VfB-Coach Weinzierl recognizes “positive development”

On two occasions, VfB Stuttgart, a national football league member, has recently left the square against both Borussia Dortmund and 1899 Hoffenheim with 0:4. The effect of changing trains is blurred. Nevertheless, the new man at Schwaben, Markus Weinzierl, has great hope of leaving the descent zone soon.

“I assume that we will achieve our goals, with or without a series,” explained Markus Weinzierl in the interview with “Image” and thus played on a series of 13 games without defeat, which he once placed as coach of Schalke 04 in season 2016/17.

At that time even the first five Bundesliga games with the royal flowers were lost. Therefore, he does not want to deal with his personal starting balance: “Because the first games are not the only decisive ones.”

The 43-year-old is optimistic about the coming weeks.” In the first two games I saw a positive development. The first half in Hoffenheim was the best half of the VfB this season,”said the new coach, Tayfun Korkut after the 7th. Game day replaced. However, the four opposing gates in the second half would have shown the current “overall state of the team”.

Weinzierl must score points against Eintracht Frankfurt

The main focus is now on stabilizing the defensive, says Weinzierl. Yet at the same time he wants to target his team aggressively.” We wanted to show courage against Dortmund. This was punished after three minutes. But I am convinced that courage is always rewarded in the long run. And now it is said to fetch countable things in the short term.”

On Friday (20:30 o’clock) the VfB receives the uniform from Frankfurt. For winegrowers it is a game with additional meaning. After all, the former Schalke coach almost ended up with the Hessians in the summer.

“It doesn’t matter now. He is now a very good coach in Frankfurt, who has also lost his first two duty games”, says Weinzierl about his colleagues at the Unitracht, Adi Hutter.
