Coach trouble in the 3rd soccer league: Emotions ran high between the coaches when 1. FC Kaiserslautern beat FSV Zwickau 2-0 (1-0) on Saturday.
FCK coach Marco Antwerp refused to shake hands with colleague Joe Enochs. Antwerp at “MagentaSport”: “He knows what he’s always doing on the pitch and you don’t always have to go over there and shake his hand. In this case, I didn’t do it.” Enochs replied: “We’ve played him twice now and I don’t have to see him anymore.”
In addition to pursuers Lautern, leaders 1. FC Magdeburg also consolidated their position with another win, both marching in step at the top. FCM lost SV Wehen Wiesbaden 3-1 (1-1) on Saturday. The Red Devils are unbeaten in ten games.
Vain joy reigned in Magdeburg. “Of course, the win feels great. It was another very difficult game,” said FCM goalscorer Amara Conde. Next up is the top game against the four-time German champions from Kaiserslautern on Saturday. “Today I want to enjoy the game for a short time. And then we’ll deal with Kaiserslautern from Sunday,” said Magdeburg coach Christian Titz.
VfL Osnabrück struggled to a 1: 1 (0: 0) against the insolvent relegation candidate Türkgücü Munich. Waldhof Mannheim defeated promoted Viktoria Berlin 3: 2 (2: 2).
TSV Havelse left the bottom of the table with a 3-0 (1-0) win over SV Meppen. Havelse’s coach Rüdiger Ziehl said: “That was simply a good performance by my team – a willpower.” The Würzburger Kickers are the new tail light. SC Verl and Hallesche FC drew goalless.
