Oliver Glasner reacted angrily to Eintracht Frankfurt’s next Bundesliga defeat and broke off the obligatory interview after the game.
“I won’t let myself be provoked today,” the Hessen coach replied to a reporter after the 3-1 defeat at Bayer Leverkusen. He had been asked about his team’s alleged lack of speed of action. Glasner: “It’s Easter now, it’s a celebration of peace, that’s why we’re not opening anything here anymore.”
The coach also announced that he would give his team two days off. “The boys deserved it, even if we lost today,” said the 48-year-old, who was looking forward to the holidays with his family: “We’ll pick eggs, you don’t know that here, but we do it in Austria That and then we’ll see each other again next week.”
Frankfurt have been waiting for a win for six league games and had to let Bayer pass them in sixth place due to the defeat. And yet: “I don’t look at the table, just at the next game,” said Glasner. In order not to lose touch in the fight for international places, a win should finally be achieved in the home game against Borussia Mönchengladbach next Saturday.
