After this weekend, the GAK will be the leader in the final two games in the second division. If the “red jackets” remain true to their virtues, they will also succeed in promotion. A column by “Krone” reporter Michael Gratzer.
“Please change the coach” or “We won’t even be third with such performances”. What didn’t the GAK fans scold this year? Just think of the not optimal autumn, the mood after the 1:2 in Horn or the 0:3 against Linz. Everything was bad in the eyes of many supporters, they complained non-stop. After this weekend everything is suddenly different again, the championship lead is celebrated… This was not made possible by the mess, but rather by the consistently good work in the club – from chairman Rene Ziesler to sports director Didi Elsneg to coach Gernot Messner and his team. Despite setbacks, everyone always kept calm and watched from game to game. And did very well with this concept. “I can only praise the coach, the players and everyone involved,” applauds Elsneg. Because with an average of 2.33 you worked your way up in the spring. “It’s not over yet. We have to stay calm, humble and focused, ”emphasizes the sporting director. Exactly this sentence reflects the spring. Two games are still waiting for the GAK. Probably the hardest of this season. Everyone knows how big the chance for the Bundesliga is now. But with calm and humility the crowning of this season succeeds. I am absolutely convinced of that!
