After three wins in a row, VfB Hallbergmoos would have liked to play twice, but the winter break in the Bayernliga, which was heralded early by Corona, also has its advantages.
- The bottom line is that sporting director Anselm Küchle can live quite well with the rest of the games being moved to the New Year.
"It's nice for us to be on top of the line," says Anselm Küchle, looking at the two teams who are hibernating on the relegation points one point behind.
"We knew that we needed a golden November with points," says Küchle, "and now we're going into the break with the good feeling of being able to keep up in the league." The sporting director still has a few tasks to do before he can may devote himself to the Christmas delicacies.
At the top of the list is Peter Beierkuhnlein, who as an interim coach brought VfB back on track with three wins in a row.
"He successfully changed tactics and gave the players confidence," says Küchle.
As an example, he cited Tobias Krause, who looked transformed in the last few weeks and, as an almost logical consequence, also scored his first Bayern league.
Future of the interim trainer still unclear
With interim coach Peter Beierkuhnlein the question is now whether you can keep the central defender as a player and how that can work alongside the new player-coach Matthias Strohmaier. Küchle announced that they would sit down in the next few days and discuss everything. The plan is to end the winter break on January 17th and then start the preparation with the new trio of coaches. Since the league operations are to be moved forward a week in spring due to the two canceled game days, the start of preparations could also be corrected.
But now Küchle is waiting for the further course of the pandemic and enjoying the table in his quiet way, where VfB Hallbergmoos, which has meanwhile been worryingly beaten, will be allowed to spend the next few months on a relegation site.
