German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said the next head of the European Union’s euro group probably won’t come from a state that received a bailout, Focus reported.
Still, Portuguese Finance Minister Vitor Gaspar would be a good candidate to replace the current head of the group, Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker, the German magazine cited Schaeuble as saying in an e-mailed summary of an article.
Schaeuble said in an interview that heading the euro group himself “is not my dream but it wouldn’t be a nightmare,” according to Focus.
