Speculations about a premature exit from coach Oliver Glasner at Eintracht Frankfurt are increasing. After the Austrian’s angry speech on Saturday following the Hessians’ defeat at TSG Hoffenheim (1: 3) and criticism from board spokesman Axel Hellmann, Glasner is said to be Eintracht, according to the Picture soon to leave despite his contract until 2024.
Accordingly, it is only a matter of whether the 48-year-old has to go against league rivals RB Leipzig before or after the cup final on June 3rd. A crisis talk in the coming days between Glasner and sports director Markus Krösche should bring clarity.
Glasner had led Eintracht to triumph in the Europa League last year and thus to their first entry into the Champions League. In recent weeks, however, criticism of the coach has increased, whose team has been waiting for a win for ten league games.
After his red card in Sinsheim, Glasner is suspended for the neighborhood duel on Saturday (3:30 p.m.) against FSV Mainz 05, as the German Football Association (DFB) confirmed on Monday.
At least since his outburst on Saturday, numerous observers have assumed that Glasner’s term in Frankfurt is about to end. Potential successors are already being discussed in Matthias Jaissle and Dino Toppmöller.
