Video End of video Head coach Oliver Glasner has reacted to rumors about two alleged corona cases in the Eintracht Frankfurt team. “That’s one of the reasons I’m not on social media. There’s way too much writing,” Glasner said on Friday. “If any player was definitely out, I would have said that today.” Eintracht will play at FC Augsburg on Sunday (3:30 p.m.) and want to get their first win of 2022 after beating Borussia Dortmund 3-2. The coach replied cryptically to another question about the two players not named by the club. He couldn’t confirm or deny anything, but he joked: “I have a call with Health Minister Karl Lauterbach this afternoon. We’ll go over it all again with the health authorities and then we’ll see.”
Glasner: “So far there is nothing”
However, Glasner also put it into perspective: “So far there is nothing. But I saw last week that I should be careful with forecasts. It’s a strange and complicated time. What I say today can change again by Sunday.” Switzerland’s Djibril Sow and France’s Almamy Touré returned to team training this week after unclear test results. Winger Danny da Costa is still in quarantine.

In terms of sport, it’s about keeping up with the international ranks and fulfilling the obligation of a relegation candidate. Glasner warned against the fast vertical play of Augsburg and their strikers, who are strong in the air. “Augsburg have a lot of great strikers who can always extend balls, and wingers who pace the spaces. We have a lot of respect,” said Glasner. But of course you won’t hide. “We want to win in Augsburg. We know we need a very, very good performance – we believe we can do that,” said Glasner, who should be hoping for his striker Rafael Borré, who is currently in a good mood. The Colombian had recently scored two goals against BVB and is getting better and better after a bumpy start to the season.
