Coach Bo Svensson from the Bundesliga soccer club FSV Mainz 05 does not expect any disadvantages for his team because of his yellow card suspension and the associated grandstand seat.
He has known his assistant coach Babak Keyhanfar “for a long time. We get along very well. I have full confidence that he will solve the problem with the others,” said Svensson at the press conference: “The boys will be ready for him to walk through fire.”
He himself “does not yet know exactly” where he will watch the away game at bottom SpVgg Greuther Fürth on Saturday (3:30 p.m. / Sky). He is only not allowed to actively coach on the bench or from the stands. “Otherwise I can be with the team before the game and also at half-time,” Svensson explained the procedure.
The Dane is very self-critical because of the four yellow cards. “The fault is mine,” said the 42-year-old: “I have to improve and do some things differently. It’s obvious that it was too much. Then you have to reflect and draw some final results for yourself.”
