The media painted a picture of Draxler leaving Schalke for Wolfsburg, but Horst Heldt has denied such talks.
German media reported that the 21-year-old midfielder had tears in his eyes when he shook hands with coach Andre, when he was substitute off during Schalke’s 3-0 loss to Wolfsburg.
It was also reported that Draxler asked his teammates how he would look in a Wolfsburg shirt.
Heldt has refuted such claims, with bids from Juventus for Draxler already being denied repeatedly.
â€œBoth Julian and Andre were more surprised than anyone to hear these reports,â€ Heldt told the club website.
â€œJulian has vehemently denied having uttered anything even remotely like that.
â€œAs for Andre and the handshake, it was a very normal gesture after a substitution. Also, he had no “tears in his eyes”, as was reported.”
