Adi Hütter wants to move with Frankfurt's borders

The One-year anniversary in Bern, he noticed, of course he did, the relationship of some of the companions from the successful time in the case of YB is still tight. Adi Hütter received on Sunday pictures on phone sent by the magnificent choreography of the spectators in the home match against Lugano (2:2), 365 days after the furious 2:1 against Luzern, which had ensured the first title of the Young Boys after 32 years. "This evening I will never forget. And now YB denies an even better season, this is great," says the coach of Eintracht Frankfurt. "But here, too, so much is going on, this is hard to believe."

Frankfurt is in a state of emergency, at least those people who are interested in soccer . And almost all of them. "The people are euphoric," says Hütter. At rank 4, the Concord is also available three game days before the end of the season, so the Club next season, could participate for the first time in the Champions League. And, this is fueling the rush, on Thursday in Frankfurt in the first leg of the Europa League semi-finals hits home to Chelsea. Hütter calls it "the biggest game" of his previous coaching career and says the development in Frankfurt is huge. "If this would have a predicted eight or nine months, he would have been laughed at."

false start

not to keep, It is easy for Adi Hütter, with all the enthusiasm of the Overview. The 49-Year-old says, he did not forget, who was the world club and who representatives from the midfield of the Bundesliga. "We have moved to the borders. And now the ultimate challenge is waiting for us." Frankfurt could be a very good season in excellent finishing. And according to the already great space 8, as well as the sensational victory in the Cup final against Bayern last season.

coach Niko Kovac earned the promotion to the Bayern, Hütter after the historic Triumph with YB those to Frankfurt. The Austrians gazes thoughtfully back to his beginning in Germany and the Cup embarrassment against the fourth-ranked Ulm, on the initially bumpy League performances and the sharp criticism. "I was after our false start with the number 1 as a coach dismissal of a candidate."


For months now, but excited to Eintracht Frankfurt with fresh attacking football, the Club has established itself similar to how Ajax Amsterdam, as a favorite at a neutral audience. And long he is the last German representative in the European Cup. "The whole of Germany looks on Thursday," says Adi Hütter. "But we are against Chelsea geek."

And then he counts all the world class players on the London precious club, the world champion, Olivier Giroud and N'Golo Kanté, but also Gonzalo Higuain, Willian, David Luiz and Eden Hazard, especially him, the Belgian Superstar, "one of the five best footballers of the world", as Hütter. Hazard plays in the European Cup not always, because Chelsea in the Premier League, participation is Fourth in a tight battle for the Champions League.

In the Europa League preliminary round, no Team was better than Frankfurt: 18 points from six games in the tough group with Lazio, Olympique Marseille and Limassol. 2019 Shakhtar Donetsk, Inter Milan and Benfica Lisbon have been turned off. "We have defeated many top teams," says Hütter. "Inter is about arbitration in the Champions League preliminary against the semi-finalists, Barcelona and Tottenham from extremely scarce. Of course Italian Teams in the Europa League is not so great, but this was a great success for us."


In the quarter-final against Benfica Frankfurt was in the first leg after an early red card against defender Evan Ndicka shortly after the break of 1:4. The boy wonder vaunted João Felix, 19, met three times. The Portuguese, however, won only 4:2 and lost a week later, away 0:2. "Our mentality is impressive," says Hütter. "Not only the Swiss Gelson Fernandes in front of lives."

No one embodies the will and the passion is stronger than Filip Kostic, endurance runner and a champion on the left side in the intensive 3-5-2-System of the harmony. On Thursday, however, Frankfurt must be in the Offensive on the trick, Croatian, Vice world champion Ante Rebic (suspended) and the injured Sébastien Haller, a type of player such as YB-scorer Guillaume Hoarau, rich without. "The exceptional Ambiance in the stadium will carry us again," says Hütter.

A hope for Luka Jovic, is 21, but already on foot courted by the Great of world football such as Barcelona and Real Madrid. The market is estimated to be worth 70 million Swiss francs. Recently Frankfurt have pulled the Option for the Benfica-on loan from Jovic and obliged the Serbian striker for around 7 million Swiss francs. Jovic scored this season, 25 goals in competitive matches, it has fantastic qualities, in conclusion, weakened last, but. "This is normal, the buzz around him is huge," says Hütter. "In the last days he was in Training again looser."


The example Jovic, the sensitive accompaniments of the Frankfurt altitude illustrates flight. In the League, the Team seemed the least tired, for example at 1:1 in Wolfsburg, or on Saturday for the weak 0:0 against Berlin. "The program is demanding," says Hütter, "but we are not looking for excuses. It is beautiful, we stand with Chelsea, Arsenal and Valencia in the Europa League semi-final." The final, incidentally, will be held in Baku, Azerbaijan metropolis Hütter, 2014, was as Coach of Red Bull Salzburg (and sat against Karabakh in the 3. Qualifying round for the Champions League). "Baku is always worth a visit," he says with a grin.

Adi Hütter, therefore, is a very interesting month of may. The drop height is considerable – Frankfurt with dances in spheres, for which the club actually, the rhythm is missing. "Our successes have raised expectations for brutally to the top," says Hütter, who is already in the focus of top teams. "I was in Austria and in Switzerland masters. Now it is a pleasure for me, appreciated my work in Germany."

The dream

Between the duels against Chelsea on Thursday and in a week the ground-breaking game about Champions League qualification chasers Leverkusen stands for Frankfurt on the Agenda, in the last round the away match at Bayern. There is the possibility of the end of the season empty-handed. On the question of whether he achieved better in the Europa League Final or the rank 4 in the Bundesliga, defending, answers Adi Hütter mischievous: "We win at the best the Europa League. Then we qualified for the Champions League." (Editorial Tamedia)
