Why Thuram explodes again in Gladbach

Tikus is back! Marcus Thuram is finally showing the performances again this season for which he was celebrated in his early days at Gladbach. On the one hand, this is due to a much improved physical condition and clear tasks on the pitch. On the other hand, the relationship with the coach. Now the Frenchman could follow the example of Hofmann and Plea.

The smile is back! After a season to forget, Marcus Thuram’s world at Borussia Mönchengladbach is completely different. Since trainer Daniel Farke took charge of the foals in the summer, Tikus has finally been able to build on his strong early days performances.

For comparison: the 25-year-old Frenchman scored three goals in the entire preseason. In addition, only a meager attendance. After seven days of Bundesliga 22/23, Tikus has already reached this mark. There are also two assists in the Bundesliga and three goals and one assist in the DFB Cup.

A clear change in position was also decisive for the return to previous form. With Adi Hütter, Thuram played mainly on the left flank. Under Farke, he established himself as a centre-forward early on. The new foal trainer is said to have made it clear to Tikus early on that he needed to get in shape. “From that point on, he worked really, really hard, taking every extra shift in the weight room with him. He hit another level of fitness,” Farke enthused. sports image

The new level of fitness can be read first of all from the deployment time of Thuram. He has not missed a minute of the game this season. And his top speed is back to where he used to be. Although he was “only” 34.6 km / h on the previous lap, his maximum value is already 35.7 km / h. That means fifth place in the ranking of the entire league.

Farke Thuram paved the way back to his old force not only with clear announcements and demands. Above all, the sensitive Frenchman had missed the pats. Farke recognized it from the start. “Marcus has his heart in the right place. He is an emotional player who needs to feel comfortable and safe. In an atmosphere where players feel valued and accepted, he always performs better,” Farke said.

That was exactly what didn’t happen with Hütter last year. Above all, the French players went after Hütter 90 minutes-Information treated extremely cold.

The colts are definitely back on the right track under Farke. This doesn’t just apply to Thuram, but to the entire team. The subject of the expiry of the contracts remains a burning one in the Lower Rhine.

More recently, Jonas Hofmann and Alassane Plea extended their contracts beyond 2023. Noisy sports photo The two should have an exit clause of just over ten million euros.

Thuram’s contract ends, as of now, after the season. While he was previously up for sale for a decent fee, new sporting manager Roland Virkus made it clear from the start that the striker would stay. Virkus could proceed in a similar way to Hofmann and Plea.

Media: Thuram extends his contract and gets an exit clause. In the best of cases, he stays at Borussia for more years. Otherwise, the foals would at least charge a fee. There have been some arguments for Thuram to stay since this season!
