Eintracht Frankfurt worries about the use of their goal scorer Andre Silva before the top game against Bayern Munich.
The Portuguese was “slightly hit”, said coach Adi Hütter before the game on Saturday (3:30 p.m. in LIVETICKER): “We are doing everything we can to make him fit. He is an important person.” Silva stopped training on Wednesday due to back problems and completely stopped on Thursday.
Erik Durm is also questionable, Sebastian Rode moves into the starting line-up for Djibril Sow, who is suspended from yellow. Nevertheless, the Hessians, who have been unbeaten in ten league games, are confident in the game. “We have a phase in which we have confidence. We will show that we are not in third place in the table for nothing,” said Hütter. But “everything has to fit together to beat Bayern”.
The Austrian reacted calmly to the rumors of a possible move to Borussia Mönchengladbach in the summer. “If a stone falls somewhere and a coach leaves a club, many candidates are traded. It is okay that my name is there,” said Hütter. But the fact is: “I’m here at Eintracht Frankfurt and only deal with Eintracht Frankfurt.”
