A sequel is expected to be unveiled later this week. On Sunday, Klose was still optimistic after the surprising 1-1 draw at leader Salzburg.

However, the points won did not seem to convince those responsible in Altach. “In the course of our analysis, we came to the decision that the team needed a new impetus to achieve our goal of staying in the league, to which we subordinate everything else,” stated sports director Georg Festetics.

After the last round of the basic round and the subsequent division of points on Sunday, the Rheindörfler tackled the relegation battle in the qualifying group with 17 points from the very back. In front of that are Ried, Hartberg (18 each) and the WAC (21) at least in the immediate vicinity.

Commitment attracted attention

Klose’s commitment in June of the previous year had caused a stir. After stints with Bayern Munich’s U17s and as an assistant coach for the Bayern pros, the 44-year-old first worked as a head coach in the men’s division in Ländle. “Right from the start it was just this positive feeling that I have to have, that I’m in the right place here,” Klose explained when he took office.

Nine months later, after four wins and 15 defeats in 22 league games, only trace elements are left. The last full success so far dates from October 23, in the last nine games since then you have only got three points. The youngest of them succeeded on Sunday in Salzburg. But the sign of life from an obviously intact and visibly committed team in Salzburg was obviously not enough.
