The fans sang for a long time after final whistle and Sven Mislinat got a goose bumps directly at his analysis. “That was just horny,” said the Bad Cannstatts director of VfB Stuttgart before the backdrop that had driven the Swabia with the important 3: 2 (1: 2) against FC Augsburg.

Thanks to the next successful catch-up, the comeback kings from Bad Cannstatt have left the descent zone of the football league for the first time since the 18th matchday. How the basement duel with the FCA through your late hits still shot how it was whipped from the thanks to a special permit 55,785 spectators in the arena and like coach pellegrino matarazzo after the winner in the jubel bone of his players disappeared: all the stand on Saturday symbolistic for the new strength of this Stuttgarter.

“Team with an excellent attitude”

It is not long ago, the VFB would have divided into crisis situations like the one before a few weeks ago in several areas and possibly pulled out his coach. But this time the Swabia preserved the rest – and are currently rewarded. Seven points they have brought them from the past three games – every time after residue. In the table you pushed in place in place. Just like the FC Augsburg right behind them and Hertha BSC on the relegation rank you have already reached 26 points and the saving shore has long not reached. The faith in the league seems at the meantime so demoralized VFB but greater than ever.

What in the end of the season speak for Stuttgart, Mislinat was asked successively after the second home success. “Have already undergoing the hardest crisis, I believe,” he said back to the nine Siegless Games in series, who had VfB to March. And: “The cohesion at all levels. Clearly behind the coach to have and continue to stand.” A “team with excellent work and attitude.” Which has shown that it is “mental strong”, so midfielder Atadan Karazor.

The fans came to Augsburg. A “giant pounds” could be that, said Mislinat. And they would have proved that. The second residue shortly before the pause would have been a “neck strike”, but would have triggered both the players and the followers but a “now quite” effect. “I did not believe that we lose the game,” said the 49-year-old. And was confirmed thanks to the great morality of his team.

Adoption of Board Chief Hitzlsperger

André Hahn (6. Minute) and Michael Gregoritsch (45. + 1) had the efficient efficient before the break, but much to passive Augsburger brought twice. The Stuttgart beats back to standard situations three times. First, Waldemar Anton (44) headed a free-kick edge of Borna Sosa, then turned Omar Marmoush (79.) a dormant ball directly and worth seeing in the left angle. And finally, Tiago Tomás (85th) hammered in a wild end phase the ball after an already clarified free-kick for 3: 2 under the lath. “That was very emotional,” said VFB coach Matarazzo.

Emotional had already started the afternoon in Stuttgart. Before the kick-off, the outgoing board leader Thomas Hitzlsperger was passed. He had “very enjoyed the work with the ex-national player,” said Mislinat. “He will stay a friend for life.” But he is also looking forward to his successor Alexander Wehrle, which in the VFB on Monday. A “top man” is that, so mislint. And the best replacement you can get for Hitzlsperger.

“He first takes over the resorts of Thomas. That is, the Bad Cannstatts board is there,” said Mislinat for role distribution under Wehrle. Whether he takes over the post of the Bad Cannstatts council sometime or retains the director, is “completely unimportant” for the 49-year-old. Only the spirit who created the Stuttgart wants to preserve Mislinat in any case. He is currently their greatest strength.
