Not a dream start, but a good start towards the beginning!
Jan Zimmermann (41) made his debut as a 96 coach and scored 1-1 at second division top favorites Werder Bremen with the new coach Markus Anfang (47). After Havelse’s promotion to the 3rd division, it was Zimmermann’s first competitive game as a professional coach.
Zimbo at Sport 1: “We have to be satisfied with the performance – and we are too.”
When the coach replaced his goal scorer Marvin Ducksch (27 / “We played a very good game”) at the television microphone, he laughed and called after him: “A second goal would have been nicer …”
Ducksch missed two big chances to make it 2-1. The winning goal would have been the icing on the cake at Zimbo’s premiere. After 13th place in the preseason and many disappointing games, these reds were finally having fun again.
Zimbo was also in a good mood, but doesn’t want to overestimate the 1: 1: “We take a lot of positive things with us. It was a first step – nothing more and nothing less. We can build on this performance. “
According to his own statement, the trainer wasn’t nervous at all: “Really not. As a coach, you can’t do that much on matchday. You put yourself in the hands of your players. I was relaxed and full of confidence. “
The team justified that.
