Ralph Rangnick He held his first training session with the Austrian national football team in Bad Tatzmannsdorf on Monday morning. More than 300 spectators watched the plenary session, which lasted about 80 minutes and provided an idea of the first thoughts of the new team leader. Rangnick described his team as energetic and strong against the ball, as well as everything to suggest that the 63-year-old German prefers a three-man defense when he takes over.
Rangnick had 20 field players and his three goalkeepers available. Plus the Champions League winners David Alabawhich after the festivities in Real Madrid He should only join the team during the week, only the sick man was missing Philip Linhart. Like the person who was injured, both of them were not nominated Martin Hinterger Long-term candidates for regular positions in Central Defense. In her absence, the returning team is allowed gernott trauner Legitimate hopes to become the defensive leader in Rangnick’s debut in the Nations League in Croatia on Friday.
In addition to the Feyenoord Rotterdam Corps, Maximilian Weber of Salzburg, Stefan Bosch and Kevin Dansow are candidates for the starting lineup. In the last eleven-eleven training match, both teams defended with three defenses. Stefan Lehner appears to be seated on the right. On the other hand, the defensive left offensive stance forces Rangnick to improvise, as he already admitted during his presentation on Sunday. His options are Hans Wolff and Valentino Lazaro – both not very skilled players in the role.
The first goal in one ÖFBKonrad Laimer scored in the training match under Rangnick. Then Marco Friedel netted, Andreas Weimann hit the right net – the final 2:1 result for the presumed first set, which also included Marko Arnautovic, Christoph Baumgartner and Marcel Sabitzer. Nicholas Seewald and Xavier Schlager, called up by former Rangnick club RB Leipzig, seem suited to the free space in the midfield position next to Sabitzer and Laimer.
The intensity of the training was high from the start, especially when playing against the ball. In the training match, strikers Sasa Kalajdic and Michael Gregoric faced the opponent, just as Rangnick requested.
At 10:34 am, a quarter of an hour before the start of training, Rangnick first entered the field. The former Manchester United boss discussed in detail for the first time with his three assistants Lars Kornetka, Peter Berchtold and Honor Senell in the relatively cold conditions of southern Burgenland. The trio also intervened strongly in the exercises. Rangnick often found himself in the role of an observer, but then provided the crucial clues. His speeches – the first to Rangnick’s team at the hotel on Sunday evening – were so clear from the start, they could be heard from the ÖFB.
Many of the schoolchildren in attendance, who were allowed to use Monday morning for a trip to the soccer field, were even more impressed by the autographs after training ended. Despite the numerous discussions to come, Rangnick also took a few minutes to sign and take selfies. The ÖFB team trains in Bad Tatzmannsdorf until Thursday, in the evening the flight to Osijek will depart. From Saturday, Austria will prepare in Vienna for its Nations League matches at home against Denmark (6 June) and world champions France (10 June).
