Bundesliga: Oliver Glasner’s appeal after the 1-1 draw against Hertha

BDuring a visit to the federal capital Berlin, which ended with Eintracht unadorned 1-1 draw against Hertha BSC, the Frankfurt soccer coach Oliver Glasner called for people to “not always talk about Europe”. The 47-year-old Austrian is apparently tired of hearing about Eintracht’s Europa League win and the associated high expectations of his club.

He was asked” that the Europa League winner is playing here. And I answered: The Bundesliga eleven from the previous season plays here, who lost Martin Hinteregger and Filip Kostic, two national players with huge experience,” said Glasner at the press conference after the game and was not yet finished with his unequivocal statements: “That, what we achieved internationally last season, we achieved with unbelievably great discipline, passion and willingness – and not because we played every opponent to the ground.” That’s why, according to the football coach, he says it “also with this clarity, that we shouldn’t always talk about Europe”.

Disappointing placement

The Frankfurters, who lost 6-1 to Bayern in the first division opening game, are currently feeling the burden of winning the international title. Many are now demanding a lot from them because the club is adorned with an award with great radiance. In Europe, Eintracht stands for continued success. For favorite falls, carelessness and unbridled passion. That is the assessment basis for the new Bundesliga season, in which Eintracht wants to continue its success story on the national stage.

Coach and team have set themselves the goal of a place between first and sixth place, compared to the past round with the disappointing placement they want to make up a lot in their core business. This time, an international starting place should be achieved through the local competition.

And then there's this: referee Frank Willenborg doesn't give Eintracht a penalty after the intervention of the video assistant.

But on the first two first division matchdays, the Frankfurt team, who have now been without a win for ten Bundesliga games across the season and in which Jens Petter Hauge is loaned to KAA Gent, did not live up to their ambitious claims. “We haven’t found the stability we want yet,” said Glasner. The team doesn’t work as a collective as the coach would like it to. And as many believe her in terms of her composition.
