Jörg Marwedel, Born in 1954, born and living in Hamburg, working since 2001 as a Northern correspondent in the Sport for the Süddeutsche Zeitung. Has been in the Championships before, including the German press Agency and the world on Sunday over three world and five European Championships in football have been reported. Personally, the greatest football success of the final of the Hamburg school Mönchengladbach championship in front of 55 000 spectators in the old people's Park stadium before the Bundesliga match HSV against Borussia.
For connoisseurs of football history, Thomas Doll, 52, a coach that belongs in a series with voice mighty greats such as Rudi Völler and Giovanni Trapattoni. Also, the native of Mecklenburg has once held a headline-grabbing rant. In 2008, that was when he was in charge of Borussia Dortmund and the reporters lack of respect for the professionals accused: "If you want to see what a Bad, Bad thing", indignant. The reviews were "bla-bla-bla". At the end of his emotional remarks, he said: "I laugh' my ass." So passionate Hannover 96 wants its new Coach. After all, only with extreme passion the of lower Saxony, with eleven points from 19 Games, save before the second descent, within three years.
On Sunday evening Doll wrote a contract until 2020, and is considered a precaution for the second League. A few hours earlier, the club had released after the 1:5 defeat in Dortmund, his predecessor, André width riders. Now Doll will start on Friday with a home game against the top team RB Leipzig.
One of his first tasks was Doll said at his presentation on Monday at noon, the players, the lost return to self-awareness. Therefore, he had said in his first speech to the team: "guys, you kick a can." He was convinced that the quality is sufficient for the Bundesliga. Therefore, he had arrived "without a wish list," on the new players.
it was said that President Martin kind would have preferred a Hanover-based solution, with the former 96 coach Mirko Slomka. After all, Slomka, Hannover 96 has saved time, 2010, when the Team after the suicide of national goalkeeper Robert Enke, the second division seemed to stagger. Then Slomka 96 even led twice in the Europa League. However, the club denied; the child had kept this question out. Manager Horst Heldt have - despite internal differences - sporty still Say that.
And Heldt pleaded for the Doll. The new coach Heldt said that he had proved "anywhere" that he could achieve given goals, whether it is in the fight of the classes, or title, and the participation in the international business. Doll could convey "with all of his experience to a team exactly what they needed in order to create the turning point". In addition, the new coach "stress-resistant". Doll says that he wants to pretend "the guys back simple things". Things, not overwhelm.
Eleven years has not worked Doll in the Bundesliga
Some experts were still surprised by Heldts choice. Finally, the former national player Doll has not been working for eleven years in the Bundesliga. At the beginning of his first coach station in his favorite club Hamburger SV, Gerhard Schröder, still Chancellor. The Hamburg-popular Doll led the club from last place to number three and in the Champions League. On 1. In February 2007, he had to leave HSV after almost three years - now as a table the last. And as he was then for Borussia Dortmund, it went twice around the classes. The Borussia was just about to recover from Almost bankruptcy in 2005. Only with Dolls successor Jürgen Klopp BVB put back to the height of flight.
There had gone to a Doll already on the move. With Genclerbirligi Ankara, Turkey, he remained one and a half years, while Saudi club Al-Hilal a half. Then his best time as a coach began. By August 2018, he worked almost five years for the Ferencvaros Budapest, a championship and three Cup wins, he celebrated. Was dismissed it as a table first. Officially, it was a consensual parting, Hungarian media reported but, the real reason for the separation, an "opaque system of play", have been missed purchasing policy, as well as the weak performance on the European stage. Ferencvaros had failed in the first qualifying round of the Europa League, to Maccabi Tel Aviv.
In Germany, had to struggle for a Doll for a long time with its reputation as the "Duz-Dolly", because he was allegedly too sweet and sensitive for this Job. Ralf Zumdick, since the HSV-time Dolls wizard and now also in Hanover goes, contradicts this assessment. In the magazine 11 friends Zumdick said: "He's good with the players, and his positive nature is infectious. Who reduced him but that misunderstands him. Thomas is very direct and can also get in the way." In addition, he was "a front man, he is made".
Whether Doll gets 96, further reinforcement is not excluded. President child thinks about it, even though he invested with his partner Dirk Rossmann 17 million euros in new professionals. So or so: if the "Mission classes holding", could be finished for Doll, after a short Comeback, the career as a Bundesliga coach. There's also a new rant would help.
