Hanover wants to get rid of the red lantern quickly
Thomas Doll has been in the spotlight of the Bundesliga for over ten years.
So the situation is: At least as bleak as the 1. FC Nuremberg, which will be a guest in the HDI-Arena on Saturday. Thanks to the 1-1 draw against Werder Bremen, the club handed over the Red Lantern from the Bundesliga to the Lower Saxony, which received the debut of their new coach Thomas Doll with 0: 3 against RB Leipzig. It was the fourth loss in a row for 96, who had waited for a victory for nine games and last scored on December 19 at 1: 1 in Freiburg. The hopeful optimism after the change of coach threatens to disappear quickly.
Revelation at HSV: The grades of the club professionals
With the first shot on goal in injury time, an attacking completely harmless club in Hamburg loses. Although the HSV could not score many great chances, an inattentive situation in the defense of Nuremberg, but always enough for a deserved victory of the Hanseatic League. These are the comments from the club professionals!
impressive: Not many officials from the top of a professional club keep it: Martin Child is – with a break of a year – since September 26, 1997 President of Hannover 96th The entrepreneur of the hearing aid may call himself the longest-serving club chairman of the Bundesliga, even as de facto Hoffenheim boss Peter Hofmann is in office for another year. But when a child came into the spotlight of the Bundesliga, the TSG still played in the club competition.
Expand: Everything in principle. Just like the club, Hannover won twice and scored only 18 goals in 20 games – at least one more than the Swiss franc. "Belly back and desolate in front", said the "kicker" after the debacle against Leipzig, the fifth home defeat in a row. This rating also matches the impressions of most previous games. Doll admitted in shock last Friday: "There was not enough to beat us." Obviously, his protégés must do everything to prevent the sixth Bundesliga degradation of Hannover 96.
In focus: He did not have many experts on the bill because Hannover was looking for a successor to fire on January 27th. Andre Breitenreiter: Thomas Doll had finally disappeared from the Bundesliga scene for more than ten years. His successes with Ferencvaros Budapest in this country only insiders observed. The eloquent ex-national player – is his anger speech of 2008 as coach of Dortmund ("Because I laugh") undefeated and must shake the completely insecure 96-kicker.
The first leg: The world was still in good shape with the 1. FCN: after the deserved 2-0 victory – the first in the Bundesliga after four and a half years – the climber gained the eighth place. With an initially strong, more than 90 minutes of good performance, the impression was that the club could keep up with the higher house. Joker Törles Knöll was the winner of the match against the Lower Saxony, for which the relegation began on 22 September. In the 73rd minute substitute for Virgil Misidjan, Waldemar Anton (75.) pushed in the goal of the club striker himself, two minutes later he closed himself with the decisive 2-0.
Who / what is new? The huge transfer coupe in the form of the Japanese Shinji Kagawa Hannover 96 was unsuccessful – the ex-Dortmunder decided after promising negotiations to Besiktas Istanbul – but a few transfer activities were the sleazy Lower Saxony thanks to a private investor but possible: the former Fürth attacking man Nicolai Müller (Frankfurt) and defender Kevin Akpoguma (Hoffenheim) were loaned, also returned striker's own Jonathas from Corinthians Sao Paulo. For goalkeeper Philipp Tschauner there will be no reunion with the 1. FCN tomorrow: he will now guard the goal of the second division FC Ingolstadt 04.
Or else? This is certainly a rarity: a siblings couple has been named athlete of the year 2019 in Hanover. Anna-Lena and Niclas Füllkrug were allowed to party side by side on the stage of the Aegi Theater. Anna-Lena plays just as well as her in Nuremberg, the famous brother Niclas football on December 96. The game is 26 years old on the way and certainly does not want as many as three points against the club. ,,
