… the decision:
“After good talks, we came to the decision that we would part ways amicably and that we would each go our own way. We finally made the final decision last night. We were in a very difficult situation, especially after the game in Stuttgart (2-3 after a 2-0 lead, ed.). We were in very uncomfortable spheres, but then brought ourselves back to safe territory with calmness and energy. That was the time to have more intensive talks. They were good talks in terms of content and a very respectful way of dealing with each other. I would like to thank the entire club for that.”

… the reasons for the separation:
“It’s important to do a good analysis at the end of the season. We sat down and discussed what the reasons for this season were. Everyone knows what motivated me to come to Borussia Mönchengladbach. After these many discussions and the analysis, we are came to the decision to go our separate ways. In the end, there were many points that led to the decision. I don’t want to stand in anyone’s way either. It’s a shame and I’m sorry that we didn’t meet these expectations – both on my part and also from the club – could not fulfill. Especially the two derby defeats against Cologne hurt. Otherwise the balance of the last nine games was positive.”

… his future:
“First and foremost, I’m looking forward to the holiday, to being with my family. I’ve been working for almost 14 years straight, except for the three months between the stations in Salzburg and Bern. I still have no plan for the future.”

… the conversation with the team:
“Shortly after the final whistle I informed the team before I went outside. The lads all stood up, there was a standing ovation. That really hurts again. You realize at that moment that maybe not everything is wrong It was an emotional moment for me, it gets under your skin.”

With Manu Koné, Borussia Mönchengladbach has an incredible gem

… unfulfilled promises, for example when putting together the squad, and the question of whether he might not have started in Gladbach under these conditions:
“If you’re honest, you have to say: yes. After the talks almost a year ago, I was fully convinced that I would come to Borussia Mönchengladbach. I was full of energy, full of power. Max Eberl and I had good discussions about the squad to change and bring in fresh blood. We all know that a lot of things didn’t work that way – without wanting to pee on anyone now, quite the opposite. Corona was also a factor. A lot of things just didn’t work out. Then they didn’t come either Results that we were hoping for. Basically, there is a good basis. But I think you have to try to change some things.”

… the initiated upheaval:
“That makes me particularly happy. I wasn’t afraid to go the way of the young players. I’m proud to have brought in 18-year-old boys in difficult times. In Manu Koné, for example, Borussia Mönchengladbach have an incredible jewel. He will bring a lot of joy to the club.”
