Marco Rose celebrated a successful debut against BVB. In Gladbach, however, his return as RB Leipzig coach went horribly wrong.
Marco Rose clearly lost the duel against ex-club Borussia Mönchengladbach with RB Leipzig. The Saxons suffered a 0:3 defeat in the “foals”. National player Jonas Hofmann (10th/35th) and Ramy Bensebaini (53rd) shot the ice-cold hosts to their first victory on Saturday evening in front of 50,186 spectators after three games without three points. For Rose, who was greeted with whistles and insults at his ex-club on the Lower Rhine, it was the second defeat in the third game as RB coach.
Leipzig and Gladbach will also be in lively exchange after the direct duel. In the forthcoming international break, an agreement is expected to change the long-time Gladbach sporting director Eberl to RB.
Hofmann dusted off
“It’s not that far anymore, we’re on the home straight,” said RB managing director Oliver Mintzlaff before the game on Sky. Nothing will happen at the weekend. But: “I hope that we will have a final decision in the next few days,” said Mintzlaff.
The opponent and the personal details of Eberl and Rose provided plenty of explosives. The home spectators whistled at the guests in possession of the ball in the early stages with whistles. Eberl (with posters) and Rose (with songs) were badly insulted. When a banner against club RB was presented in the north curve, referee Patrick Ittrich (Hamburg) warned over the stadium microphones that the game would be interrupted.
