Due to adductor complaints, attacker Marcus Thuram Borussia Mönchengladbach is not available on Monday (8:30 p.m./DAZN) in the home game against RB Leipzig. László Bénes cannot be used either.
Trainer Adi Hütter wants to work against the Champions League aspirant on a stable defense and a good switching game: “According to goals, there is currently a certain uncertainty at the moment, we sometimes let ourselves be disturbed too quickly and then no longer worries for The necessary relief. We have to work on that. “
The last games of the season will also be decisive for Borussia’s face in the coming season. “We see who tears themselves up for Borussia until the end of the season and will then draw our conclusions from it,” emphasized Hütter.
Thurams director Roland Virkus meanwhile announced progress in contract negotiations. “With Patrick Herrmann we are in very good conversations. I think that we can soon announce something.”
According to the Gladbach coach, the Saxons had “a team that can do almost everything. They collected an enormous number of points in the second half of the season. The question is how many positions they will rotate on Monday after the Europa League game against Glasgow”, so Hütter.
Hütter was in conversation as a national coach of Austria
As has now become known, Hütter was also a candidate for the coaching position of the Austrian national team.
“They also spoke to me. I communicated that in the club,” said the Austrian. “Of course that’s a great honor. But that’s not an issue for me. I have a contract here in Mönchengladbach.”
The Austrian Football Association presented Ralf Rangnick as the new national coach and successor Franco Fodas. “It came a little surprising for me. I would not have thought that Ralf would ultimately do that. Now something else will come to the national team. But that’s a very good solution,” said Hütter.
