Sports director Max Eberl from Borussia Mönchengladbach is still in good contact with former coach Marco Rose. “We have an extremely open relationship, we still talk on the phone today and ask how we are. And seriously,” said Eberl in an interview with the West German newspaper.
Rose had made use of his release clause in the summer and moved to DFB Cup winner Borussia Dortmund for five million euros.
“Of course, when someone decides to do something else, you have to hold on to that something is missing somewhere and that can perhaps be called identification,” said Eberl, but emphasized: “That is not a replacement, that is the truth. Otherwise he would have stayed . My esteem will remain. “
With Rose’s successor Adi Hütter, the five-time German champion opens the new season on Friday against the German record champion Bayern Munich.
