Axel Hellmann, a board member of Eintracht Frankfurt, addressed Oliver Glasner's recent outburst during a post-match press conference. The trainer's behavior has caused him to lose support from the front office and has hinted at a potential separation at the end of the season. Hellmann, who will return to his full-time role as a club administrator this summer, expressed his disapproval of the team's posture in Saturday's league loss to Hoffenheim and criticised Glasner's conduct which resulted in his being sent off. "It was neither right nor proper to react like that," Hellmann told BILD-TV on Sunday. "What I absolutely cannot understand is that you take this disappointment out on a journalist who is doing his job. I think Glasner himself knows that this wasn't the best way to react. "We have to ask ourselves if we're set with a forward-looking posture. We're coming in far below our expectations. "It's a debate that we didn't start as a club either. It arose because our offer [the club's offer tendered to Glasner for a contract extension] was not accepted." Harm Osmers, the match official, also booked Mario Götze and Kevin Trapp for expressing dissent. Glasner's strained relationship with club management at his previous coaching job with VfL Wolfsburg ended after two seasons, and his departure from Eintracht Frankfurt is imminent after the DFB-Pokal Final on June 3rd. Possible replacements for the trainer are already being discussed.
