Bundesliga: The VfB analysis: Which argument Labbadia still has
The VfB analysis: Which argument Labbadia still has
It wasn’t all bad against Union. But are his team’s convincing 45 minutes enough for Bruno Labbadia to stay? The analysis should be about “everything”.
At least one argument can Bruno Labbadia in the fight for his job as coach of Bundesliga bottom VfB Stuttgart this Sunday. “We can take something from the game. Not just a short phase of the game, but the whole first half,” said sports director Fabian Wohlgemuth after Stuttgart’s 0: 3 yesterday at Union Berlin.
Nevertheless, he had avoided a clear confession to the coach, under whose leadership VfB won only one of the last eleven league games and slipped to last place. The “Bild” and also the broadcaster “Sky” promptly reported an imminent separation.
Is it now threatening?
Wohlgemuth fueled speculation with his statements and resigned for him Sunday an analysis that is “about all things”. Whether the 57-year-old Labbadia will still have a chance next Wednesday in the quarter-finals of the DFB Cup, whether he will still be sitting on the VfB bench in the relegation duel against VfL Bochum on Sunday next week – Wohlgemuth left it open. In the frustration that evening there will be no personnel debate, he said.
That should be the day for today. Labbadia had already coached VfB between 2010 and 2013. Now he is threatened with the end of all things after the 100th game as coach of Stuttgart in the Bundesliga.
In the end, it’s not always the fault of the coach, said goalkeeper Fabian Bredlow. He is not the team, just a player and he wants to continue with Labbadia, stressed Bredlow. “Everyone is now well advised to sweep their own front door after the game today and see what they could have done better,” said Bredlow.
