Eintracht-Frankfurt-Coach Oliver Glasner takes prematurely from the race for succession of ex-ÖFB team boss Franco Foda. The post is “not an issue” for him. With Ralf Rangnick, the ÖFB nevertheless forms a “big solution”.
For many fans and experts, Oliver Glasner would be a fantastic candidate for the team boss job in Austria. The 47-year-old performed strongly at the LASK and shows his qualities since 2019 in Germany, only at the VfL Wolfsburg and now at Eintracht Frankfurt.
The fact that Glasner is currently not tremendous on the succession of Franco Foda, amazed little. “It’s not an issue for me,” says Glasner to SKY. “I am here at the Eintracht and we have such great tasks in front of us. I feel well in the club, in the whole city, so it is not an issue for me.”
In the long term, he could already imagine become Austria’s team boss. “I have often said – and I am also – that team boss in your own country is the biggest thing you can achieve as a coach. That’s why it may be on my ‘Bucket List’.”
But: “On the other pages, I have always set myself the goal that I do not sit up to 70 on the coach bank, not as a national coach, where you are not daily at the place, but still be permanently on the road. That’s why I do not know. But in my view, it is certainly one of the top jobs you can have. “
Negotate Schöttel in Manchester with Rangnick?
With the criticism of Franco Foda, Glasner can not do much. She was too much and “too superficial”, one can prepare a team much too little on games as a team boss. “What do you want to train in three days? That’s not possible,” says Glasner.
Accordingly, this is not the question of whether the ÖFB should take over the red-bull philosophy in the future: “Now we have to play Red Bull or Real Madrid – I think this question is not because you have no training time. If You want to put something in a team, you need training time and you do not have a team boss. That’s why I find that far too much criticism was turned out and did not even go exactly as it is. “
Peter Schöttel is likely to take himself too much to heart. As the courier reports, Schöttel flew to Manchester to lead talks with United Interim Trainer Ralf Rangnick. And not to get input, but for concrete negotiations. And there are certainly opportunities to convince Rangnick for the ÖFB job.

“Money does not always come first,” says an insider to the courier. Chances on the Manchester-United job hardly has Rangnick, there are Erik Ten Hag (Ajax Amsterdam) and Mauricio Pochettino (PSG) in the pole position.
