Oliver Ruhnert looks a bit like an insurance salesman, smooth and shaved smooth ironed. He speaks like one, in-depth box sets and of "actions and objectives". Questions 46 answers Ruhnert, most prefer evasive, or in the subjunctive. It is possible that this is a prerequisite for the Job, the Ruhnert just carries on. He works as a "Director professional football", as it is officially called, 1. FC Union – and must play in these days, the Mystery man. Because if the winter break, back traditionally, two questions: Who is leaving the club? And who joins?
these questions can be approached in a Ruhnert before the first round of the season this Sunday (13.30 PM, live on Sky) in Aue left. He has created in the summer of a few of the basics that have brought the Berlin football second division team on a very successful first half of the season. The new signings such as goalkeeper Rafal Gikiewicz, Central defender Florian Hübner or the Central midfielder Manuel Schmiedebach have taken the mid-term review: third place, 31 points, unbeaten. The key dates are after 17 match days, which have made the issue of ascension in Köpenick, a large – and debates EMS personnel to a small, so far, anyway.
The Union ardently desired "stability" and "peace" (Ruhnert) has implemented the committed coach Urs Fischer is exemplary. Unlike Ruhnert Fischer speaks no insurance representative German, but Swiss German, a bit slower coming over his language, less nested, more straightforward. And the former Basel Champions-League-Trainer play. His managing Director called stability has returned, with fishermen not only besides, but above all on the square. A card whose the best Defensive (twelve goals conceded) in the League. "We have met the expectations," Ruhnert, rather, even "as a result of the great upheaval exceeded".
In principle, he could think, therefore, been on the squad for the coming season, and two plans to make one for League one and League two. But the planning of the business leader is another. If Union games in the season 2019/20 in the upper or lower house, making for the squad planning, no big difference, explains Ruhnert. "Completely independent" act he claims Ruhnert, "only in the third division we are not allowed to play". Objectives be communicated, as Often of a Union, to belong to the "Top 20, 25" in Germany. And newly promoted Fortuna Düsseldorf to recognize, finally, that the Bundesliga is also a master with a majority of second-division players. Out of all the Ruhnert derives this sentence: "We have confidence in our squad – absolutely."
hate the club would let one of his performers draw
some of the answers have to be given at the Alte Försterei. For example, if the field players who did not play in the preliminary round, leaving the club prematurely. "Of course there are also players who think about their future," says Ruhnert. With those, the brood, was the club in a discussion. Pondering should mainly Fabian good to be home, Marc Torrejon, Christoph Schösswendter, Berkan Taz, Eroll Zejnullahu and Lennard Maloney, which were up to now not a single Minute on the field and their contracts in the summer will expire. "I don't think that one or the other is quite happy with this first half of the season, how it went," says Fischer.
Simon Hedlund (elf operations/contract up to 2020) is dissatisfied and fact publicly known that he wanted to leave the club in the Winter. Oliver Ruhnert aware of the situation, he says: "We are in professional football. If a player is unhappy and wants to go, which is always the case.“ Then the players would have to bring a club "and the club must then try to find a solution. And then we have to deal with it.“ You mean: voices the economic conditions, the Union is not averse to one or other of the players in the winter break. "We have always said, at the end over a squad of 25, 26 players," says Ruhnert. There are currently 28 players in Köpenick are under contract.
reluctantly, the club would, however, be one of its service providers. Categorically not want to exclude Ruhnert: "The danger in football is always, because we have to think economically, too. The probability of that happening, I would however, now as a very, very, very low estimate.“ Fischer says: "I believe also, that one or the other player has made interesting with this first half of the season. So it goes in football sometimes.“
insurance technically speaking, this means: "there Should be things in the Winter is a) possible and b) necessary – due to the fact that any changes – we would probably use the opportunity." It seems that Oliver Ruhnert be prepared for all eventualities.More about
