Gladbach shoots Hoffenheim
At the end of a disappointing season, Borussia Mönchengladbach shot his frustration from the soul - Adi Hütter may still no longer return to the coaching bench. The Rhinelanders won 5: 1 (3: 1) against TSG Hoffenheim on the last match day, and Hütter's last game could have been as a coach of the Borussia.
At least that suggests that there are agreement. The club, it is said there, look around for possible successors after just a season together.
On Saturday, the Austrian saw a TSGing meaningless victory. Lars Stindl (26.), Alassane Plea (44th, penalty), Jonas Hofmann (45.+1/68.) And Breel Embolo (53.) turned the game for the Gladbacher. Andrej Kramaric (3rd) had previously met for Hoffenheim.
Borussia, launched with European Cup ambitions, ended the season in tenth place, just behind Hoffenheim. Both teams will not play internationally in the coming season.
In Gladbach, the relationship between Hütter and parts of the team had been difficult for a while, on Friday there were now concrete rumors about an early end of the collaboration.
The association is actively exploring the market, although Hütter's contract is still running until 2024 - this is only partly on the TSGy, disappointing season, because the climate in the cabin is also a problem.
Immediately after kick -off, the team of this theory seemed to give new food. Two minutes and 33 seconds were played, the guest had already loosely combined to 1-0, Kramaric pushed completely freely from a short distance. The audience first saw a Borussia who ran behind.
TSG Hoffenheim with summer football
However, the defensive performance of the TSG also looked more and more after summer football. At first Stindl's compensation was preceded by several mistakes, then Hoffenheim's defense chief Kevin Vogt committed an almost clumsy foul on Embolo, Plea secured the penalty.
Even before the break, Hofmann overcame Oliver Baumann from an acute angle, shortly after the restart, Embolo then appeared in front of the TSG goalkeeper and converted with Lufer.
Mönchengladbach now - together with the audience - had fun playing, Hoffenheim, on the other hand, lacked the drive in view of the clear intermediate stand. And many promotions continued to look carefree: Kevin Akpoguma extended a ball with a head unexpectedly towards his own goal. Hofmann stood there, however, and just had to insert.
