Geretsried – Without Andre Maier and Dominik Kühberger, Olympic Geretsried is preparing for the second half of the season. Maier returns to his home club FC Geretsried. "He hardly has any time to train professionally and often has to work long hours on Saturdays," explains trainer Tasso Fytanidis. Dominik Kühberger, changes back to the relegation group ASV Antdorf, from where he came to Olympic last summer. The two have scored 16 of the club's 22 goals so far.
Costa Bozaris is to fill the gap by football friends Geretsried. “He showed in the first preparatory games that he was really good. He helps the team and can sometimes hold the ball in the front, ”says Fytanidis, impressed by the veteran, who scored two goals in the tests against FC Megas Alexandros (4: 1) and SV Eurasburg-Beuerberg (4: 0) contributed.
The Greeks also have to do without Ruslan Klauser (changes to soccer friends) and Michael Räß (who is suffering from a persistent ankle injury). In addition, Berat Saiti is also threatened to fail in the longer term due to an operation. For this, Philip-Christopher Kinder, Jasser Saiti and Ioannis Moustopoulos, who played irregularly in the first half of the season for various reasons, are back with enthusiasm.
Nevertheless, the view in the table is initially down. The ascent ranks are ten or eleven points behind. On the other hand, the distance to the first relegation relegation place is only five points. "We have to quickly get the necessary points so that we have nothing to do with the descent," emphasizes Fytanidis. He had buried the hope for promotion for this season, but one could have a say in the promotion race anyway. "We're still playing against everyone at the top," says the Olympic coach and promises: "We will cause problems for everyone."
