Saturday afternoon may not have been so much fun for Adi Hutter, who has been quarantined after contracting the coronavirus.
After crisis-ridden club Borussia Mönchengladbach suffered setback after setback in the past few weeks, Vorarlberger faced a “game of fate” against latecomers Hertha BSC in Round 26, which he also had to watch in front of the TV to watch made matters worse.
If the Fillies had also lost the game against FC Berlin to the chaos, Hutter and his Gladbach coaching staff would have gone into the next international break at the latest.
In Hütter’s absence, assistant coach Christian Bentinger took the puck on the sidelines of Borussia – and led Gladbach at least temporarily out of the relegation battle with a 2-0 win at Hertha Berlin (Match Report >>>).
“I am enjoying this moment a little bit, because it is an honor to stand here on the outline in front of such an audience in such a stadium and then lead them with a win. It makes you proud and I am happy that it is too,” Bentinger smiled at the post-match press conference.
‘Deserved to win’
Styrian was not in contact with his boss shortly after the final whistle, but it can be assumed that Hütter could live well with his longtime companion’s performance on the sidelines. At least Bentinger himself is satisfied with his team’s performance.
“In the first half, I saw a very confident performance from our team, with a lot of passion and a lot of effort. But I also saw that we had problems in the first 10 minutes of the second half. We are very deep there again but we made it 2-0 in time and deserved it.” win,” the 54-year-old analyzed the match dryly.
Incidentally, this was not the first time that Beninger had to replace Hütter. When the two Austrian players were still working at Eintracht Frankfurt, Bentinger moved up to the front row in the 2018/19 European League quarter-final second leg at Inter Milan instead of suspended Hooters – even then they managed to win and even get a promotion.
