Sports director Max Eberl considers a discussion about Borussia Mönchengladbach’s coach Adi Hütter after the serious bankruptcies against 1. FC Köln (1: 4) and SC Freiburg (0: 6) to be absurd.
“If two defeats mean that a coach is questioned, then we can do it like in ancient Rome, that after every game we decide with thumbs up and thumbs down whether the coach can sit on the bench next weekend.” said Eberl at Sky.
Hütter had replaced Marco Rose, who had migrated to Borussia Dortmund, in Gladbach at the beginning of the season. The foal-elf is currently only 13th in the table. “A job is not just sunshine, but a job is also rain from time to time. And especially then it means for me to stand together even more. Discussing a coach who has lost twice is completely unacceptable to me and also lacking every basis that you do that, “said Eberl.
Eberl had held on to Rose until the end of the previous season despite a disappointing second half. “If you are not successful as a club for a long, long time, and if you notice that there are signs that some processes are no longer working, then we will deal with them critically. But after a blatant defeat and after you Derby, what you have lost, what you can lose – and we can also lose games – it is completely unacceptable for me to have such a discussion, “said Eberl.
