Despite the 3-1 success in the away game against SpVgg Greuther Fürth, Marco Rose smiled only tortured into the cameras after the game. According to Borussia Dortmund’s license player Sebastian Kehl, who had made before the game, the BVB coach suddenly saw himself confronted with speculation about his future.
“I am still a coach of Borussia Dortmund next year,” Rose emphasized after the final whistle on the TV station “Sky” clearly: “I’m looking forward to it.”
Previously, Kehl had only replied twice when asked whether Rose was still a coach of the Dortmunder next season, only replied that he was assuming. This was enough to spark a flash debate around Rose, which in Dortmund still has a contract until the summer of 2024.
“What should I tell you? You try to conjure up something from any things,” Rose replied after the victory against relegated Fürth the boring reporter. With a view to the club tour around Hans-Joachim Watzke, the Dortmund coach assured: “We work very trustingly together.” Will these words be enough to bring peace again?
Rose: I have an “excellent relationship” to the BVB team
In any case, Rose knows the business all too well. “It is football and there are people who say that I may not be the right coach, but there are also many people who say that the path and the circumstances were difficult this season,” said the 45-year-old And added: “I think it is relatively quick in football, if you lose two games, then you are actually gone again.”
However, he “has an excellent relationship with my team” and wanted to “get a lot on the way,” emphasized Rose. Therefore, he takes the speculation “relatively relaxed”, says the BVB coach, which should still raise the question internally, which is why Kehl had opened this tap that was so unnecessary for the club.
“We are runner-up and have 66 points,” Rose made the achievements of his team, but also admitted need for improvement: “But: We were very disappointed in all cup competitions.”
TV expert Dietmar Hamann liked the combative attitude of the coached coach. “I often lack this fire to defend themselves against resistance and to result in strengthened,” Hamann said at “Sky” about Roses defense speech and added: “I like to see him combative.”
BVB is happy about double pack from Brandt
Rose could have had at least a little bit of reason to be happy on Saturday. Julian Brandt shot the club for the vice championship. With a double pack against Fürth, the national player cleared the last theoretical doubts to second place behind the long -term champion FC Bayern Munich.
For the Dortmund, the home party of Fürth’s coach Stefan Leitl was long like a summer jick with no necessary sharpness and pace, but they turned up in the final phase. Brandt used the first BVB chance in the 26th minute and made the lead again after the change of sides (72nd). With his first Bundesligator, Jessic Ngankam (70th) had the Fürth supporters cheered in the meantime. However, Felix Passlack (77th) increased with a deflected shot in the stadium sold out with 16,626 fans.
The Borussia around the goreless Erling Haaland showed only one tiny reaction after the indiscountable 3: 4 against VfL Bochum and won through its higher individual class. The Fürther were a long -time opponent in their last home game.
