1. FC Union coach, Nenad Bjelica, was seen pacing wildly through his coaching zone during the team’s first game after serving his suspension. Despite appearing tense at the end of the match, he hugged his staff and said, “It was very emotional for us and it’s great to get three points after such a fight.”
The recent protest with tennis balls that almost led to the game being abandoned was pushed away by 1. FC Union, who focused on their win against VfL Wolfsburg. With 21 points, Union has managed to catch up with the lower midfield and increase the safety cushion on the relegation zone.
The team has rediscovered three old strengths: home strength, defensive stability, and goals from set pieces. The offense remains a construction site, but the overall trend is positive in terms of defensive stability. Despite a lot of luck in their fourth home win, Union’s defensive trend is positive.
The recent progress needs to be carried into an away game, with the last victory abroad coming in August. The coach is giving the team two days off as a reward for their strong performance.
