Eberl is an example on Gladbach. He has been from Borussia since 1999. First as a player, then as a youth coordinator, and 2008 as a sports director. His contract is actually valid until 2026. According to Sky, he now has to plan a break before he can intervene elsewhere. Last year Eberl went on a winter vacation to recharge his batteries.

In addition, there were discussions about the free transfers of Matthias Zinder and Denise Zacharia. Eberl had recently been unwell, so he did not take a public post and kept Hütter in office. He will release the report soon.
