Bosz has full support of Völler and Rolfes

Fri 05 February 2021 | 6:30

Despite Leverkusen’s unexpected exit in DFB Pokal and a couple of poor results that cost them slipping from second to fifth in the Bundesliga table, club bosses made clear that they support their current trainer.

Among

Bosz’s

questionable decisions in their loss to the fourth-tier club,

Rot-Weiß-Essen.

was placing both

Patrik Schick

and

Lucas Alario

atop an unfamiliar 3-1-4-2 system. He also used

Exequiel Palacios

to pull the strings in midfield and kept injury returned

Charles Aranguiz

on the pitch for the full 120 minutes. However, the club’s sporting director,

Simon Roles

, and sporting CEO,

Rudi Völler

, defended the manager’s decisions.

"We created a lot of chances and should have led by halftime,"

Völler

noted, "The formation was good. We had to take our chances."

"When you score the first goal, you have to bring the game home with confident, well-organized, and structured possession,"

Rolfes

complained.

"We'll have to put ourselves [in Bosz's] shoes,"

Völler

added, "We let the opponent gain confidence, but I'll stick to my guns. We need to score more goals."

Despite the club’s bosses' supports, if

Bayer

cannot find their way back to form befitting of their overall talent level,

Bosz

can expect a harsher response.
