Mainz 05 coach Martin Schmidt is adamant that the club’s director of sport Christian Heidel will not be leaving come the end of the season.
Schalke 04 have offered Heidel a contract but Heidel has made it clear that he will see out the remaining 18 months of his contract at Mainz.
“He’s going to stay. I cannot see a single sign saying that he should change,” said Schmidt.
“I think it’s all just a storm in a tea cup. There is no need to look because nobody is going anywhere.
“There is no scouting for a new director of sport going on here.”
