Because of Max Eberl: Stefan Effenberg attacks the Gladbach boss

Two days after the emotional resignation of sports director Max Eberl, Stefan Effenberg harshly criticized Borussia Mönchenggladbach’s President Rolf Königs.

“Actually, such a man in such a management position has lost nothing when he treats people like this,” said the former national player in the “double pass” on “Sport1” about the Gladbach boss.

The 80-year-old king had caused negative headlines at the press conference on Friday with clumsy and empathetic statements towards the resigned Eberl (“We did everything to keep him, to turn him around”).

Effenberg, who played for Gladbach from 1987 to 1990 and from 1994 to 1998, was stunned. “This statement is catastrophic and goes completely in the wrong direction,” rumbled the 53-year-old: “He obviously didn’t understand how to deal with such things. I would have thought and expected something different from a man of his age with his life experience .”

Eintracht Frankfurt’s board spokesman Axel Hellmann still sees chances that Eberl will return to the Bundesliga stage at some point.

“I think he’ll fill up the tank again and then he’ll come back. With endless commitment in Gladbach he wrote one of the greatest success stories of the last ten years. It gets on your bones,” emphasized the 50-year-old.

No contract talks between Max Eberl and Gladbach yet

Borussia Mönchengladbach has not yet spoken to Eberl about the details of the separation. “We haven’t even talked about contracts yet,” said Vice President Rainer Bonhof in the “double pass”.

The official continues: “First we have to respect Max Eberl’s situation and not the contractual things. Everything else is pending.”

Eberl’s contract with the five-time German champions runs until 2026.
