Soccer expert Markus Babbel expects coach Gerardo Seoane to leave Bayer Leverkusen soon and has sharply criticized managing director Fernando Carro. "Gerardo won't have a chance, he won't survive. Even if I keep my fingers crossed for him. He's an excellent coach," said Babbel on the ran Bundesliga web show on Monday evening. Seoane, who once succeeded Babbel as coach of FC Luzern, is under criticism after Leverkusen's poor start to the season and the 4-0 loss at FC Bayern Munich on Friday.
Babbel criticized Carro for this TV appearance: "For me, the way he presented himself was a disaster. In my eyes, it was a rhetorical declaration of bankruptcy." Carro was "actually really able to prepare for it," said Babbel. "The Leverkusen game was on Friday, the show on Sunday."
