The head coach and Sporting director of Gladbach had a press-conference on Friday night. Marco Rose is very optimistic for the upcoming game in the Bundesliga.
Squad is healthy and ready for a Koln game
Marco Rose said that team members are ready to play against Koln. He said that there could be minor issues with the injuries. At the same time, Marco noted that all the players are fit and can play against Koln. Lazaro trained well for a whole week and can play against Koln in the starting line-up. Rocco Reitz is on the way to a big return in Bundesliga. He trained with the main squad for three days in a row, so the coach will decide his fate before the clash.
Derby against Koln
Rose said that players do not need extra motivation from the head coach. Gladbach’s coach is sure that players already have enough consistency and persistence inside that they can win derby at any cost. He noted that Gladbach players know what’s on the stake. They are not leaders of the Bundesliga but keep winning the matches like this could change everything in the table of the league.
Match will be interesting. Marco Rose said that Koln has built up a very interesting attacking football in the last few weeks. Rose admitted that Koln’s new tactic is not dull and boring. Coach believes that Koln can bring lots of problems to the defenders of Gladbach. That’s why Marco wants Gladbach players to be ready for everything. The head coach admitted that they have already talked about every type of scenario at the pitch. Marco Rose believes that Koln’s new strategy may be very tough for the midfield-defense line of Borussia. Match will be played at the home-stadium of Borussia. It will be an intense game and both teams will try to take three points.
