1. FC Union coach, Nenad Bjelica, was seen pacing through his coaching zone and gesturing wildly during the team’s first game after serving his suspension. Despite appearing tense at the start of the match, he was relieved at the end, hugging his coaching staff and saying, “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 aside by 1. FC Union as they focused on their win against VfL Wolfsburg. With 21 points, Union has managed to catch up with the lower midfield and increase their safety cushion on the relegation zone.
The team has rediscovered three old strengths: home strength, defensive stability, and goals from set pieces. However, their offense remains a construction site, and the game isn’t always pleasant to watch. Nevertheless, the overall trend is positive in terms of defensive stability. Despite some luck in their fourth home win, Union’s defensive trend is positive.
Moving forward, the team needs to carry this progress into an away game as their last victory abroad came in August. The coach has given them two days off as a reward for their strong performance.
In summary, 1. FC Union’s recent win against VfL Wolfsburg brought relief for coach Nenad Bjelica after serving his suspension. The team has rediscovered some of its old strengths but still needs to work on its offense to sustain its success in future games.
