The fact that it would happen before the first leg in the Champions League round of 16 and the Revier derby in the Bundesliga on Saturday at FC Schalke 04 is more of a problem from Dortmund’s point of view.
The Gladbachers, on the other hand, cleared the table, which means communication sovereignty and protects against the annoying question about Rose’s future.
Trainer on call?
For them, as for BVB, the question remains how it should work with a trainer on call.
“We’re really looking forward to Marco Rose,” said Dortmund’s managing director Hans-Joachim Watzke to SPIEGEL and added that there was nothing more to say at this point. “Out of respect for all parties involved”, so the BVB in a message, he will only comment again “on the sporting future under the direction of Marco Rose” after the end of the season.
That should give interesting interview maneuvers in the coming weeks, especially when the two Borussias meet on March 2nd in the quarter-finals of the DFB Cup.
Marco Rose, born 44 years ago in Leipzig, was Dortmund’s dream coach when Lucien Favre, also a former Gladbacher, was leading the team around captain Marco Reus, the former Gladbacher. It is said to have been plan A without there being a plan B.
Still coach Terzić is at least suspected in December, if not known, that BVB and Rose are planning the future together from summer 2021.
The style from the school of Ralf Rangnick and Jürgen Klopp with aggressive pressing and direct route to goal made the coach attractive for many German Bundesliga clubs. Gladbach was awarded the contract in 2019. Fourth place in the Bundesliga led to the Champions League.
The re Rose’s team survived the group stage despite a difficult draw, in the round of 16, Manchester City are the opponents.
Rose, the better maker?
Whether he will take the fans with him when they are allowed to go back into the stadium, whether he can inspire them, that is difficult to predict.
The longing at BVB is that they will get a coach again who will manage to get along with the fans, the team and their superiors over many years.
In the summer it will mainly be about keeping the team together as much as possible. In the case of Jadon Sancho that should be very difficult, Erling Haaland threatens to leave if BVB misses the Champions League. Rose’s task will be to bring good footballers back to their limits: Giovanni Reyna, Julian Brandt, Manuel Akanji, Reus. Some players developed positively in Gladbach: Florian Neuhaus, Jonas Hofmann, Ramy Bensebaini.
To be able to get the best out of very good opportunities, apart from the better earning potential, that should be the attraction for Marco Rose. Perhaps also that BVB has ensnared him as Plan A, and only as that, for months.
