Eintracht Frankfurt and the distress in the back right

Dhe occupation of the right-back position leaves Oliver Glasner in no time. It gives the Eintracht coach a big headache. The Austrian has no shortage of candidates for the post: Danny da Costa, Erik Durm, Almamy Touré and Timothy Chandler are very familiar with this area of ​​responsibility. But these four players do not manage to playfully convince in the long run. Regardless of who Glasner has set up, none of them has been able to perform well over the long term in the past.

In an emergency, the coach recently tried Aymen Barkok. The result: Even the Moroccan international did not bring stability to the field. After half an hour in the home game against Leipzig (1-1), Barkok disappointed in the 2-1 away win against Olympiacos in the Europa League. Barkok received the receipt for his loss of performance in the Bundesliga game in Fürth (2: 1) when Glasner did not appoint him to the squad. “Aymen showed against Leipzig that he can do it well. He didn’t have the consistency against Olympiacos ”, criticized the coach.

The player casting for the Frankfurt problem area continues. It has become a great game of patience and a game of changing trees for the people of Frankfurt. In the duel with the newly promoted Fürth, Durm was allowed to play on the position last Sunday. But only for one half.

Then the 2014 World Champion Touré had to give way because Durm did not meet the requirements. However, Touré did not experience the final whistle on the pitch. Shortly before the end of the game, the Frenchman was replaced again. The maximum penalty. Touré was “injured for a long time”, he could “not be constant”, said Glasner. “Still, I expect Almamy to be more defensive. It was too easy how Fürth got through behind him. “
