“I’m in the tunnel now”



"I'm in the tunnel now"

Full focus on the European Cup qualification: After the decision to separate from Eintracht Frankfurt, coach Oliver Glasner is putting on blinkers for achieving the remaining goals for the season. “I have decided not to say anything more about my personal situation until after the cup final in Berlin,” said the Austrian on Thursday.

“I’m in the tunnel now. Everything that was in front of the tunnel doesn’t interest me at all,” Glasner explained: “I don’t see everything left and right anyway because the tunnel is there. There are two exits: One is to Europe , and one isn’t going to Europe. My focus now is solely on catching the exit to Europe.”

On Tuesday, Eintracht announced the separation from Glasner after the DFB Cup final against RB Leipzig on June 3rd. “It’s very important to me personally that we still achieve a place in Europe via the league or the cup,” said the 48-year-old: “It’s best to do both.”

Glasner has to follow the upcoming Bundesliga game against FSV Mainz 05 on Saturday (3:30 p.m. / Sky) because of a red suspension from the stands because he had kicked a second ball onto the field in the defeat at TSG Hoffenheim (1: 3). . “I came as a bore, and now I’m leaving as a highly emotional guy,” he said with a smile: “Two years in Frankfurt made me.”

On Thursday, Glasner also apologized to the journalist with whom he had argued loudly at the press conference after the Hoffenheim game. “The tone of voice was in no way appropriate,” he said: “I still stand by the content.”
