TV appearance of Gladbach manager Max Eberl late Saturday evening in the "current sports studio" (ZDF). The 45-year-old had recently caused a quake in Borussia Park, after he had dismissed coach Dieter Hecking (54) – despite a contract extension – on 30 June. With Marco Rose (42 / RB Salzburg) Hecking's successor is on tour.
BMG: Max Eberl in the "Current Sports Studio"
That's what Eberl said about …
… the away-threesome of the foals in Hanover: "That certainly was not an exhilarating football match, but we won. We had a lot more chances to play, more scoring chances, you have to blame us for not making it 2-0. "
Captain Lars Stindl was seriously injured during the match and has already undergone surgery (read more here).
… the separation at the end of the season from Hecking: "That Dieter is disappointed is legitimate. The club and I made a decision that hit him. I know that. This decision was very difficult for me, that has been very emotional for me. I really appreciate Dieter and his work. However, something had opened up in which I had to think of myself as a responsible sports director. It had turned out that a very interesting coach had come on the market. And there it is my responsibility to think about it. For the long-term, we have decided to do something new. "
… Marco Rose: "I was able to convince him of our club, of the idea we have. We are happy about that. But that counts only in June, now Dieter Hecking is important. "
… a possible commitment of Bremen attacker Max Kruse: "He will continue on his way and will also sign a big contract. But not in Mönchengladbach. "
… the rumors that a Jonas Boldt or Horst Heldt could support him in his future work, for example as a cadre planner: "I have not found the puzzle and the position yet. I'm thinking about how we can set up the club for the future in this regard. We can not talk about names yet, but we have an idea of how we want to position ourselves. I definitely want quality. We are a club with an extremely big name, have taken an incredible development in the past ten years again. We are back. Play around Europe every year. And that means setting up. We need good people to do a good job. It must match."
