Franz explains why he wouldn’t mourn the 29-year-old: “The club has done a lot for its image. Eintracht is cool and plays in the Champions League. They have proven that they have very good scouting. Then someone else comes along Player to fill the gap.” There are now many players who want to switch to Eintracht, says Franz.

Eintracht Frankfurt, News: Real coach Ancelotti warns

After the start of the Bundesliga on Friday against Bayern Munich (from 8.30 p.m. in LIVETICKER), the next highlight is on the program for Eintracht Frankfurt next week. On Wednesday, the UEFA Super Cup Champions League winner Real Madrid awaits the SGE.

They put a lot of focus on defense and quick transitions.” Still, Ancelotti stressed that Real Madrid have a chance of six titles next season and want to win them all.

Eintracht Frankfurt: Club icon optimistic before the start of the season

Not only in the cup competitions, but also in the coming Bundesliga season, club icon Dragoslav Stepanovic believes Eintracht Frankfurt can perform well. “The team won the Europa League, we’re on the right track,” said the 73-year-old SID: “You could have lost a first game like that in Magdeburg in other times. But the team is so well-stocked. I hope that our coach doesn’t get a headache about who to field.”

Even at the start against Bayern Munich, “anything could happen,” he explained: “I would like a 1-1 draw, that our team will gradually make it into the Bundesliga. We can show more later on.” Above all, the 4-0 win in the DFB Cup against Magdeburg inspired him. “They were so light-footed and in a good mood that I said straight away I’d watch a game from the 2000s in the latest version,” said Stepanovic.
