Hannover 96: Sports director Marcus Mann gives Jan Zimmermann backing

The names sound like a top game. But both clubs are currently miles away from the top.

Duel of the crisis giants!

Hannover 96 fell to 14th place after five league games without a win. Only bottom of the line Ingolstadt (7) scored fewer goals than the Reds (9).

Düsseldorf won only one of the last five games (3: 1 against Karlsruhe) in the league and cup, and with 15 points is closer to the relegation ranks than the top 3. “Of course, I also look a bit at the situation in Düsseldorf,” says Jan Zimmermann . The 96 coach is “very confident” that he will be able to build on the 3-0 cup.

Fortuna colleague Christian Preusser (37) hopes to get revenge for the cup and taunts the direction of the Reds: “It may be that they come at the right time.”

Both coaches are under a lot of pressure, even when the trust has been expressed to both: Preusser by Fortuna managing director Klaus Allofs, carpenter first from Boss Martin Kind, then yesterday also from Marcus Mann (37).

The 96 sports director shortly before departure: “Jan is and remains our trainer, regardless of the outcome in Düsseldorf. He has our full backing. “

The desire to get it done together is great in Düsseldorf and Hanover. In the event of further failures, however, the job guarantee is unlikely to be worth much.

Duel of the crisis giants!

When the Reds were relegated in 2019, the goal was: immediate re-promotion. Düsseldorf followed a year later in the 2nd division and wanted to get up again immediately. Both clubs failed.

“We mustn’t lose our nerve,” emphasizes Mann and even sees his team as having an advantage in the crisis. Man: “Our opponent has a similar series to ours. It is important to run up with a broad chest. “
