Ironically, with the return of former coach Oliver Glasner, VfL Wolfsburg have dropped the first points of this Bundesliga season. As for the game, Glasner did not progress with the change.
The answer is short, quick and clear. After returning to Wolfsburg, Oliver Glasner was sometimes asked if he regretted being here anymore.
At a Champions League club, he put together a whole team and even strengthened it with national players like Luca Waltzmid, Dodi Lukabagio and Lucas Enmecha. But Glasner only said: “No.” And you can think of three exclamation points.
The 47-year-old has been training since this summer Eintracht Frankfurt And 1: 1 (1: 0) won his new club with his old club. Of VfL Wolfsburg Creating a goal-scoring ratio of 15: 6 in front of 9266 spectators, he lost his first place in the table after losing the first points of this Bundesliga season. FC Bayern Munich. Frankfurt, on the other hand, did not win a game under Glasner. What everything shows: This point was also much happier than it deserved. As a result of his action the Austrian certainly did not improve in terms of the game.
“Success is not possible today”
Glasner knew all this, and nothing shone. “It’s not possible to win today. We have to be honest. Wolfsburg put in an incredible amount of pressure and had incredible amounts of power in the game. They didn’t give us room to breathe,” he said. Sam Lamers (38th) Frankfurt tour lasted only until the 70th minute. “But we can continue to build this performance. We’m going to find each other. And the guys are very willing to improve things.”
When Glasner left VfL it was not about the game perspective. Otherwise he would have to stay in Wolfsburg. This is because of his relationship with sports director Jerk Schmidt and the question of who has what influence in sports planning. The former coach did not officially say goodbye to VFL fans on Sunday, which shows how random the division is.
Examining this, his return was actually quite hot. Glasner spoke at length before and after the game with executive director Tim Schumacher and VFL expert Maximilian Arnold, who always praised the professional qualities of this coach. “We haven’t hit the headlines here in two years,” the Einratt coach said. “I was very pleased to see so many former employees back.” Schmadtke too? “No, I did not meet Jork. But it’s nothing unusual. When I play against Bayern Munich or Borussia Dortmund, I never see the opponents’ game directors.”
Glasner’s successor Mark von Pommel in Wolfsburg has nothing to do with this. He never spoke to his predecessors until Sunday evening, and benefited from his development work – now he wants to bring VFL even further. “I’m glad we got 13 points. And if you watch the game, it looks great,” the Dutchman said. He was disappointed in 1: 1. “But if you lose the championship lead, it means: we are in a very good position.”
