Trainer Achim Beierlorzer has made no mistake about the discussions about a possible leave in case of a derby defeat on Sunday at Fortuna Dusseldorf (15:30 o’clock).
“It is not an end game, but a very, very important game,” said the Franke on Friday. The partial panic in the surroundings “did not reach him because I only skipped the headlines and am a reason for being a positive person,” said the 51-year-old.
The 2:3-Blamage in the DFB-Cup at the quarterlist 1. FC Saarbrucken on Tuesday would have been a “neck blow”. “Of course this is frustrating because we cannot let this happen to us,” said Beierlorzer: “But we must not concern ourselves with negative things.” In individual conversations with players, he has felt in many places a “first-right-now” mood: “This defiant reaction has I liked it very much.”
Perhaps on Sunday the Birger stray missing since the middle of September will return, whose operated knee showed no reaction after an operation at U21 during the week. Lasse Sobiech and Matthias Bader are also available after injuries. The use of Florian Kainz is questionable due to a heel injury.
Beierlorzer sees Veh’s resignation allowed
Beierlorzer does not want to be distracted from the announced resignation of Managing Director Armin Veh in the struggle for class retention. ” People come and people go. This is the football business,”said the 51-year-old,”I don’t let it affect me. You have to hide that. We absolutely have to focus on Sunday. This is the task of me and every player.”
Working with Veh would not change anything for him either. Why? asked Beierlorzer: “Armin supports us as before full pot, both the coach team and the players.” Veh had announced his farewell on Thursday at the end of the season.
