Eintracht Frankfurt: Oliver Glasner explains contract issue – “No poker”

SGE trainer confirms whereabouts

Coach Oliver Glasner has once again confirmed that he will remain at Eintracht Frankfurt in the coming season and justified his current hesitation in extending his contract. “Everyone can assume that I will still be the coach here next season,” said the 48-year-old Austrian on Thursday at the press conference before the Bundesliga duel at BVB (Saturday, 6:30 p.m.).

At the same time, Glasner defended himself against public representations that he had not yet accepted a contract offer made by the Hessians until 2026 for selfish reasons. “If I’m selfish, I’ll extend the contract, get more money, put a release clause in it and if they kick me out, I’ll get more money too. That’s egoism. But I don’t do that, because it’s about much more than these banalities,” emphasized the SGE trainer.

Much more important for him is the future direction of the club. He is in constant contact with sports director Markus Krösche about this. “If Oliver Glasner is wanted by his employer in this project and finds himself in it, then there will be a contract extension. If not, then not,” the Eintracht coach clarified. “It has nothing to do with stalling or selfishness, and it’s not poker either. I just want to know where Eintracht is going. And there’s one or two things that aren’t quite clear yet.”
