In order to forget the end of the Champions League, along with the serious riots in Naples, Oliver Glasner relied on a remedy he found effective: football on a continuous loop.
“I shook off my personal sadness after playing five or six hours of football,” said the Eintracht Frankfurt coach, looking ahead to Thursday, when the Europa League and Conference League were played.
He first watched Freiburg vs. Juventus Turin, then Royale Union Saint-Gilloise vs. Union Berlin and finally extra time and the penalty shoot-out between Arsenal FC and Sporting Lisbon.
sad and proud
The Italian league leaders Napoli were at least one size too big for Glasner’s Eintracht in the round of 16 of the premier class (overall score 5:0).
“It was the first time in my history at Eintracht that we were eliminated in Europe. On the one hand it’s sad, on the other hand we’re proud,” said the 48-year-old from Salzburg.
Last year his team won the Europa League. On Sunday Frankfurt takes on Union Berlin in the Bundesliga.
