After Bora-Hansgrohe boss Ralph Denk cast doubt over Peter Sagan's future with the team, the two parties hoping to decide the Slovakian's future by the end of the month, EF Education-Nippo manager Jonathan Vaughters has criticised Denk for his comments, saying the German wouldn't have a WorldTour team without the three-time world champion.

"Now that I’m one of the senior managers in pro cycling, oftentimes people ask me who I respect as a fellow manager in the sport? Answer is Patrick Lefevere and Doug Ryder. This guy below [Ralph Denk]? He forgets he wouldn’t have a WT team without Peter Sagan," Vaughters said.
