At his official presentation, the new Gladbach coach Daniel Farke (45) presented the first business games relating to the restructuring of Borussia Mönchengladbach. One focus is on transfer policy.

“We have to make good decisions”: Borussia Mönchengladbach’s new head coach Daniel Farke wants to make various adjustments in order to experience a sporting upswing after the disappointing last season. Adi Hütter’s successor said that “a good transfer summer” was necessary above all: “We have to make good decisions.”

Short, compact, clear

Farke demands creativity: He also wants to convey a clear philosophy to his team. He wants to create a team “that is brave, that is aggressive, that is not primarily concerned with preventing defeats”. Instead, he also strives in the interests of the fans to “[be] the protagonist” and “[to] see creativity and joy of playing.”

Favre replacement: Farke was not bothered by the fact that after Lucien Favre had rejected the desired solution, he was now acting as a kind of plan B. Rather, he would have found it “strange” “if Borussia hadn’t dealt with Lucien Favre.”
