Hanover 96: Christoph Dabrowski meets his Dusseldorf buddy Daniel Thioune – 2nd Bundesliga

“The victory in Aue was unbelievably good. Now it’s about continuing.” 96 Coach Christoph Dabrowski (43) before the Easter Saturday game against Fortuna Düsseldorf.

And for him, it’s about showing that he is the right coach for the coming season. Dabro has a contract until the end of June – and will start his promotional weeks with five games on Saturday. A win against in-form giants Düsseldorf would be a strong signal.

Dabro’s coach’s boyfriend, Daniel Thioune (47), is he still hanging out?

Review: A good four months ago, outsider Dabrowski was the clear winner. In the race for the successor of Zimmermann, it is the duel between Thioune and Uwe Rösler (last of Düsseldorf).

U23-Dabro should only be the emergency solution for HSV play. But with the 1-0 victory, the ex-pro first earned an extension until Christmas, then after the Ingolstadt victory (2-1) until the end of the season. Rösler still has no job, Thioune only returned to Düsseldorf on February 8.

Thioune fell behind, although Dabro said: “I didn’t think about who a competitor was. I was very happy with the chance I had. I didn’t notice what happened around.”

But with Thioune, things are going well at Fortuna. Eight matches without defeat, four wins and first place in the standings since the 22nd day (see table). Thioune moved from 16th place in relegation – after three points behind Sandhausen and four on 96 – ahead of the Reds and into 13th place with an eight-point cushion to crash rank.

The table of Thioune (last eight days)

1. Fortuna 16 points, 15:6 goals

2. Schalke 16 17:9

3. Nuremberg 16 15:10

4. Bremen 15 12:9

5. St. Pauli 14 12:10

Dabro praises: “Fortuna shows a completely different face under Daniel Thioune. There’s more passion in there, they have the curve.”

The Reds with the victory in Aue too. Dabrowski also started in 16th place at the start of December – and is in a position to outperform Thioune again today. A trio is needed. For this, Dabro demands: “You have to raise the bar in terms of power and aggressiveness.”

Then it’s not far from the final rescue – and the decision in terms of the coaching contract. “It would simplify planning if we got the necessary points as quickly as possible,” says Dabrowski. “And of course that’s our goal.”
