The sporting fate of the cloverlate is sealed with the descent, the game at Union Berlin on Friday evening (8:30 p.m.) is nothing more than a leak for points from Franconian perspective. Basic decisions are important. The Von Leitl reads: he leaves the Ronhof. “I made a decision,” the 44 -year -old began, and he put the emphasis on “one” later. It was very difficult for him and a process over several weeks. At the time of the Berlin, she finally betrayed it, the day after the Berlin, the day after the 1: 4 against Leverkusen and the descent.
“We have been able to spend an intensive and successful time in the past almost three and a half years,” summarized the still coach. With “We” I “mean” all employees, fans and sponsors who have contributed to the chance of success “. He expressed a “very special thanks” to sports director Rachid Azzouzi, for the trust, support and open and honest communication. With the latter, Leitl delivered a steep template, as Azzouzi had shown himself disappointed on Wednesday that Leitl’s conversations with Hannover 96 have learned about the media and not personally. On Thursday, the coach defended questions with the reference to “a meeting that is common in the industry”.
Leitl: “Everything can happen”
In Hanover, it is assumed that Leitl will become a new trainer. But he fades: “I have not given a club a promise, everything can happen.” It is quite possible that the finalization of his new commitment depends on the fact that 96 creates relegation in the 2nd division. It is considered very likely, but is not yet fixed.
A new speech is needed, a new energy, I am no longer ready.
Leitl preferred to talk about the past and the present about the future. “I did not make the decision against the SpVgg, but for myself. I proudly look back on what was achieved.” For example on the relegation in 2019, the promotion 2021 or David Raum and Anton Stach, who played below him and are now national players. Now he handed over a team that descends from the Bundesliga, but will be in their foundation and, thanks to Rachid Azzouzi, will also be well positioned in the coming season. He had decided not to want to stand in the way of a fresh start. “It takes a new speech, a new energy, I am no longer ready for that.” Honorary, but also with a tasty, Hanover was supposed to retain the relegation at the weekend and Leitl will then be presented there immediately.
Oh yes, in the end it was also about the staff: Jamie Leweling, unlike Max Christiansen, returns to Covid-19, but Jeremy Dudziak (tonsillitis) fails again, and Paul Seguin and Havard Nielsen are still missing.
