Marco Rose’s dismissal on Friday came as a surprise. Apparently, the season analysis by BVB officials was so devastating that the coach had to leave after just one year, despite finishing runners-up. The list of allegations against the coach is long.
“Unsatisfactory season”: Why did Marco Rose have to go, even though the BVB bosses had previously backed the 45-year-old? The analysis of the ultimately disappointing season was the decisive factor for this coach’s hammer. Managing Director Hans-Joachim Watzke (62) explained: “After a season that was unsatisfactory for various reasons, we had to realize that we didn’t get the most out of our opportunities in many areas.”
Too many goals conceded: The “Bild” has learned the background of what the powerful BVB boss Watzke is talking about – and ultimately led to the early end of the Champions League, Europa League and DFB Cup. So the defense is obviously too shaky. With 52 goals in the league, BVB have conceded too many goals – more than since 2007/2008 under Thomas Doll. A thorn in the side of those responsible were the rough clap (2:5 against Leverkusen, 1:4 against Leipzig, 0:4 in Amsterdam, 3:4 against Bochum).
Too thin-skinned: Rose is also accused of tactical deficiencies, as in the 2-5 win against Leverkusen, when coach Mahmoud Dahoud played on the 6, while Jude Bellingham and Julian Brandt played on the 8 and were brought in by the Werkself. Another point of criticism is “wrong training”. The team suffered too many muscle injuries, resulting in more than 2,000 lost days in the squad. Rose is also accused of personal things, he is often too “thin-skinned” and “annoyed” and would not have performed as well as desired as a communicator.
