Freiburg (dpa) – The relegation battle in the Bundesliga has not been a horror scenario at SC Freiburg so far, due to the experience of recent years.
“The topic has resonated with us for years without paralyzing us,” sports director Jochen Saier told the “kicker,” adding, “Since the revival in 2016, we’ve been in such difficult stages often enough as we are now. The risk of relegation is there too, because the teams around us are not the typical relegation teams. ”For the home game against promoted Arminia Bielefeld on Saturday, Freiburg is 14th in the table with eight points from ten games.
Saier said nothing had changed in terms of confidence in coach Christian Streich’s decisions in the early stages of the season. “This is not a one-man show from Christian Streich. Our technical staff is a heterogeneous team whose different perspectives flow into the decision-making process,” said Saier.
