Jan Moravek has been lacing the soccer shoes for FC Augsburg since 2012. As with the Alfred Finnbogason on Saturday, as well as in 2016, he was not enough for flowers to say goodbye. That was not due to evil will, much more due to the unclear future. Does the duo or one of the two still get a new contract or do you give your farewell performance in the 2-1 over Fürth? The two veterans had hoped for the answer weeks ago to have clarity at the end of the season. This wish was not met in the Augsburg management.
Markus Weinzierl in the cabin was confronted with the question almost every day. He could not answer them himself, he was in the same situation – held up by managing director Stefan Reuter. “In the past few weeks it was really the case that it was a big topic that there was unrest, that they asked me that the players asked themselves how to proceed,” emphasized Weinzierl. In the way the FCA, especially Reuter, dealt with the two deserved players, did not leave the coach good hair: “It is also a philosophy. Everyone has to decide for himself. He decides how he talks when he talks Talk and what he does. “
Reuter himself sees the whole topic less problematic. “It is certainly not an easy situation for the players. They both told me that they have an absolute understanding that they are still here in Augsburg for a few more days and are available for talks,” said the 55-year-old. However, an early decision has become less likely after the events of the past few days. The season analysis cannot take place as planned. On the one hand, President Klaus Hofmann, who resigned on Friday, will no longer take part in it, Weinzierl nor. Before Reuter has not found a new coach, he will hardly decide on the future of the waiting duo.
remarkable quota of Finnbogason
The 33-year-old Icelander Finnbogason and the 32-year-old Czech Moravek have to be patient. An extension should – if at all – only be very performance -related. 463 minutes of use at Moravek in the past season and only 286 at Finnbogason do not leave any scope. The attacker is most likely to have hopes for whereabouts. With two goals and one template in the few season, he even has a very remarkable quota, and he is also of great value as a leader and voice in the cabin. Especially since the poorly balanced squad is not bursting with such forces.
Perhaps both sooner or later also have enough and anticipate the decision -making chief – like Weinzierl. And the flowers? It may be available in 2028. At least the former goalkeeper Alexander Manninger (2012 to 2016) received his farewell six years after his farewell on Saturday afternoon.
