Matthäus not convinced of Racing's economy

Lothar Matthäus as football player during the 1990 World Cup in Italy.

Former captain of the German national team, Lothar Matthäus, could have rejected Argentne Racing Club's offer to become their new coach by sending a text message to a club's manager, reported the German tabloid Bild.

Racing's representatives are disappointed by Matthäus' attitude as they claim to have reached all conditions requested by the former fussballer star to settle down in Argentina.

Juan Cobián, a Racing's assistant who acted as middle-man and negotiated Matthäus arrival declared to the German Press that "we are all surprised and disappointed at the club. Last night, we received this text message from Matthäus saying that he would pass the offer, the whole situation is nothing but ridiculous."

Rumors of negotiations between Racing Club and Matthäus started last Saturday's and were then confirmed by club's president Rodolfo Molina after Racing's game against Lanús for the tenth match of the Apertura Tournament.

Molina said that Matthaüs would arrive today to help the club and "take a quality step", especially for the Clausura Tournament 2010, and also added that "his contract is not as expensive as people might think."

The German coach was supposed to be training Racing from today on while having as a main goal to drag the team out of the relegation zone.

Matthäus has already coached teams such as the Rapid from Viena, Belgrado's Partizan and the Brazilian Atlético Paranaense.
