Eintracht trainer Oliver Glasner: “We mustn’t be on cloud nine now”

At the end of the afternoon practice session, the players hit a few more penalties on goal. Oliver Glasner (47) also grabbed the ball – and failed. Hopefully no omen for Saturday’s game against Hertha (3:30 p.m.).

Against the Berliners, it is for Eintracht to make the sensational victory at Bayern really valuable. And then when the next three is up against Hertha. The coach had made that clear to everyone in Munich.

Glasner’s goal: sharpen the senses. Partying is okay, but not for too long.

The Austrian on BILD: “For me it is crucial not to let yourself be driven by emotions, even in daily life. It is just as important to me that my gaze is always directed forward. We mustn’t allow ourselves to be dragged down by what was before. Or, in the opposite case, do not believe that we are only floating on cloud nine. After a defeat we mustn’t think we can’t do anything and after a victory we can’t think that we are invincible. “

Because Eintracht has experienced twice in the recent past that this can backfire quickly with a success against Bayern: In spring 2021, when after the 2-1 at home there was a surprising bankruptcy at relegation candidate Bremen (1: 2). And in autumn 2019, when the 5: 1 gala was followed by a negative series with only one point out of seven games.

Glasner: “Eintracht have had a few bad experiences with victories against Bayern. We want to prevent that now. “

Glasner does not see the unrest at Hertha with the quarrel between coach Pal Dardai and star Kevin-Prince Boateng or the many bankruptcies at the start of the season as an advantage. His reasoning: “We weren’t used to success before the game in Munich, and it wasn’t an advantage for Bayern.”
