On Thursday, Eintracht Frankfurt celebrated a 1-0 victory in the semi-final second leg against West Ham United. The Frankfurters celebrated a historic success and are now in the final of the Europa League. With Oliver Glasner, there is an Austrian coach in a European Cup final for the first time in 26 years. But the victory had a bitter aftertaste. ÖFB team defender Martin Hinteregger suffered a thigh injury and had to be substituted early. It is now clear: Hinteregger will be out for the rest of the season. This was announced by Eintracht Frankfurt on Friday.
Despite the injury, Frankfurt coach Oliver Glasner remains optimistic: “Martin will play an important role with us until the final, even if he can’t play. He always takes a player aside in the dressing room and gives them advice,” he said at today’s press conference ahead of Sunday’s game against Borussia Mönchengladbach.
