Former national coach and professional soccer player Horst Köppel keeps his fingers crossed for his former club in the exciting fight for the German championship. “I have nothing against Bayern Munich. But personally I would of course prefer Borussia Dortmund to become champions,” said the former BVB coach, who won the cup with the club in 1989.

Moenchengladbach. Former national coach and professional soccer player Horst Köppel keeps his fingers crossed for his former club in the exciting fight for the German championship. “I have nothing against Bayern Munich. But personally I would of course prefer Borussia Dortmund to become champions,” said the former BVB coach, who won the cup with the club in 1989.

“Somehow it would be fairer for football if one team didn’t always win the championship. But most of the teams don’t have the financial means anyway,” said Köppel, who is celebrating his 75th birthday this Wednesday.

During his playing days, the attacking player won five championship titles with Borussia Mönchengladbach. He is still a regular visitor to the games in Borussia Park today. Köppel cannot understand that the Gladbach fans recently whistled at their own coach Daniel Farke.

“Of course, the expectations in Gladbach are still too high. But such a reaction is incomprehensible – no matter which coach. That’s unfair,” said Köppel, who worked as a trainer until 2009 and has also completed posts abroad in Austria, Japan and the United Arab Emirates. A few years ago he even had an offer from China, since then there have been no more inquiries. “It doesn’t necessarily have to be,” said the 1972 European champion.
