The outgoing sports director Bruno Hübner sees Roger Schmidt as a suitable coach for Eintracht Frankfurt. “I am no longer involved in the search for a coach,” said Hübner in a virtual media round: “But Roger is an absolute expert, a top coach and an offensive fanatic. He lives football. He would be a coach who I could well imagine working for Unity. “
The Hessians are currently looking for a successor to Adi Hütter, who will move to league rivals Borussia Mönchengladbach in the summer. In addition to Schmidt, who is currently still working at PSV Eindhoven, Oliver Glasner (VfL Wolfsburg) and Sandro Schwarz (Dynamo Moscow) are also candidates.
“Everyone in charge is doing a great job at the moment and I’m sure that in the end the right thing will come out,” said Hübner. The 60-year-old stops at Eintracht at the end of the season at his own request.
The departure of Hütter and sports director Fredi Bobic will not change anything about this decision, emphasized Hübner: “I’ve had that in my head for a long time and I don’t want to revise that either. We are leaving a very well-tended field, the newcomers can continue this work seamlessly . “
