When the Gladbach pros on Wednesday (6.30 p.m. / Sky) against Adi Hutter’s ex-club Eintracht Frankfurt are as combative as their coach – then maybe there is a way out of the clapping crisis!

After the three mega bankruptcies with 14 goals conceded, Hütter promises all doubters: “I’m not a guy who falls over in a headwind. You have to get through such a difficult time – and stand straight! We will remain brave and continue our offensive game. Everything else is not our way! “
Hütter is also aware that a lot has to change very quickly.
The coach admits: “I’m not talking nicely here. If the game allows it, my team has to be able to run 120 kilometers. But the sprints are also important to me, we must never again approach the opponent as half-heartedly as in Leipzig. “
Hütter is fighting for his job – but is his team fighting too?
Some players are already thinking of other clubs – but the coach does not accept that as an excuse: “Everyone has to reset their ego now. It’s all about getting two positive results against Frankfurt and Hoffenheim by Christmas! “
But especially against “his” Eintracht, where Hütter had three great years, it should be tough!
Frankfurt’s ex-striker and TV presenter Jan Åge Fjørtoft (54) warns: “For the Eintracht fans it is the most important game of the season, they absolutely want to win it. Understandable, because you mustn’t forget: Adi has left US. Many still see this as a breach of trust and are bitterly disappointed. “
