Lefévère angry at Sinkewitz

Bad vibes have been reported inside the Quick.Step team bus. Team manager Patrick Lefévère spoke out to Belgian media sportwereld.be about his anger at Patrik Sinkewitz' announcement to leave the squad for T-Mobile next year. "If I could replace Sinkewitz in our Tour team, I would do it immediately," the Belgian said. "He broke his word. The German is a false player all the way. I have an agreement with his manager Tony Rominger and e-mails from Sinkewitz himself saying that he would sign a new two-year contract at the Tour. He just used me to get on the Tour roster. [...] He shouldn't expect any support from our team. He's only 25, so he will still be around for some years if he's not suspended or victim of a crash. The wheel is round and continues to spin and it's only a small world. I'll get him sooner or later."
