Mönchengladbach (AP) - Borussia Mönchengladbach's assistant coach René Marić is annoyed by his chat with Dortmund striker Erling Haaland after the cup on Tuesday evening, which was captured by TV cameras.
“I was and am so pissed off and sad that I couldn't think of any cameras.
Stupid, ”wrote the assistant coach of the Bundesliga soccer team on Twitter.
The assistant to head coach Marco Rose, who is moving to BVB for the coming season, described the scene as "naive, emotional and thoughtless".
Like Haaland, Marić was previously employed by RB Salzburg.
Gladbach fans had criticized Marić after the 0-1 defeat in the quarter-finals of the DFB Cup online.
The 28-year-old assistant coach explained: "After the final whistle, I was at the other end of the coaching zone and a former player was the only one who came to comfort."
He knew, wrote the Austrian, “that this has a negative and wrong effect on the fans at this moment.
In this respect, I will accept the insults with a certain understanding & take responsibility for them. "
