Unloaded and exhausted Max Eberl has left Borussia Mönchengladbach after 23 years. To say goodbye, the sports director opened his heart.
Max Eberl did not shake his tears. High-pionally and mentally completely outledged the maker from Borussia Mönchengladbach adjoined decades from his life-life football – with a courageous appearance and violent system criticism.
“I finish what my life was,” Eberl said in the Borussia park deep trouble and yet freed from a huge burden. His words were thoughtful. “I can not work for this great club because I’m sick. I’m exhausted. I just want to get out of the mill,” he explained, “I’ll just let Hape Kerkeling be just gone.”
For 23 years, Eberl had first considered the bones for Gladbach for Gladbach and since 2008 as a sports director almost all burdens trained al1. “Every defeat was also my defeat. I want to see the world, I just want to be Max Eberl. For the first time in my life I think of me,” said the 48-year-old.
The football wishes Eberl the exit from the hamster wheel of the hysteria, which also had “sick”. “You’re already insulted at Social Media, everything will be commented, the person did not say a word yet,” he complained about the events of the past 48 hours. “I may be a good example of what happens to this world.”
Eberl rank during the entire press conference with tears, he moved the club tip. “This is a crap day,” said President Rolf King, and he acknowledged: “We did not realize that this is such a strong burden on him”. Managing Director Stephan Schippers said to lose “a friend and partner”.
According to Königs, Eberl had mentioned the club tip for the first time in October. At the beginning of 2021 he had taken a break in Switzerland, but he had to cancel this premature premature because of the possible corona violations of Breel Embolo. Finally he was irritated, the mood in the Borussia Park should be worse.
Eberl made it clear that he has reported reports of his apparently internationally discussed private life. Eberl is with the Swiss Sedrina Schaller (33), which he had brought into the club as “Assistance Team Manager”. There is no “injured pride, no anger, no frustration”, it does not go to love: “Alone the person Max Eberl is exhausted and tired.”
Borussia Mönchengladbach now Buldy in the crisis
For the Borussia, the separation comes to the inert. The five-time master plays his worst season for eleven years, is in the relegation battle. Even coach Adi Hütter, which Eberl had brought for 7.5 million euros from Frankfurt, was last in the criticism.
The search for a successor is in full swing. Schalke sports director Rouven Schröder, who was a candidate in 2019 as Eberl’s “Co-Pilot”, should not be a candidate. The image newspaper brings the Gladbach ex-coach Dieter Hecking (currently sports board at the 1st FC Nuremberg) and ex-professional Martin Stranzl as a duo into the game. “We have staked the internal possibilities. We will look externally,” said kings.
How it continues with Eberl is open: He is looking for nothing as peace. “If anybody believes I do that because I want a club change – forget that,” he said. But he will not tackle the Jamesweg like Hape Kerkeling. “I do not do that, but I’m not fit enough,” he said with a approach of his well-known, always bite humor.
