ROSE RETURNS TO GLADBACH
Rose joined Die Fohlen in 2019 and quickly helped the team to become a very attacking and entertaining side. Under Rose, Gladbach played 88 matches. He won 41, drew 19 and lost 28 matches to end up with respectable 1.61 points per match rate.
“I think Marco Rose doesn’t deserve to be booed at all. He’s a great person, someone who wrote a big page for the history of this club, by making it to the knockout round of the Champions League for the first time. He’s a professional, and he went for a change in his career, simple as that.” – said, Hofmann.
One major issue that bothered the fans where the manner in which Rose left his club. His departure from Gladbach came midseason. This did make an impact on the results of the team, as the players started to lose confidence.
Rose had an unimpressive start to his Dortmund career and is currently 3rd in the league table. Gladbach on the other hand is having a poor start and is currently in 16th place.
