After his resignation, Bo Svensson says goodbye to the fans with a video statement. He fights back tears.
After his resignation, coach Bo Svensson said goodbye to the fans of FSV Mainz 05 with a personal video message.
“It shaped me so much. It will shape me for the rest of my life. The timing is simply necessary – also to recognize that no one is above the club. We have to combine all our strengths to master this situation. Unfortunately, that won’t happen “It’s mine, but it has to be that way,” said the 44-year-old in the Mainz video on their homepage.
One day after the clear cup exit (0:3) at Hertha BSC, Svensson announced that he was leaving the bottom of the Bundesliga. The previous U23 coach Jan Siewert will initially take over on an interim basis. “I’ve experienced ups and downs. It’s not so much about me, it’s about this club. That what distinguishes us is what has always distinguished us,” said Svensson, who fought back tears in the almost three-minute contribution.
The ex-player took over the position in January 2021 and saved Mainz from relegation in an almost hopeless situation. Two seasons followed in secure midfield. There has been no win in nine Bundesliga games this season. He experienced a special community in Mainz over a total of 16 years. “Once a Mainzer, always a Mainzer. That’s how it will always be,” Svensson concluded his remarks.
