"Coach on call": Gerardo Seoane still in office only because of a lack of options?

Gerardo Seoane is under pressure after the false start with Bayer Leverkusen. The vote of confidence from his bosses is apparently only half-baked, as Sport Bild reports.

Anyone who thought that Bayer 04 would finally find their way after the 2-0 win over Atletico Madrid was wrong. In the Bundesliga there was a sobering 1-1 draw in front of a home crowd, which didn't help the Werkself - after seven games, Leverkusen are at the bottom with a measly five points. There is currently no need to think about the targeted participation in the Champions League under the Bayer Cross.

Nevertheless, those responsible continue to support Gerardo Seoane. "We take the current sporting situation very seriously and know our responsibility. That's why we analyze in detail, we discuss and we are critical of each other. But we are fully convinced that we should continue on our common path," emphasized Managing Director Fernando Carro to the dpa on Tuesday.

According to Sport Bild, this vote of confidence is not solely due to the fact that people continue to believe in Seoane. It is also due to the fact that there is no suitable option for the successor in the short term.

According to the report, those responsible recently sounded out the trainer market, but saw that no satisfactory solution was available. Domenico Tedesco and Adi Hütter are "not considered more promising" than Seoane - Bayer 04 would have no chance against Thomas Tuchel. Therefore, it was decided in Leverkusen to continue with Seoane for the time being.

Nevertheless, the Swiss should only be a "coach on call", as Sport Bild says. A dismissal at the next failure is always possible.
