Borussia Mönchengladbach’s sports director Max Eberl responded to the club’s series of defeats with clear words and an emotional appeal to the restless team. “We are all to blame,” Eberl said Saturday evening ZDF– “Sportstudio” after Gladbach’s 1: 4 on RB Leipzig. “I do not want to see anyone pointing at anyone else. Everyone should do this, hold their noses!” Coach Adi Hooter’s team had previously lost 6-0 to SC Freiburg and 4-1 to FC Cole in the Bundesliga.
After a good start to the season, Eberl said stability was “lost” by three defeats and tried to quote my colleague: “We have to show our eggs now!” The sports director demanded team spirit and self-criticism from his experts. The 48-year-old said, “Mistakes will be resolved very clearly and of course we will appeal to a certain degree of respect for the players.” “We all have a duty.” Eberl: “It’s not like you’re pushing a button in a company: everything works again now.”
In light of the current vaccine debate, Eberl wants to identify the consequences in advance, “we’re not even in that situation, and now we’re on the verge of a more complicated Christmas season again. I wanted. People to take on more responsibility,” the Gladbach manager stressed. “Accordingly, I can only call everyone: get vaccinated! This is the way we are currently helping to get back to normal.”
