The reception was a little condescending. Hardly Hannover 96 had committed the HSV-Idol Thomas Doll as their new coach, wandered on the Internet, the usual Name games ("FC Dollywood"), and memories of his memorable press conference in Dortmund ("I laugh my ass") through the Internet. As the table second-to-last in the football League have engaged an Entertainer for the relegation battle, and not a former national player who has led in his career Hamburger SV in the Champions League and Borussia Dortmund in the Cup final.
Doll assumed his new position on Monday with humility. "Of course I am. This is one of the best leagues in the world,“ said the 52-Year-old on Monday at his presentation . He was Manager Horst Heldt and President Martin kind is "very grateful to you for giving me this Chance," what are the two decision-makers at Hannover 96 were pretty well divided.

Thomas von Heesen, Frank Pagels village or Michael Skibbe: the trainers were called in the season of 2007/08, colleagues of Thomas Doll. On a call like Horst Heldt you waiting so far in vain.
Doll itself, it was for years as well. "Always, when I read somewhere on the Internet that my Name was at a Bundesliga club or a second division side in the conversation, I was sitting on Packed suitcases," he said in 2015, in a "Kicker"Interview. The first of his three Cup victories and a championship-winning five-year Station in the Ferencvaros Budapest had made him a "lucky coach".
What has helped him so far, at every Station, is its ability to delight players, and to an environment away.
