Hanover (dpa / lni) – Hanover’s former coach Jan Zimmermann has criticized the working environment at the second division soccer team. “Traditional clubs are never easy. At 96 there was no constant. Three or four pillars, such as management, staff, team and coaching team, all crumbled or were completely reassembled,” said the 42-year-old from “Bild”. .
He adds: “There is always an opposition and enough people who come around the corner if they don’t succeed. To endure that, you need inner peace in the club – and there never was.” The parent club and majority shareholder Martin Kind are currently engaged in a bitter power struggle at 96, which is being fought out in court.
At the end of last year, the club separated from Zimmermann, who had only come from third division promoted TSV Havelse a few months earlier. He described the manner of the separation as “absolutely fair”https://www.sueddeutsche.de/sport/”Nevertheless, the moment when you are eliminated is of course not nice.”
After the time at 96, he went on vacation and wanted “to get away from Hanover, not to hear or read anything”. Zimmermann then spoke to people who are in the football business and still have an outside view. “I also spoke to a psychologist once. I just wanted to get input from many areas to see: What can be done differently or better?”
