In the focus of criticism: Markus Kraetschmer, who should take his hat off in the opinion of organized fan clubs. The fact that the Austria board announced after the incidents at the 0: 2 against the LASK – the guests fans made with pyrotechnics unpleasant attention to themselves – announced a crackdown, lets the waves go up. Kraetschmer should have issued "law-and-order-pregnant reprisals", it was said in an open letter from the fan scene. This turned out to be behind the team. Of which against Mattersburg of it was nothing to see.
Kraetschmer replied after the play on the expressed criticism. He knew that the protests were so acceptable. But it is clear that the club will not accept a behavior of the fans like that in Pasching. "These people are being explored, they have no room left. That remains our clear line. And that is appreciated by other people in the Austria family, "said Kraetschmer. His hand to a "reasonable dialogue" remains stretched out.
Austria defeats Mattersburg
The Vienna Austria has taken a small step out of the crisis with a 2-1
"If I may wish something, even if it's the last thing that fans are currently interested in, it's that the team is supported, "Kraetschmer said, referring to the upcoming games at Admira and home to Hartberg. The allegation of the fans, he miscalculated in the stadium construction and Austria was therefore financially hard hit, denied the economics board. One works "intensively every day" to increase the funds.
International break just happens
The international break seems to be apt to cool one's mind. Planned is also a conversation between the fans and team representatives like Captain Alexander Grünwald. This burst in the past few days, with the possible reasons for it diverge. Grünwald hoped for rosier times: "With victories you can create the basis for that all get along better," said the midfielder, who against Mattersburg the 1-0 (14) succeeded – and celebrated his goal emotionally in front of the East stand.
After a 2: 0 by Thomas Ebner (50th), Austria seemed on course thanks to one of the better performances of the season, but Mattersburg's goal by Patrick Bürger (77th) left the Favoritner in good shape. Not only Ebner breathed after the final whistle. "The win was incredibly important because there was a lot at stake," said the strong midfielder who, like Manprit Sarkaria, was in the starting eleven. Both recommended themselves for further missions. The 4-2-3-1 system practiced by Ilzer for the first time gave the Austria more stability.
Mattersburg remains in the low
Mattersburg was also a grateful opponent. The Burgenlaender found for one hour at all not in the game and only became stronger after coach Franz Ponweiser sat with the substitution of citizens on more risk. Austria staggered towards the final whistle. "Then there is a lot of uncertainty in the minds of the players," Ilzer analyzed. He interpreted the only third victory in the seventh home game of the season as "an important step in the right direction."
Mattersburg remain in deep lows after their fifth defeat in a row. Coach Ponweiser admitted that they had hoped for more in an even struggling to form Austria. Emblematic of the current situation but were conceded goals after two corners. The almost continuously playing for SVM since 2005 warned citizens of panic actions: "It is a difficult situation, but in Mattersburg we know how to deal with it. We have to stay calm – but we know that we have to score again as well. "
