Borussia Mönchengladbach’s focus for this season is on damage limitation in the Bundesliga, aiming for a single-digit place in the table. However, attention is already fully on plans for the coming season. Internally, it has been decided that manager Daniel Farke will get the chance to rebuild the squad according to his ideas, unlike his predecessor Adi Hütter.
When Farke took office on July 1, 2022, he was promised several top players by Max Eberl, the former sporting director of Borussia Mönchengladbach. However, these plans fell through due to the lack of budget for new signings, with Eberl unable to sell any of the club’s expensive stars.
Farke has made it clear that he wants to improve the squad’s final strength, speed, and resilience in the next transfer window. He has named excessive comfort and laziness as serious deficits that need to be fixed.
The manager has emphasised the need for the team to appreciate every single Bundesliga game, even against weaker opponents. He has identified a lack of quality in defending themselves when things go badly or when they are behind in a match.
Gladbach has a significant problem with missed chances, and Farke admits the team needs to improve externally to address this issue. He is also frustrated by the laziness in sprints and intensive runs, emphasising the importance of chasing after every lost ball and running into every hole.
Farke is keen to rebuild the squad according to his taste and bring in new players to address the team’s shortcomings. He is determined to lead Mönchengladbach to success in the league, with a higher finish than the current tenth place.
