Manager Max Eberl is not only happy about the progression of his club Borussia Mönchengladbach in the DFB Cup, but also about the end of Bayern Munich for German football as a whole.
“It’s nice for the Bundesliga, for the cup, that Bayern won’t win the cup. They can’t get the double,” said Eberl after his team’s 5-0 gala against FC Bayern in the second round of the cup . “I think we really impressed them and they were a little perplexed for whatever reason.”
Bayern were already 3-0 down after 21 minutes, and Breel Embolo scored a brace after the break. “You dream of something like that from time to time. But you don’t believe that something like this will become reality. That was a great achievement,” said Eberl, speaking of a “magical night”. Gladbach had “defended outstandingly and played football very, very well”.
Jonas Hofmann on the Bayern players: “Rattles in the head”
Coach Adi Hütter said: “The way we scored the goals was absolutely world class. A more than deserved victory today. It all worked out. What annoys me are setbacks like in Berlin. At home, as always, almost let the pig go . We are delighted with this historic victory. ” He and his coaching team have “analyzed Bayern well and seen that they are very high and defend one-on-one.”
Jonas Hofmann, who played an outstanding game, experienced perplexed opponents after the furious opening phase: “If you are 3-0 down after 20 minutes, it rattles in your head. Then Bayern are only human. I think that’s completely normal. “
