Mönchengladbach. The 7,067 fans in Borussia-Park have made one thing clear at Gladbach’s successful dress rehearsal for the approaching start of the DFB Cup season at 1. FC Kaiserslautern (August 9, 2021): The new foal trainer Adi Hütter (51) has some mood credit with the VfL loyalists. During the test victory (2: 1) on Saturday (July 31) against the Dutch first division club FC Groningen, thousands of fans kept shouting Hütter’s name. Hütter, successor to Marco Rose (44), who is now working for Dortmund, is apparently coming to the left Lower Rhine with his kind.
Gladbach’s dress rehearsal puts fans and foal trainers in a good mood
Foal captain Lars Stindl (15th) ensured that there was always a good mood in Gladbach with the early lead. The guests from the Netherlands were responsible for the other hits: Matusiwa (40th) increased to 2-0 after a sharp cross from Herrmann with an own goal. It was De Leeuw (48th) who punished a summer mistake by stabbing to 1: 2 for Groningen. It stayed that way.

Hütter, who had also killed his EM riders in Sommer, Thuram, Ginter and Neuhaus, was not dissatisfied with that. Possibly also because he was received so friendly and euphoric by the Gladbach audience. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, thousands of fans were allowed to come and loudly support their eleven.
After the final whistle, GladbachLIVE immediately followed up with the football teacher from Austria: How was the first appearance in front of a larger crowd at Borussia-Park?
Hütter replied: “Of course I heard that the fans called my name several times. After the first time, I also thanked the fans with a wave of the hand. That is of course a great feeling. The fans also expect something from me, from our coaching team and the team. Of course that was good. “
Borussia’s coach immediately followed up with a smart smile: “Of course I would also like it if that’s the case, when it comes to the point games. I would even prefer the fans to call my name because we have won a lot of point games here at Borussia-Park. But of course that was a good feeling. “
Gladbach: Hütter still has a lot to do before the Bayern game
How satisfied was he with his team’s performance against Groningen? “Of course we still have room for improvement. You could see that we were chasing the ball too much, especially in the second half. I didn’t like this that much either. We won. That’s okay. But we still have a lot to do. “
Especially since: Gladbach’s season opener is tough. First the cup fight on the Betzenberg in Lautern. Only four days later (August 13th), record champions Bayern Munich will come to the Fohlen-Arena for the Bundesliga opener.
Hütter made no secret of the fact that there is still sand in the gears at Gladbach. However, he also expected it, as he let through after the Groningen duel. “Some things didn’t surprise me. We’ve only had the national players back in training for a few days. Not all processes can fit there yet. “

Nevertheless: The dress rehearsal against Groningen showed that after the emotional roller coaster ride around the BVB departure of Rose including the disappointing eighth place, the fans are back in the mood for their foal team – and the new coach Hütter a lot of welcome credit grant.
