Eintracht Frankfurt “can become German champions”



Eintracht Frankfurt "can become German champions"

Record international player Lothar Matthäus believes the high-flyers from Eintracht Frankfurt are capable of the really big coup in the Bundesliga.

Coach Oliver Glasner’s team could be the team “that, after what feels like an eternity, ensures that Bayern don’t become champions again,” wrote the 61-year-old in his sky-Column “That’s how I see it”.

Being at the top at the end of the season is “extremely difficult” for Eintracht, emphasized Matthäus. But “anyone who is as successful as Frankfurt and has this unique spirit can become German champion.”

The Europa League winner could land a big point on the way to the cup on Saturday evening when the SBU travels to Munich for the top game. In order to take three points from the Isar to the Main, the Eagles have to get past the new Bayern keeper Yann Sommer – but Matthäus only had words of praise for him too.

Summer fits “perfectly from a playful point of view” for the record champions, he wrote sky-Expert. The long-time number one at Borussia Mönchengladbach switched to Bayern on Thursday after a transfer hiccup to replace the injured Manuel Neuer. The 34-year-old Swiss is with the foot together with “Neuer the best in the Bundesliga”, Matthäus stated: “Yann Sommer is great.”
