Glasner protects his players: The lemon was empty
The international places may permanently freeze the Eintracht after the 0: 2 at Union. Playful, however, the Eintracht the international places did not affect Easter Sunday, but rather at home. In the home table, Frankfurt has 17 points from 15 games only place 16. In the second half alone, the Hesse lost in the Waldstadion against Dortmund, Bielefeld, Wolfsburg, Bavaria and Freiburg, even tailoring Fürth defeated the Eintracht a point. Stand Frankfurt on Christmas Eve still pointed with Union Berlin in 6th place 6, this rank is now eight counters removed. Nevertheless, Hessen could even move into the Champions League – if you win the Europa League. It is important to the Frankfurt all, even if the coming opponent West Ham United is slightly favored by the paper.
Glasner: “I take 100 percent on my cap”
In Berlin, coach Oliver Glasner had switched on six positions: Jens Grahl replaced the attacked Kevin Trapp (tap in the wrist), also moved in Barcelona Tuta, Timothy Chandler, Ajdin Hrustic, Jens Petter Hauge and Goncalo Paciencia into the eleven. Once again, it became clear that the performance gap in the squad is considerable. It honors Glasner that he does not refer to the lack of quality in width. Rather, he takes on the defeat. “We were not able to retrieve our best performance. I take 100 percent on my cap,” says the coach. The cleansed players, despite the thin performance, takes protection: “I was very satisfied with the commitment as they have worked. It is difficult when the half team is new. We have played a little bit together.”
After two days on Easter Monday and Tuesday, the preparation for the home game against Hoffenheim starts from Wednesday. Glasner stresses: “We will not stop a single game.” That would be a good idea, rather the game against Hoffenheim offers the opportunity to refuel even more self-confidence for the Europa League. Since there are four full days between the Bundesliga pair against the TSG and the first leg in London, the coach can set the best possible eleven. Missing freshness should not be an issue at least in the coming two duels.
