Speaking in an interview with Bild, Eintracht Frankfurt sporting director Markus Krösche doesn’t feel compelled to extend the contract of head coach Oliver Glasner prematurely and remains calm on the situation.
“Oli still has a long contract,” said Krösche. “He likes it here and is a big part of the success. But neither of us are focused on that right now, we are solely concentrating on achieving as much as possible in the coming weeks and months. There is also no deadline or a point by when we have to sit down together. It fits very well between Eintracht and Oliver and I’m sure he has no other thoughts. We will take is easy.”
Glasner has a contract with Eintracht Frankfurt until 2024 and was a major part of last season’s Europa League success, SGE’s first European Cup in 42 years, after beating Rangers in the final.
Speaking to to Frankfurter Rundschau earlier in the month, Glasner also discussed his contract situation at Eintracht Frankfurt, stating he has no thoughts about an early extension and that he’s focused on the current season.
Eintracht Frankfurt currently occupy fourth, the final Champions League spot, and are level points with Union Berlin, two points ahead of Borussia Dortmund. Die Adler’s Bundesliga campaign resumes against Schalke on January 21.
Glasner (48), born in Schärding, Austria, was also a candidate for the Austria job before the OFB opted for Ralf Rangnick, but hasn’t ruled out a potential job in the future.
