Borussia Mönchengladbach will face the on Friday evening BVB at. The focus of this top duel is Marco Rose – after all, he is being treated by some media as a hot candidate in Dortmund to take over as coach there for the coming season. Just in case, Max Eberl should currently prepare accordingly.
The picture reports that Gladbach’s sports director contacted Erik ten Hag by phone during his break in January. The 50-year-old has been working very successfully as head coach at Ajax Amsterdam since December 2017 and sensationally led the Dutch to the semi-finals of the Champions League. In the past, ten Hag was also loosely associated with a job at BVB and FC Bayern.
In the report, however, it says that Eberl made it clear during the phone call with ten Hag that it was initially just an introductory conversation! Gladbach’s sports director first wanted to sound out the market in order to be prepared for an emergency. Accordingly, Borussia would “only find out from Rose in the next few weeks” whether he is really planning to leave BVB or whether he will remain loyal to the foal elf beyond the summer.
Eberl is preparing for an emergency – no more, no less
Eberl therefore only does his job very conscientiously by exploring potential alternatives. Ultimately, everything still seems to be open in Gladbach’s coaching question.
Rose himself has been throwing off any questions about his future for some time and emphasizes that he is fully focused on his current work on the Lower Rhine. From the Gladbach squad, however, it can be heard that one would be “very surprised” if Rose should really switch to the league competitor. The players believe in his whereabouts.
