Will SpVgg Unterhaching play the relegation to the 3rd league or not? The question was not answered on Friday evening after the game in Schweinfurt.
Munich/Unterhaching – The 1-2 defeat of the Hachingers on Friday evening in the meaningless game against 1. FC Schweinfurt will remain no more than an entry in the statistics of the 2022/23 Regionalliga season. The guests have long since celebrated the championship and are reportedly preparing for relegation.
"You always have to ask my bosses something like that. Since they're not here today, I can only take the question with me and ask it again at home."
Sandro Wagner on the question of whether he will play the relegation with Haching.
Whether the team from the Munich suburb will actually compete at Energie Cottbus on June 7 for the first leg for promotion to the third division remained open on Friday evening. "I'm just a football coach, a simple salaried employee," coach Sandro Wagner mused at the press conference and elegantly passed the ball in the direction of the presidium: "They always have to ask my bosses something like that. Since they're not here today, I can only take the question with me and ask it again at home."
The journalists present acknowledged the smug statement with loud laughter, some even applauded. "We will announce in due course whether we can overcome the hurdle," President Manni Schwabl said last week on ARD. When asked by Fußball Vorort/FuPa Oberbayern on Saturday afternoon, the club said the decision would be communicated "in the course of the next few days". An exact date has not yet been set.
Is SpVgg Unterhaching playing in the relegation play-offs: Is it up to Karim Adeyemi and Borussia Dortmund?
Whether and how the coming season in the 3rd league can be financed, if necessary, is likely to have been discussed and illuminated by those responsible in Unterhaching from all directions in recent weeks. Or is there a factor that the club does not have in its own hands? It is conceivable that Karim Adeyemi and Borussia Dortmund will play a role.
Schwabl is known for his negotiating skills. It is therefore quite possible that the ex-professional has negotiated a bonus for the match association if the Black and Yellows are crowned champions in the 1st Bundesliga on Saturday. If Edin Terzic's team pulls up the bowl at around 17.30 p.m. in Signal Idnua Park, jubilation could also break out in Unteraching. Five years after his departure from the suburbs, the 21-year-old would once again be the "saviour" of Haching's goals. (Jörg Bullinger)
