The German Football Association (DFB) has opened talks with Berti Vogts about a possible return of the former Germany coach as technical director of the national squad.

The DFB’s co-president, Theo Zwanziger, and its general secretary, Horst Schmidt, held talks with Vogts earlier in the week.

“It is mainly about how the DFB wants to put itself forward after 2006,” the DFB said, adding Zwanziger had ruled out any decision before the Confederations Cup in June.

Vogts coached Germany to victory in the 1996 European Championship. After an unsuccessful spekll in charge of the Scotland team, he had returned to his homeland and was was being lined up for a scouting role in the squad.

However, a more formal role could be on the cards for Vogts.

“I’m not going to wait for the DFB until 2006 and play golf for a year and a half. I have other offers, so it can’t work like that,” Sueddeutsche Zeitung quoted him as saying.
