Borussia Mönchengladbach pulled off a surprising candidate from Daniel Farke’s hat. The new man on the sidelines should guide the club from the lower Rhine to stable paths. To do this, the FARC must first form a team with the Foals and take the crowd with him again.
Borussia sporting director Roland Verkuss said of the new coach, who has signed a long-term contract at Gladbach until 2025.
FARC brought in his coaching staff
For the Farc, Gladbach is the first stop in the German Senate. The East Westphalian-born, who was under contract with SV Leipstadt, Borussia Dortmund II, Norwich City and most recently FK Krasnodar, has not been the first choice of foals. But after Lucien Favre was canceled, Virkus quickly got to work.
He explained, “He understands people and this is what Borussia Mönchengladbach will do well now. After Favre was canceled, there were not many people on their list, but Fark wanted to work with his coaching team in the Bundesliga for a long time.” sky Reporter Marlon Erlbacher.
FARC will bring its entire team with assistant coaches Christopher John and Edmund Reimer to Mönchengladbach. It was important for a business administration graduate to come to an association where he could bring close people with him.
Many challenges await
The Gladbach players also need confidence urgently. “After a season that has seen a lot of deterioration, stability must come first again. The departure of Max Eberl has hurt the club a lot. In addition, the separation from Marco Rose a year ago and only one season with Adi Hütter, where he ended up in a very bad mood is why FARC’s first task is to gather the team again and form a team.”
subordinate sky The reporter describes Fark as a coach who “is practical. You call him at night and wake him up, he’ll help you out and always give you a plan. He’s incredibly authentic.” In a year of turmoil, the new coach has to replace Matthias Ginter, who immigrated to SC Freiburg, at the center of the defence. Since transportation options are financially limited, the FARC will have to rely primarily on local talent and talent.
“He can develop young players, but he also gets along well with experienced players. No matter who you ask, Farc is very popular. Now he finally has a chance to show what he can do. I’m sure he’s pushing through his shoes, he can be very successful. , “Erlbacher is convinced at 45 years old.
Varkey with a clear football philosophy
Under the leadership of its predecessor Hütter, the traditional club from the Lower Rhine managed to only finish 10th last season, before the Foals landed in the number-one table ten times in a row. So, sporting director Ferkus called for a return to old success patterns: “We want to focus more on Borussia’s exemplary approach to football. That’s why we need more ball possession, game intelligence, stability and activity.”
This philosophy fits perfectly with the football FARC wants to see in action. The coach likes to see the ball in his ranks, and if he loses the ball, he relies on quick counter-pressing in the opponent’s half. “Plus, he can be very emotional and boisterous when he needs to be,” said Erlbacher. “The FARC gives his players a lot and can always respond to the course of the game by making changes. That’s what makes him special.”
Farc has already proven in his career that he can get a lot from his teams. Twice ascended to the Premier League with Norwich as the tournament champion. With Lippstadt, the coach was able to upgrade from Oberliga Westfalen to Regionalliga West. In this league he was runner-up with the BVB Reserve. Overall, he has averaged 1.63 points per game in 404 competitive games in his coaching career.
Solidarity with fans is important
In order to be successful in Borussia, FARC must above all be able to win the ranks of the masses. Over the past season, they’ve moved more and more away from the team. In addition, Hütter’s predecessor had a hard time in the Gladbach environment. FARC needs a good start to immediately get the support of all the fans and officials.
“He will then try to move forward in football, which inspires the fans as well. You have to take this with you. There were a lot of bad matches at home at Borussia Park last season. A lot of fans will not look back fondly. And that is what you want to change. Now,” Erlbacher explained.
FARC should write a similar success story in Gladbach as Favre did a few years ago.
