The first game to Max Eberl was neither breakthrough or catastrophe for Borussia Mönchengladbach. The situation remains sensitive.
The them all the topic could not hide Adi Hütter. “You can not easily go to the agenda. But the fact is: Max Eberl is no longer with us, we have to do it without him even without him,” said the coach of Borussia Mönchengladbach after the first game without the success manager – after his sensational exodus ( “I just want to get out”) was still omnipresent.
The Gladbach board is looking for a successor with high pressure in the middle of the season after a successor, some of the fellow fans thanked Eberl with transparent, the team had to collect himself after the withdrawal of the 48-year-old.
“It’s emotional days. Of course we miss him,” said Jonas Hofmann at “Sky”. However, the national player added significantly: “At some point we have to tick the topic.”
Descent zone threatening close
The point gain in the dimensional Arminia and, above all, its own occurrence are in the right direction as a small step, there was unity at Borussia. But the situation has by no means relaxed: after only one victory from the last nine games, the descent zone is threatening.
The Borussia Mönchengladbaching quality is available, which proved the Hütter-Elef not only with the compensation gate through the restarted Alassane Plea in the 38th minute.
But the knowledge of one’s own possibilities can be a team that laid out of the cup of Bayern Munich with 5-0 from the Cup, also weigh in deceptive safety – there is probably the greatest danger.
“We have many players who are likely to have nothing to do with descent fight,” said Vice President Rainer Bonhof at “Sky”, “but every single game looks at, there are reasons for it.”
Gladbach coach Hütter advertises patience
Hütter, which Eberl had brought in the summer for 7.5 million euros of Eintracht Frankfurt, knows about the tense situation. The game next Saturday against the only one point worse FC Augsburg (15:30 clock) is “an absolute key game”, the Austrian acknowledged. Maybe for him personally.
And so was Hütter for patience. “The lack of self-confidence is also due to the last results,” said the coach. All the more the performance is to comprehend as a good signal in the ability-threatened Arminia: “We have shown a now-first-law mentality after 0: 1.”
However, Gladbach also had to owe his strong goalkeeper Yann Sommer to his strong goalkeeper Yann Sommer.
The Swiss sees even heavy weeks and send the colleagues. “We have to go thereafter. We have to fighter properly to get points,” he stuck.
