Didi Kühbauer Interview
Surprise in the Austrian Bundesliga: Ex-rapid coach Didi Kühbauer returns to the sidelines after a five-month break and succeeds Andreas Wieland at the LASK. The black and white announced on Tuesday. The 51-year-old received a contract with the Linzern until the end of the 2023/24 season.

“In the past, Didi Kühbauer has proven that he can reach a team quickly and develop at the same time. Not only his successes at Rapid, but his statistics against LASK alone speaks for his qualities,” said sports director Radovan Vujanovic.

With Kühbauer, the LASK is still to qualify for European business. After the latest 0: 4 bankruptcy at WSG Tyrol, the athletics are currently in second place in the lower play-off. Should there be a defeat at Kühbauer’s premiere against TSV Hartberg on Saturday, the chances of the European Cup would be a long way off.

Kühbauer wants to call up “virtues”

“Due to its physical presence and fitness, the LASK was always one of the most unpleasant opponents in my time as a Bundesliga coach. These virtues have to be recalled in the current situation,” said Kühbauer, who together with his long-time assistant coach Manfred Nastl to Linz comes.

For Wieland, however, the time at the LASK came to an end. The 38-year-old took over the team on September interim of Dominik Thalhammer and received a contract in December until 2024. Except for the round of 16 in the Conference League, Wieland missed all season goals with the Upper Austrians.


Pampered by time at FC Schalke 04? Domenico Tedesco criticizes fans of RB Leipzig

In his time as head coach of FC Schalke 04, Domenico Tedesco regularly experienced one of the loudest stadiums in German football. However, after the first leg in the Europa League semi-final against the Rangers (1-0), the German-Italian showed himself disappointed by the fans of his current employer RB Leipzig.

It may have been the extremely tough game that the fans of RB Leipzig at the Europa League semi-final against the Rangers from Glasgow experienced on Thursday evening that the first whistles in the stadium were already heard in the middle of the second half.

On the one hand there was a separating host team, which, however, has little chance, and on the other hand, an ultra-defensive opponent who basically only wanted to defend his own goal.

So the patience of everyone present was extremely stressed. Some visitors to the Red Bull Arena had seen enough at some point and loudly informed his displeasure.

For coach Domenico Tedesco, whose team only scored the redeeming 1-0 winning goal in the final minutes, the whistles were a great annoyance.

“There are better moods, I am honest,” criticized the 36-year-old, who was hopelessly inferior to the approximately 7,000 guest fans who traveled in terms of volume, at “RTL+”.

Now the Leipziger travel to Scotland with a narrow lead, where they expect 50,000 fans as opponents in the Ibrox stage and a correspondingly heated atmosphere.

“We are not afraid, we look forward to it. It is a great pleasure to play in such a stadium. The Ibrox is special,” said Tedesco after the first leg victory.

The decision is made on May 5 in Glasgow – where the European Cup season of Borussia Dortmund ended in February.
