Gladbach caught up six points on Borussia Dortmund in the new year, six on RB Leipzig and even nine points on Bayer Leverkusen.
Actually, the games against his ex-club Mainz 05 were always very pleasant for Marco Rose. Under his direction, the Gladbach team won all three previous games against Rheinhessen. This time the situation in the first of his last 13 Bundesliga games as the head coach of the Elf from Niederrhein is a little different. The disappointment about his early departure also angered many fans, but they will not be able to express their displeasure in the stadium on Saturday (3.30 p.m. / Sky). "I understand the disappointment and can totally understand it up to a certain point," said Borussia's coach.
The move to Borussia Dortmund in the summer, announced at the beginning of the week, was no longer surprising, but not everyone understands Rose's decision. «I don't know whether Marco's decision was really the right one. In a year and a half, he developed the Gladbach team into a real Bundesliga top team that can still achieve a lot in the future with outstanding players such as Lars Stindl, Marcus Thuram and Florian Neuhaus. So why the change to BVB? ", Said old Borussia player Berti Vogts the Internet portal" t-online ". And the chance of winning a title in the coming years is even greater with Gladbach than with Dortmund, according to Vogts.

The team is also aware of the consequences of Rose's decision. “Of course we notice that there is unrest coming from outside. This is completely normal after such a decision, ”said captain Lars Stindl to the club portal“ borussia.de ”. The team is already disappointed, noted Borussia's captain. Nevertheless, there was an acceptance for the coach's decision. However, the 32-year-old does not see the season's goals at risk in this important phase. «The coach is ambitious enough to want to achieve the maximum here. Regardless of him, we players are just as ambitious. We'll see what opportunities we still have this season. "
Regardless of Rose's promise not to lure Gladbach players to BVB, the transfer rumors about important players like Matthias Ginter, Denis Zakaria and Florian Neuhaus continue. According to information from “Bild”, Jonas Hofmann has also moved into the focus of European top clubs. The new Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel is said to be interested in a commitment from Hofmann. The 28-year-old, who also played ten Bundesliga games for Mainz, is still under contract with Borussia until June 30, 2023 and should not have an exit clause.
