19 Bundesliga games, 22 points, an embarrassing end in the DFB Cup: Borussia Mönchengladbach has had a season to forget so far. If there is no liberation against Union Berlin on Saturday (3:30 p.m.), turbulent days threaten.
The fact that after the sobering course of the season in Gladbach is no longer sunshine is no longer a question for reporter veteran Marcel Reif.

The trainer himself is aware that there is a lot going on: “It’s the most difficult situation in my 13-year job,” admitted Hütter on Friday before the game against Union. Although he felt “a lot of trust within the club”, he also knew that the situation had to improve quickly, the Austrian continued.
Especially since the backing from the club knows limits according to “Bild”. In the event of a clear bankruptcy against Union Berlin, sports director Max Eberl will have to make “hard decisions”. These could affect the stars on the lawn, but also Hütter.
