The analysis of frightening blood resignation against Glasgow on Thursday fell in detail. “That took a little longer,” a tormented coach Marco Rose reported two days later. Video sequences of game situations and entire game phases were shown, players’ opinions belonged. “I believe that we have triggered a few things,” says Rose: “This is sometimes unpleasant. It is often talked about the attitude and mentality. It is a phase in which we are particularly queried.” And since the coach wants to show consequence: “I stay uncomfortable, because after this phase we will have made a step forward.”
The first step will succeed without Erling Haaland and Manuel Akanji on Sunday (5.30 pm, live! At frightening blood) against Borussia Mönchengladbach. His ex-club attests Rose, the “phase of uncertainty” is over, he knew, “how much force can develop them”. Therefore, “we want to occur differently.”
Does the BVB Leverkusen’s steep template uses?
And this also means not to invite the opponent with simple ball losses, as it was the case with the 2: 4 against Glasgow before each counterpart. That had pointed to Mats Hummels then clearly, from his coach he got backing. “Mats meant we lose balls too easy,” Rose believes and speaks passports that only work on the console: “We play PlayStation. In real football, that can not work.” Roses demand: “We have to become clearer there, cleaner, serious.”
Then the game against Mönchengladbach can become another big step towards the minimum destination of the Champions League qualification: After the defeat of Bayer Leverkusen on Friday, BVB would have in three points with a victory eight points ahead.
