According to a media report, the tenure of head coach Oliver Glasner at Eintracht Frankfurt is coming to an end. As the "Bild" reports, the 48-year-old Austrian should leave Hesse despite his contract until the summer of 2024 at the latest this summer.
The only question at the moment is whether Eintracht and Glasner will separate before the cup final on June 3 in Berlin or only after the end of the season. The club declined to comment on the report when asked.
Hellmann publicly questioned Glasner
According to "Bild" there should be a crisis talk between Glasner and sports director Markus Krösche in the coming days. It should be clarified when Glasner's time on the Main ends. In the previous season he had won the Europa League with Eintracht and thus achieved his first entry into the Champions League.
The traditional club from Frankfurt is currently in crisis. Glasner lost his temper at the 1: 3 at TSG 1899 Hoffenheim at the weekend. On the lawn, he saw the red card for lack of discipline, and in the press conference he launched into an angry speech. All players and sports director Krösche initially did not comment after the game. On Sunday, Glasner was then clearly reprimanded by board spokesman Axel Hellmann for his interview. Hellmann publicly doubted a future together with the coach for the first time.
Glasner is traded at several top clubs
In the spring, Eintracht wanted to extend Glasner beyond 2024. But the coach didn't accept it at first and justified it like this: "If I'm selfish, I'll extend the contract, get more money, have an exit clause written in it, and if they kick me out, I'll get more money too. That's selfishness. But I don't do that because it's about much more than these banalities."
The Austrian is reportedly traded at several top international clubs. In Frankfurt, Dino Toppmöller and Matthias Jaissle are contenders for a possible successor to Glasner.
