After the 2-1 win against Union Berlin, Eintracht Frankfurt has finally arrived in the season. Of the past eleven games, Eintracht won seven and lost only two. SPORT BILD names five reasons for the change.
Trainer Glasner has found an axis:
With goalkeeper Trapp (31), defenders Ndicka (22) and Tuta (22), the six-men Sow (24) and Jakic (24), left winger Kostic (29) and the offensive trio Kamada (25), Lindstrøm (21) and Borré (26) has been in the starting line-up for nine players in the last four games.
Sports boss Markus Krösche (41): “You can tell by the three-way chain. It is becoming more and more secure, and things are going better in building up the game too. With Sow and Jakic you can tell that the timing is getting better. And there are also the players in the front. So we are no longer as calculable as at the beginning of the season. “
Kostic reinvents itself:
Kostic has been the league’s cross machine for years, having scored three goals in the last four games. But coach Oliver Glasner (47) also wants to see flat passes from the Serbs into the interface, because Eintracht often lacks robust buyers of the high balls. Glasner discussed this with him in the individual analysis.
Trapp is finally the leader:
Thanks to his parades, Trapp saved the victories in Munich (2: 1), Piraeus (2: 1) and Freiburg (2: 0). Now he gives the team security with his demeanor. Krösche: “He has an uncanny presence with his charisma. Other players who die help him because they always have the courage to be approachable for him close to their own goal. “
He still can!

More team spirit:
After the late Europa League winning goal at Olympiakos, goalkeeper Trapp actively approached team photographer Max Galys and asked him to take a team photo in front of the away block. And the bosses also want to strengthen cohesion. During the international break they sent the team to go karting.
In addition, due to the tight schedule, the team only got around to organizing a first team meal together a few weeks ago. The mentality is right. The best proof: In five of the last eight games, Eintracht scored after the 90th minute and scored eleven points with five stoppage time goals.
Sociologist helps Glasner
The trainer calls sociologist Werner Zöchling (71) once a week. Glasner has known the personnel developer for years. With him, Glasner reflects on his dealings with the team and his demeanor.
Glasner tries to work according to Zöchling’s principle of “appreciative recognition”. Put simply, it is about not wanting to change the character traits of the players as long as they adhere to the rules of conduct.
