional football permanently. …

Ponomarev calculates KFC finances – million minus “I compensated”

In order to defend against criticism of the club’s finances, Ponomarev finally calculated the high expenses and low income of the club. You need a budget of 5 million euros for a good third division squad alone. Other costs such as stadium rental and Co. amounted to an additional 3 million euros.

However, these 8 million euros would only be compared to 3 million euros in income. Only 700,000 euros because of the low number of visitors, around one million TV money and one million sponsorship income. The minus of 5 million euros “I have more or less always balanced out for three years. That is often forgotten, ”explained Ponomarev. For him it is clear that you have to “just step up”. Then “a lot will be easier”.

Ponomarev exercises player criticism with salary details – “Let’s take Großkreutz”

While he then criticized the Düsseldorf stadium company for “bad style” and “outrageous behavior” – the operators of Fortuna’s Arena had not released the KFC from the no longer manageable lease and finally banned the club from the stadium – Ponomarev complained also lack of accommodating the players in terms of salary.

“Take Kevin Großkreutz as an example. On the one hand, we had verbally agreed with him before the season that his monthly salary would be reduced from 50,000 to 26,000 euros. Suddenly he didn’t want to know anything about it, ”explained Ponomarev. “We also had our reasons why we didn’t pay him any more.” He emphasized that “all the coaches” had told him “that Großkreutz would behave completely wrong internally. But the main problem was: he didn’t want to play football anymore. Just his fitness level – it was just a little better than mine. ”After leaving Uerdingen, Großkreutz switched to amateur football at Bövinghausen.

Ponomarev will not say goodbye to professional football after leaving Uerdingen, said the businessman. Despite the bad experience at KFC – “no matter what I do, I am criticized for (…) I could have signed Cristiano Ronaldo, it would have been wrong” – Ponomarev said: “I still have ambitions in football. It wasn’t that yet. “

KFC Uerdingen: Game operations continue – talks are still pending

“Disposals of the debtor over objects of their assets are only effective with the consent of the preliminary insolvency administrator,” it said on Tuesday in a public notice of the court. Club boss Ponomarev had announced his retirement at the end of the season in early December. The license for the 3rd division must be applied for by March 1st.

Where the KFC will soon play its home games – Ponomarev: “Definitely not in Düsseldorf anymore” – is unclear. “We are currently negotiating with other clubs and will find a solution,” announced Ponomarev. For the third season in a row, the KFC has not played its home games in its home stadium, which is in need of renovation.
