Hütter and Eberl will work together at Gladbach in the future
Football coach Adi Hütter has not anchored an exit clause in his three-year contract with his future club Borussia Mönchengladbach. This was confirmed by Gladbach's sports director Max Eberl, who loses his previous coach Marco Rose to Borussia Dortmund due to an exit clause and instead, thanks to an exit clause, lost Hütter from his next opponent, Eintracht Frankfurt.
“I'm already someone who says: exit clauses mean clarity. But of course I'm happy when my employees don't have a clause and when a coach is as clearly committed as Adi,” said Eberl on Thursday.
Eberl does not consider the moral discussion that has arisen to be appropriate. “You should be careful with convictions and accusations. We understand the fans and the disappointment, but you can discuss it objectively. No one is upset with players when they have a clause or leave their future open for a long time,” said the 47-year-old . “Nobody complained to us when Marco made use of his clause. Now we have participated.”
Basically he is happy “that the news is out now. Some clubs are still looking for coaches, so I'm glad I got out of the carousel,” said Eberl. After the final details had been clarified at the beginning of the week, it was the wish of “everyone involved” not to withhold the message until after the duel on Saturday (3:30 p.m. / live Sky). “We didn't want to fool around, we wanted to create facts,” said Eberl.
Rose assured that the duel with his successor was “nothing unusual” for him. “In the overall constellation, it makes it more spectacular for people around the world and for the media,” said the Saxon who, like Hütter from Vorarlberg, won the double as coach of Red Bull Salzburg. “But we prepare for a game as normal.”
