Currently people are left nicely in the dark. I say "nicely" as this means that Max Eberl does what he does best - he's looking for a good solution and he keeps quiet about it, which is the best way to go about things like contract talks IMO.Rastatter hat geschrieben: It was a shock that Favre quit, but I´m sure Max Eberl and Borussia will find an intelligent coach for our team. Names are a lot around, from Klopp to Keller and Schaaf. But what Borussia really need is not a motivator alone, we need a coach with a match philosophy like Favre has and this is very difficult, as you can imagine.
The names that are mentioned in either media or the forum here are pure speculation, as there have been no names mentioned by any people on the Gladbach board so far - as a matter of fact, Max Eberl very cleverly evaded all questions by journalists and didn't give them either a time frame ("I could present someone fast, or I could take time until winter"), and he also left it open whether he'd go for someone who is currently with or without a contract.
My personal favourites would be the JKs (and I don't mean "just kidding"):
- Jürgen Klopp, whose agent may have turned down any connections to Gladbach on the very first day Lucien Favre's resignation was published (which I mainly considered a move to shoo away nosy journalists, though), and
- Jens Keller, who was much maligned by the media, but who has actually a lot of the qualities needed for the Gladbach job, if you think about it rationally.
