Dynamo Dresden: Did Becker give Markus Beginning a second chance after the vaccination pass scandal?
Written by Tina Hoffman
Dresden – She’d be an unsurpassable character in terms of blasting, but upon closer inspection, it makes a lot of sense: Holt Dynamo Dresden Sports Director Ralph Becker (51) his former coach to promote Marcus Beigning (47) to the Elbe?
All of Germany watched the start of the match for several months after he abruptly resigned from SV Werder Bremen on November 20, 2021, a few hours before the important match against Schalke 04.
The reason was investigations against him and his assistant coach Florian Young (36) on charges of forging the vaccination card. It was started by the Bremen Health Department. He initially protested his innocence until he finally admitted in January that he had indeed obtained a false passport. The boy also admitted.
He was initially sentenced to a fine of 36,000 euros in March. The German Football Association had already suspended the coach and his assistant in January until June 30, 2023 and also sentenced them to pay 20,000 euros initially.

“In light of the admissions they have made, it is justified to suspend part of the ban on monitoring to give them the opportunity to make a new commitment for the 2022/2023 season,” said Hans E. Lorenz, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Federation. DFB Court.
Dynamo Dresden: Becker and Beijing promoted to second division with Holstein Kiel
Testing for both will begin on June 10, 2022 – and that may be the correct answer to the question of why it took Dynamo so much time to introduce the new coach.
Because it was clear for a long time that Guerino Capretti (40) would not continue after relegation. In the background, Becker has been planning a landing for some time.
It is no coincidence that he coincided with the beginning.

After all, they both came to Holstein Kiel in the summer of 2016 and had a very successful time together. The Storks were promoted to the second Bundesliga in 2017 in their first season under Markus Anfang.
Immediately after that they played a great season and finished third, they even fought for promotion to the Bundesliga in relegation against Wolfsburg, but missed out on that after two defeats.
Dynamo Dresden: Ralph Becker knows Marcus Begining well
So Becker knows exactly what athletic qualities a starter must display, and he’ll also see the person he’s worked with successfully for two years.
And that’s exactly what could make a restart in Dresden possible now. Not because of Becker’s pity, but because the athletic director will be measured more than ever by his future successes and doesn’t commit to “the pig in a poke” from the start, but he knows exactly which coach will put him on the sidelines.
Under normal circumstances, commitment from the start in Dresden would have been unimaginable given his career in the third division.
In 2018 he moved to 1. FC Köln, but was released there shortly before the end of the season in first place in the second division. It was especially difficult for him at the end of April because his father Dieter only suffered a heart attack in the stands on April 10 during a catch-up match against MSV Duisburg at the Rhein-Energie Arena and had to be put in an artificial coma.
Marcus Anfang had an ugly exit in Darmstadt before he came to Bremen
He began to fear for his father’s life for days. After about a week and a half, his father is saved, but his son Marcus will lose his job. Then continue in the 2020/21 season in SV Darmstadt 98where he got the most out of it and finished in seventh place.
But then there were a lot of problems with the “lilies”, because the starters did not want to stay despite the contract and public pressure to make their way to SV Werder Bremen himself, and finally fired the coaching team of Hessians thanks to pay.
Then there was the fake vaccination card scandal. Beginning and Young presented them to the Bremen Health Department because they did not want to be in quarantine after their player Marco Friedel tested positive. The office finally reported the two because the authorities noticed inconsistencies in the two passports.
Particularly snappy: thanks to the fake passport, Beginning also celebrated the carnival on November 11 in Cologne under 2G + conditions. On March 19, 2022, the starter then spoke for the first time in the current sports studio on ZDF, publicly apologized and said, “I can understand anyone who doesn’t want that and doesn’t accept it. You wish you’d have a second chance, but I can’t foresee that.”
Now this dynamo could be Marcus Anfang’s second chance. Next week there will be clarity on whether the 47-year-old will take over for black and yellow from June 10, thus starting the probation period, and whether preparation will begin on June 16.
