Co-boss Staech­mann ad­mits Pan­thers could have han­dled things bet­ter

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Etbusiness Daily -

PAN­THERS boss Jan has ad­mit­ted the club made mis­takes over their han­dling of the Jesper B. Mon­berg saga.

Staech­mann was the man who had to break the news of Mon­berg’s exit to the rider on Fri­day and now he can’t wait to wel­come his fel­low Dane back into the fold at Poole tonight.

Staech­mann ad­mit­ted: “It was a wrench to have to tell Jesper he was be­ing rested from the team af­ter Fri­day’s meet­ing at Coven­try.

“I’ve been in that po­si­tion my­self as a rider and it is not some­thing you want to hear.

“Jesper was an­gry and dis­ap­pointed which are the nat­u­ral and very un­der­stand­able feel­ings in the cir­cum­stances, but I’m pleased that he will be back in the team from to­day on­wards.

“It is dif­fi­cult for me to com­ment too much on what hap­pened be­cause I haven’t been privy to all the in­for­ma­tion, but it could cer­tainly have been han­dled bet­ter.”

Staech­mann was far hap­pier with a thrilling 51-42 triumph over Birm­ing­ham achieved in Mon­berg’s ab­sence on Mon­day.

He added: “We came out fight­ing when we had our backs to the wall and it was bril­liant to be part of a vic­tory like that.

“I have said many times that our team spirit is ab­so­lutely ter­rific and hope­fully that will come to the fore again tonight.”
