Eight troubles at the TSV 1860: Köllner criticizes Gorenzel for the agreement with Holzhauser

It was a little after 10 a.m. on Tuesday morning. Michael Köllner sat at a small brown table near gate 14 in Antalya. On the wall behind him was an advertisement for a fast food restaurant. It was the moment when the coach of TSV 1860 had to sum up the week of the camp.

Of course, the transfer hiccup around Raphael Holzhauser was also an issue. And this back and forth definitely falls into the realm of slow food. Something for people who are not in a rush and can wait for food.

Köllner annoyed by transfer theater Holzhauser

Köllner, however, would prefer fast food when it comes to transfer – and was angry because the eighth problem had already been identified in the summer but has not been resolved so far. “We supposedly have money for a transfer and then I can’t make the transfer,” complained the 53-year-old.

The lion trainer considers it a “disaster” that the name Holzhauser became public at an early age. It did “a lot of damage”. Plus, he’s fed up with endless ads. “They said we were going to training camp. Now training camp is over and Mr. X is not here,” complained the coach, looking annoyed.

Sixty-eight problems!

A day and a half earlier, sporting director Günther Gorenzel had verbally explained in the team hotel that from the lions’ point of view all homework had been done and written commitments had not been kept by the team. other part. Everything is irrelevant to Köllner. Instead, he’s now putting pressure on Gorenzel: “You could say we can keep doing this until the summer. Okay. But that means to me that the likelihood of us being among the first three is not zero, but much weaker”. “

A few days before the start at the Waldhof Mannheim on Saturday, there was an open confrontation with Gorenzel, whose area of ​​responsibility falls within this complex and who recognizes the recipe for promotion in the team even without new acquisitions. Köllner, however, considers the eighth position not sufficiently equipped to be considered a clear candidate for promotion. “We wanted to sign an eight this summer and postponed it. Now it’s winter and the eight is still not there. A quality player is missing in the position,” Köllner said.

“What will it mean if we finish fourth? Yes, the coach has screwed it up”

What does the current Eighth General Staff think of such statements? After all, Köllner is denying his players a certain amount of wealth – whether he likes it or not. With Martin Kobylanski (“I’ll feel the pressure”), the coach perceives certain fitness factors despite working extra shifts, Marius Wörl (“Put that burden on the shoulder of an 18-year-old”) starts it all just to gain a foothold in the professional world, and Erik Tallig (“Comes more from the outside”) that he does not necessarily see in the center. “We already have a good team, no doubt we have a talented team,” said the coach. Only: “If you haven’t fulfilled your managerial duties, then to say that we are a sure climber – I find that a bit far-fetched.”

The 53-year-old clearly has no desire to be held accountable for the things he has warned about but which have not been resolved. Or is he looking for an alibi in case things go wrong? “What will it mean if we finish fourth? Yes, the coach has ruined everything,” Köllner said.

The case of Raphael Holzhauser: for the 1860 test match against Kaiserslautern he apparently had a guest permit - but it was used by OH Leuven in league operations that evening.

The coach – this is part of the truth – is also required to make the most of the opportunities that arise. And they’re not that bad – look at Sixty’s early season winning streak.

What Gorenzel thinks of his coach’s comments, he preferred to keep to himself on Tuesday. “No comment,” he told AZ after landing in Munich. The fact that things are simmering at the Sixty, even before the seriousness of the league resumes, shows what is at stake until the 38th day. And it also shows that the unity of lions that has been sworn for days in Turkey has by no means been established – at least not at all levels.
