Borussia Mönchengladbach sporting director Max Eberl has revealed that he has a good feeling about a summer transfer for one of BMG's desired players.
In an interview with Sky, Eberl spoke about the situation regarding the interest in striker Marcus Thuram from EA Guingamp and defender Malang Sarr from OGC Nice: "We now have a very good feeling about one of our candidates and hope that we are on the home stretch there or perhaps even a little further along."
However, Eberl did not want to reveal which of the two players is about to be transferred to the Lower Rhine region.
According to information from Sky, Thuram is the one with whom Borussia is in good talks.
Gladbach newcomer Breel Embolo: "Of course we hope to play a great season"
Breel Embolo of Borussia Mönchengladbach looked ahead to his new role with confidence. "I deliberately chose this path in order to develop myself further. Yes, the team is well staffed. This can only come to our advantage and of course we hope to play an awesome season", Said the Swiss in an interview with Sky .
The national player is currently still struggling with a foot injury and is therefore still training individually: "It's just up to me to get fit and get to know the team on the pitch. I'm very happy with the way things are going at the moment and I hope it continues like this."
Embolo came to Borussia Park for ten million euros from FC Schalke 04. He is not afraid of the competition at Gladbach: "I already had that at Schalke."
Yann Sommer on Embolo's musical debut: "He'll have to go through it alone"
Borussia Mönchengladbach's Yann Sommer has spoken out about the welcoming ritual for new signing Breel Embolo, which involves his compatriot singing to the entire squad. "He has to go through it alone. Now that's a nice job for a new player. Once you've been through it, stood in the chair and sung, you've really joined the crew. Of course it's unpleasant when 30 or 35 noses are looking at you, just waiting for you to sing a wrong note. But that's part of it, I had to go through it too", said Sommer in the Sport1 interview.
In addition, the goalkeeper believes that Embolo can also help the team from the Lower Rhine in sporting terms: "He will help us because he has a lot of footballing quality and enormous power. We are happy that he is here. But we also have a few other new additions that are and will become important."
Marco Rose's tactics revolution at Borussia Mönchengladbach: Quickly! The main thing, fast!
"It is of course all new", says Gladbach's Patrick Herrmann Goal and SPOX and he says it as if it were the most natural thing ever. But well "all new" is also the current motto at Borussia Mönchengladbach. Since Marco Rose took over as coach a good two weeks ago, perhaps the most exciting project in the Bundesliga has been underway: the total transformation of a soccer team in terms of playing philosophy and tactics.
Dieter Hecking, most recently Gladbach's coach for two and a half years, mostly ran a 4-3-3 system last season, emphasizing game control. When his team in February against FC Schalke 04 once held the ball over 62 stations and then shot into the goal, he praised afterwards: "It may have seemed unspectacular, but from the coach's point of view, that was an outstanding goal."
