The mood at TuS Geretsried has increased noticeably.
This is not only due to the recent 1-0 win against ASV Dachau, but also to the fact that a number of regular players are available again for the home game against TSV Grünwald.
Geretsried – There is a great mood among the national league footballers of TuS Geretsried.
At least assistant coach Daniel Dittmann, who is solely responsible for the next two games due to the long-planned family vacation of interim coach Hans Schneider, exudes pure optimism.
The 22-year-old enthuses that his state of mind is “outstanding”, and not just because of last week's 1-0 win against ASV Dachau.
A full squad for the home game on Saturday against TSV Grünwald (3 p.m.) also makes the coach happy.
Because Srdan Ivkovic and Fabijan Podunavac as well as Patriot and Leonardo Lajqi are back from their vacations, he has "a luxury problem", according to Dittmann, who has nominated 18 field players and two goalkeepers.
"We can draw on the full, so I'm absolutely positive.
But what is much more important: the players are in a positive mood too, everyone is looking forward to the next game.”
And a different caliber awaits TuS with TSV Grünwald than recently with the climber from Dachau.
"It's an established national league team, they'll play cheeky football," the coach speculates.
"They didn't start the season that badly.
They will challenge us to the maximum.” However, the busy trainer (in addition to the first team, he trains the TuS state league U19 and is also loudly involved in the reserve) must admit that he did not have time in advance to train the eleven from Coach Florian de Prato to take a close look at himself.
After all, the Munich suburbs have left the field as winners four times in the previous six league games and recently won clearly against TSV Ampfing (6:1) and TSV Brunnthal (3:0).
Ultimately, according to Dittmann, it "doesn't matter at all
what the opponent is doing.
It's important that we put our game on the pitch." And the motto against the fifth-placed team is: "We want to set the tone."
With a view to the tactical orientation, this means having “good energy” when in possession of the ball and pressing as intensively in the game against the ball as you did against Dachau last time.
"We always want to have the ball.
If we don't have the ball, we're angry," says the TuS coach.
His wish for the outcome of the game: three points for the hosts - so that the mood on Jahnstraße continues to be at a high level.
After all, the Geretsrieders also won the last state league duel against Grünwald on April 28, 2018 at home 4:2.
