Fix the mistakes together: Frankfurt harmony before the Marseille game

Fix the mistakes together: Frankfurt harmony before the Marseille game

Vor a few weeks, the Frankfurt football world was still in order. Of the injury concerns, which also contribute to the start of the Europa League to tense mood, could be during the training camp in South Tyrol, no question. Even with Adi Hütter, by nature a rather reserved nature, positive impressions during the preparation provided for an optimistic view of the things that solved his tongue: During a fan-fest, he received from the researching moderator with the subtle hint the microphone in pressed his hand that his predecessor in the service of the Frankfurt in the northern Italian mountains had always laid the foundation that it went up with concord – and he must certainly be measured.

Hütter might not promise too much on the spot, but formulated a message that was applauded by the audience from Hessen. He wanted that already in the first season under his direction presented presentable results: "The dream should live," he summarized the good intentions of his work with the team. Some hope has since been surpassed by reality.

No soaring in the table

In the cup, the defending champion quickly failed. In the championship is after three matchdays with only three points and a program in which it goes on crisp, so fast no flight in the table to be expected. He was "not quite happy," said Hütter bluntly this week. Also with regard to his own position, the Austrian is clear that a respectable victory in the European Cup would be extremely helpful. Otherwise, the pressure would grow. The comeback in international business is enormously important both at board level and in fan circles.

That the expectation does not make things easier for him, Hütter also before the duel at Olympique Marseille on this Thursday (18.55 clock, live at DAZN) recognize. Against the French it comes for the Bundesliga Twelfth to return to the Europa League, where they last made in the 2013/2014 season for positive headlines. Hütter was under no illusion about the gravity of the task. The followers should like to indulge in beautiful memories and indulge in pink wishful thinking. He said himself, also due to some unexpected failures, rather modest: "We will find opportunities and want to take something," he said on Wednesday in the Stade Vélodrom.
