BERLIN (Reuters) - German carmaker Volkswagen
Renschler resigned from his position as head of manufacturing at Mercedes-Benz Cars with immediate effect, Daimler
Analysts said Renschler, a former head of Daimler Trucks, may take a job at VW where sources said management is growing frustrated with the lack of progress in forging an alliance of truck brands MAN SE and Scania.
Asked by the daily newspaper to explain how VW managed to lure Renschler, Piech replied: "I have no comment on this yet, because first of all the supervisory board has to decide something."
"When it's all over, then you can say the best lure the best," he added.
VW declined to comment on the report.
A clause in Renschler's contract prevents an immediate switch to a competitor, a Daimler spokeswoman said.
