Jubel, hustle and bustle cheerfulness: After the 2: 1 over Bayern Munich, the sky over the Frankfurt Eintracht appears sky blue and the future pink. The league pays the Hessians respect and recognition for having brought excitement to the championship again, national coach Joachim Löw finds words of praise for the outstanding player of the day, and coach Adi Hütter has to listen to the question of whether Eintracht after eleven games without defeat in this one Lose a game at all.
Yes, it would be easy to lose the ground under your feet. For Amin Younes, who heard von Löw on Sky: “Younes played a very good game. His technique and orientation on the pitch are great. He’s a player who resolves one-on-one situations perfectly. ”For Hütter, who is admired everywhere for turning a middle-class team into an“ unbeatable ”top team. For many Eintracht professionals who are currently experiencing exceptionally good days in their careers and whose longing for the Champions League is slowly becoming tangible.
But it is not as if Eintracht is currently strolling in a garden of happiness and is just before the gate to paradise. The traditional club has to struggle with tangible problems. Especially next to the field. But there is also danger in terms of sport. Hütter is absolutely right in his assessment: “Now we are the hunted.” The opponents will tackle the confrontation with the newcomer of the season with particular passion. But the team seems well equipped, at least as long as the professionals don’t allow themselves to be distracted by the success and the associated offers.
The main task for the club management is currently not to let any unrest arise. Just how does she do it? In which she approaches the players, assures them of her appreciation and, if necessary, promises early contract extensions with salary increases and ultimately executes them.
In the case of sports director Fredi Bobic, this procedure began weeks ago. Hertha BSC’s offer to the 49-year-old former national player made the supervisory board prick up, even more so the general replicas of the courted, which, with the best will, could not be interpreted as a commitment to unity.
“Fredi has a contract”
Statements by Eintracht President Peter Fischer to Sky suggest that Bobic is still thinking about changing clubs: “Fredi has a contract, and I attach great importance to being faithful to the contract.” The sports director’s contract in Frankfurt runs until summer 2023. ” We have always had a very good and successful relationship. So I hope the treaty will be fulfilled. However, I am aware that success leads to desires, ”said Fischer.
If you compare the state of both clubs, it is difficult to find something that made Hertha more attractive than Eintracht. Except for the fact that things can hardly go worse in Berlin (in relation to the possibilities) and hardly better in Frankfurt. But is Bobic drawn to Hertha before he reaps the harvest of his five years of work with Eintracht? It seems more likely that an even more potent club has paid its respects.
