TSV 1860 Munich II - courage and carelessness - sport in the region
Talent does not protect against mistakes: Under the new coach Frank Schmöller, the U21 Löwen makes two "brutal mistakes" and is subject to promoted Donaustauf.
Even before his first competitive match, Frank Schmöller knew the dangers of his new job. "Part of the youth was researching," said the new coach of the TSV 1860 Munich II after the preparation. So many such young players in a heap were something new for Schmöller, he had been training a seasoned team for years with SV Pullach. Now he works with talent. And that they are prone to mistakes, he got to feel on the first matchday. Against promoted SV Donaustauf his team made two petty errors in the midfield before the break, both of which led to goals. At the end it was 1: 2 (0: 2).
Schmöller spoke of "two very brutal individual mistakes" that made Nikica Filipovic's double pack (10th and 18th) possible. But he added, "Young players make mistakes, and we have to give them that." Shortly after the early 0-2, goalkeeper Tom Kretzschmar kept his team in the game with a great reflex (24.), towards the end of the first half the TSV became more stringent: guest keeper Daniel Hanke parried against Antonio Trograncic (45.).
After the break, the Munich benefited from a mistake: Noel Niemann got a far too short back pass played in the legs and completed placed in the right corner (55.). The TSV managed to push the guests who were still physically present in the first half, Schmöller - now in a T-shirt and not in a rain jacket - energetically urged his team. Up to the penalty area, the quick and short-based combinations were also handsome, controlled in the guest sixteen, the young lions but also rarely came after the break. In the final stages of the pressure of the Munich was always larger, the promoted could hardly free himself - Hanke but defeated Niemann chance to 2: 2 (81). Schmöller liked the "courage" with which his team had performed after the break, he had seen "a lot of positives": "We were a bit further than I thought."
