Borussia Mönchengladbach sporting director, Max Eberl directly spoke to his dissatisfied fans through an open letter posted on the Monday print edition of German footballing magazine, Kicker.
has highlighted that head-coachMarco Rose
's betrayal has brought many consequences.
Team chairman, Thomas Ludwig has posted several damning letters online in which he criticizes Rose for committing to rivals Borussia Dortmund next season.
Besides being deprived of the chance to see their teams live in the team, German ultra societies realized they are denied of their most valuable asset which is the chance to have their voices heard.
In a step that will certainly provoke a strong answer from the local FandProjekt, Gladbach sporting director, Max Eberl shortly displayed sympathy and understanding of the criticism but instantly returned on the attack in terms of discussing the charges leveled against him.
"When I read that fans have 'pulled the plug' because our coach is leaving us and that they are no longer interested in the current season because the coach remains on the sidelines, I'm deprived of the collective fighting spirit for Borussia,"
"Surrendering to circumstance and pulling the plug aren't things that I can understand. My 'plug' will never be pulled so long as I'm in this job. Giving up will never and should never be an issue."
Eberl has openly stressed that he never would have gotten Rose to get toGladbach
in the first place without such a release clause and those buyout choices are an inescapable part of the modern sport.
"[We make decisions] not based on personal emotions, not based on getting respect from others, not based on external pressures, and not based on vanity,"
"We aim to make the best decisions for Borussia Mönchengladbach. It's about Borussia and not about praise."
