If necessary with (dearly meant) blows …
“Too naive! Too ineffective! ” According to Bochum coach Thomas Reis (47) the reasons for the 1: 3 bankruptcy against Hertha. Why should things go better in the away brawler at Bayern (Saturday, 3:30 p.m. / Sky)?
Reis with a wink: “Maybe I have to build one for each one. No, seriously: If you shit your pants before the game, you have to change jobs! “
His clear goal: to win points with the record champions!
► To achieve this, Reis had targeted training for over an hour on Wednesday: In the 7-on-7 duel, a team somehow had to hold tight for more than two minutes of playing time. The opponent imitated Bayern by pressing high and applying pressure. Reis: “Exactly what awaits us in Munich.”
Nevertheless, the coach wants to hold on to his own game – with ball possession over the outside with speed forward: “We started against Hertha, against Bayern we will try that somehow.”
If Bochum loses against Bayern opponents who are afraid of them (50 competitive games bankruptcies, maximum value), the Pott club is even threatened with an early fall to 18th place. Bayern are doing a great job and yet they are not UNBEATABLE. “
