Adi Hütter will no longer be on the Gladbach sidelines from the coming season. The Vorarlberger announced this after the 5-1 win against Hoffenheim. The coach told the TV channel “Sky” that he and the club “go their separate ways by mutual consent.” The club also confirmed this at the same time. The decision is the result of the discussions and analyzes of the past season that have been held over the past few weeks and days.
Gladbach has not lived up to their own expectations this season. The bottom line in the league was only a tenth place, far from their own claims. The only highlight was the 5-0 win against Bayern Munich in the DFB Cup. On the other hand there was also a 0:6 bankruptcy against Freiburg. Even before the game against Hoffenheim, the club officials are said to have looked for a successor, according to “Bild”. According to the German newspaper, the relationship between coach and team was broken. Now the separation is certain.
“We agree that this decision is the right one for both sides,” sporting director Roland Virkus said in a statement. The two assistant coaches Christian Peintinger and Armin Reutershahn will also no longer work for Gladbach
