1. FSV Mainz 05 | As hard, Christian Heidel fell the change to FC Schalke 04

After 24 years at the 1st FSV Mainz 05 Christian Heidel joined FC Schalke in the summer of 2016. The manager now reminded of the change.

“It was a difficult decision. For me, at the time at that time,” Heidel said to the “picture” newspaper and added: “I have left my baby, even if the club was long out of the baby age.”

Particularly hard were the games against Mainz, as Heidel stressed, “even if I won five out of six, or maybe that’s why it’s just because of that,” says the 58-year-old.

Between 2016 and 2019, today’s Mainz manager served FC Schalke 04 as a Mainzs board. If the reasons for the crash of the scarce is discussed, heidels name also falls again and again.

Critics intend to have introduced the decline with unfortunate personnel decisions. Why he became the Buhmann, the most directed decision maker can not explain to this day.

“We were in 2018 with eight points ahead of Vizemister, then loosely came through the group stage of the Champions League, had the highest sales and profit of club history,” heidel made in winter 2021 opposite the “WAZ” clear.

The former car dealer continues: “But we had five difficult months in the Bundesliga, but also because of an incredible injury, were eleventh – which is not easy to convey to Schalke.”

Klopp setting as a “craziest decision”

In the “picture” interview, heidel also spoke about the best decision he has taken as a functional: “At the same time, that was the craziest: the player Jürgen Klopp to make the coach, at the Rose Monday 2001.”

Klopp is today coach of the FC Liverpool, won with the Reds 2019 and the Champions League Final and is still “a friend for life” for Heidel.

Which Atalanta Bergamo does it get to do Bayer?

Victories against Juventus and Naples, a little later leaving in the Champions League group stage and a tower 1: 4-bankruptcy against the Roma: These four weeks between November and December last year, the season of Atalanta Bergamo describe symbol. Sometimes the same as the previous year’s resources of series A for a goaly spectacle, sometimes there is goatin draws – and sometimes it then sets down as well as recently against descent chandidate Cagliari. Atalanta is a wound bag in this season.

It is all the more difficult to assess the ex-Club of Robin Gosens before the eighth-finishing leg against Bayer Leverkusen. Another proof? While the Bergamaskens over the past three years, in addition to third place, always anticipated the best offensive of Italy, “La Dea” lags behind in this season. Only rank six and the fifthmists goals in Series A stand for the team of coach Gian Piero Gasperini to be booked. Only three league victories arrive Bergamo this year.

Injury, molding low, finish – Atalantas offense worries

At least the stagnant offensive – actually Atala’s biggest weapon – can be explained more or less simply: All three of the best scorers from the past season are either injured, except form or do not play in Bergamo anymore. Gosens (eleven hits) changed in winter to Inter Milan. Duvan Zapata (15) Laborates for several weeks at a muscle fabric and is missing in both games against Leverkusen. Luis Muriel (22) is not the old one after prolonged injury. In addition, Atala’s magic feet Josip Illicic has not been playing since January due to mental problems.

The fact that the most accurate attacker of this season (nine gates) are also fails with Zapata, the situation makes the situation not easier. Last but not least, “TuttoSport” was associated with Werder-Torjäger Marvin Ducksch with the North Italians.

At once meeting defenders

In recent weeks, but surprisingly different players turned out to real Goalgetttern and made for three victories in the past five games. In the league a double pack of midfielder Teun Koopmeiers helped 4-0 against Sampdoria at the end of February, to finish the durst track of five winless games. In the K.O. Round Play-offs against Olympiakos Piraeus in the Europa League shone in the first leg (2: 1) Defender Berat Djimsiti and in the second leg (3-0) Ruslan Malinovskyi with two goals each.

Now in the second round of Bayer Leverkusen is coming to the door. The dress rehearsal against the AS Roma failed the Bergamasken with 0: 1. But at least one shows the season Atalantas: With Bergamo is always expected. A wonder bag flat.

Wolfsburger Frust instead of a sensation I know what you did not do last summer

The England national football team has actually represented England in worldwide football since the very first international match in 1872. It is managed by The Football Association (FA), the governing body for football in England, which is affiliated with UEFA and also comes under the international jurisdiction of globe football’s governing body FIFA. England contends in the three major worldwide events disputed by European countries: the FIFA Globe Cup, the UEFA European Championship, as well as the UEFA Nations League.
England is the joint earliest national team in football. It played worldwide’s initial global football suit in 1872, versus Scotland. England’s house ground is Wembley Stadium, London, and its training headquarters is St George’s Park, Burton upon Trent. The team’s manager is Gareth Southgate.
England is just one of eight countries to have won the Globe Cup. England has qualified for the World Cup 15 times. It won the 1966 World Cup Final, an event it likewise organized, as well as ended up fourth in both 1990 and 2018. England has never ever won the European Championship, with its finest efficiency to date being runners-up in 2020. As a constituent nation of the UK, England is not a member of the International Olympic Committee and also so does not complete at the Olympic Gaming. England is presently the only team to have won the World Cup yet not won any type of major continental title at senior degree, as well as the only non-sovereign entity to have actually won the World Cup.

The initial situation appeared better than ever. VFL Wolfsburg had recovered from the chaotic years in the cellar table, qualified last May for the first time since 2015 again for the Champions League, could therefore despite the Corona pandemic and its impact on the football business as one of the few clubs in the Bundesliga invest so right. Barnaul, Goldschmidt, the Meccas Philipp Lukebakio, Franck, van de Even — managing director Jo erg Schmidt and sporting director Marcel Schaefer arrived tidy in the transfer market, considered the success squad together. For they had big plans: Our goal remains underlined former professional shepherd who has become the voice and face of the Wolfsburg-based leadership, that we qualify for the European Cup in the Champions League and the Cup we want for make a splash.

Now, a few months later, is no longer remained much of this project. A faulty substitution made in the Cup for the embarrassing off in the first round, the Europa end ensued. Before the disappointing crowd of 6544 spectators VFL stumbled on Wednesday night at probably the most important game of the recent club history (Florian Krefeld) from the pinnacle, finished as balanced as weak as Group G Table. Trustees pure. Furor? Funding. At the end there was only one victory at home to Salzburg (2: 1), everything else was skimmed footballing fare.

And thus the normal state in recent months. Real euphoria was already not risen around when it comes to re-awakened giant, almost traditionally always sets itself a leg just really into running. 2009 after the Championship and 2015 after the German Cup victory and the runner-up title went then each almost to the second league. And now? Currently, threatens the gray mediocrity. Even the last successful season ended only manageable cheerful despite the premier class qualification, the chewing gum poker about the future of coach Oliver Glaser was the mood killer.

But the Austrians had around after all stills made in all interpersonal problems around the lawn for that because a team was on the court, the hurt any opponent. If his successor After Krefeld now in a three-day cycle almost a matter begs that his team should at least bring intensity and aggressiveness on the field, then you know that recently many things broke down. The pure will against Lille, forcing the victory in this final so important? I would, I definitely wanted Krefeld talks around midnight from a phrase that says it all.

team its Spirit lost, unity, power and greed have given way

The team has lost its spirit, its unity, power and greed are gone from the squad as the air from a previously plump balloon. To push all this now Mark van Rommel in the shoes, would be far too simple. Each player has obviously struggling with himself, is far from the normal form. The bosses Schmidt and Shepherd mistaken fatal when choosing Glaser’s successor, corrected earlier this misconception that Krefeld now barely a few weeks to straighten can. I know what you last summer did not do — that can be overwritten the previous VFL season.

The new coach puts it diplomatically: We need to remind ourselves of what can make us strong — keyword intensity. For the other play areas we have lack the automation. They are not to train in such a short time. Failures of preparation, wanted to implement its possession style of van Rommel. Unsuccessfully — while there had been players who early recognized the danger and the risk. And so the Pressing- and Umschaltmannschaft lost its force with Xavier Sch lager (torn ACL) on top of a key player — currently is the team for virtually nothing. And is apparently unable to lift themselves out of this mess. It is significant is that it is ultimately especially the 19-year-old Aster Franck, who resists the inertia in VFL game.

Krefeld: It is my job to radiate positive energy

With a view of the second half, it almost seems like an advantage that the Lower Saxony can now focus on the league. Coach Krefeld now has to save this season and be careful not to be obtained emotionally from his Welder past when he could not free himself from the negative song. The football teacher wins through the dance on only one wedding at least training sessions on the exercise place. But he also has to convince the team of his idea, he apparently does not overburden them, he has to bring the simplicity of football game at the moment. It’s my job to score positive energy and try to solve these problems, he says.

The conviction that the 39-year-old can bring the VFL back to the frontman is still there. Krefeld demands more courage in all team areas, but even chose the careful variant against Lille, with Out Warhorse and Luca Goldschmidt first only two offensive players. A few weeks ago, he recalls at the end of October, when I started here, it looked as if it could go quickly in the right direction. And now? You already realize that a few things are there, which requires some time. Time that is hardly available.
