The Borussia is still on a sporting downward slide after the deserved 2: 3 in Leipzig and will have to stretch tremendously under the outgoing coach Marco Rose in order to make the rest of the current season somehow positive. But the question of the successor on the sidelines also occupies those responsible, two of the rumored candidates seem to fall out of the raffle.

So far, Borussia has had several names on the list of potential successors to still-coach Marco Rose, but it seems that this selection is becoming increasingly thin. After Salzburg coach Jesse Marsch told Sky that he had "heard nothing from Gladbach and I would like to say very clearly that my focus is 100 percent on the team here. The door is closed. I work here in Salzburg - period", falls the US-Americans at least for an early planning security out of the grid.

"Gladbach is always dangerous.

The Swiss Gerardo Seoane, who recently threw the Leverkusen from the EL with YB Bern, should not fit the requirements of Borussia's sporting director Max Eberl due to his personality and his preferred style of play, according to Sport Bild. "My credo is: not to find the best coach, but to find the coach that best suits Gladbach," were Eberl's words at the press conference for Rose's official announcement of the move to Dortmund. In addition, according to the picture, Seoane should also be considered a potential successor to Sebastian Hoeneß, who is criticized at Hoffenheim.

While the name Florian Kohfeldt persists, a relatively clear announcement has now also come from Frankfurt. In his statement on the rumors of an offer from Gladbach, Eintracht trainer Adi Hütter even refrained from an often-heard formulation.

The timing for the announcement of Marco Rose's departure from Mönchengladbach couldn't have been much worse.

Hütter has little reason to change - statements leave little room for maneuver

Apart from the fact that Hütter is currently reaping the fruits of his many years of work in Frankfurt and may even be represented in the Champions League in the coming season, the Austrian has emphasized in the past that he could only be weak if there was an offer from a top European club - Gladbach is currently less likely to be in this category.

"I'm not dealing with that at all now. I'm so involved in this topic that I don't care about anything else. I think it would be fatal to worry about it now", said Hütter of the NZZ to the rumors of a takeover of the coaching position in Gladbach.

At Sky90, the 51-year-old was even clearer: "I stay and do not concern myself with any speculations," Hütter was quoted as saying. It is noticeable that, unlike Niko Kovac, he did without phrases like "Stand now" at the time. Hütter is known for clear statements and continuity in his actions, so his commitment to unity should be sound.

Thus, in addition to Kohfeldt, a return of Lucien Favre and a commitment of the still circulating Ajax trainer Erik ten Hag remain on the list spread by the media. Ultimately, however, it would not be surprising if Eberl - as with his player transfers - conjures up a "surprise candidate" who will be able to clean up the expected Gladbach shambles from the coming season.

Gladbach is losing importance among its own fans. .
Many fans of Borussia Mönchengladbach will also have noticed the bankruptcy against Leverkusen with a shrug. There is probably nothing more alarming for a large traditional club than if its supporters do not care. This is currently the case with foals, at least until the end of the season. © Provided by 90min Gladbach's north curve filled with cardboard spectators.
