The Bundesliga team FC Koln (Cologne) is looking for a new president and the news agency DAPD recently said Schumacher's name had been put forward.

Late last week, Schumacher's former rival Gerhard Berger tipped the 43-year-old to quit F1 at the end of this season because "he can't beat a young driver at (teammate Nico) Rosberg's level".

The next day, the Mercedes driver watched Cologne play Schalke, even visiting the club's private area at the stadium.

So is there any truth to the rumours?

"It's known that Michael has been a Cologne fan for many years. That doesn't mean he wants to be the president.

"His 100 per cent priority is his job with Mercedes in Formula One," insisted manager and spokeswoman Sabine Kehm.
