His first official business went into depth. He entered the mine in Bad Schlema. He looked at the world of underground miners working. Then he rose again. This is exactly what the 43-year-old intends to do with Violet.

Rost greeted the audience with “Glück Auf” and made a bold, self-confident look without overreacting.

“For me, it was important for the club to commit to a fresh start. We want to bring the DNA back to the Auer mountains. I think it’s important to bring my coaching team from Bayreuth. We don’t lose much time like that,” Rost said the reason why he chose Aue though From several offers. “It’s a small team of coaches, but a quality team.”

It also means that FCE is really looking for a whole new start. The old pigtails were cut. Sporting director Pavel Dochev, assistant coach Mark Hensel (36), athletics coach Marco Kampf (50) and goalkeeper coach Daniel Haas (38) have to leave FC Erzgeberg O.

New to the coaching staff are Tomislav Biblica (53, goalkeeper), Michael Gehret (41, athletics) and Oliver Georgiev (Assistant Coach/Video Analyst). Aue does not want to occupy the position of athletic director again at this time, but rather wants to spread it over several shoulders. “We have good people in our ranks,” said President Helge Leonhardt (63).

“I want to be a team for hungry people here,” Rost promised on the topic of team composition. The coach left open who could stay or who would come, but he made it very offensive that he would not allow himself to speak in the formation.

“When the boss says: Watch out, Timo. I want that one player.” But it does not fit my profile. Then I’m not a coach, maybe one or the other is shaking his head. It won’t happen with Timo Rost. Then Timo Rost will soon be a coach elsewhere. The president knows that.”

Commentary by Thomas Narendorff

Since September 2014, this was Lee’s ninth performance as a coach at FC Erzgebirge Aue. It should also be noted that there were no press conferences for Mark Hensel and later Pavel Dochev last season. They came and went again. So there are eleven in total.

Two coaches started and finished a season in these roughly eight years. Dotchev 2015/2016 and Daniel Mayer 2018/19. This alone illustrates the problem in Aue. Each person came up with the claim to form an era, to establish themselves permanently. For various reasons, no one did it. There was no continuity in the club’s most important sporting center. The coach’s chair has always had three legs from the start. I’ve already wiggled at the idea. Now Timo Rost can try it out.

The 43-year-old is also coming in with the intention of staying longer and building something in Oi. Now the club’s notorious for its angst must show they have the patience to let him work and give him time. Success cannot be planned, but it can be developed. The club management should support his back. Not only now, but also with the first vibrations.

The goal is to return. But if it happens in just two years, so be it. Success should be long-term, not short-term. Rost proved just that in Bayreuth. There they let him do that.
