Union has resumed play, and supporters are honouring Coach Fischer.

Alas, Union Berlin: Köpenicker’s precipitous downfall also seems determined to continue against Eintracht Frankfurt. It was the twelveth time in a row that the Hessians had been defeated. Urs Fischer, the desperate coach, has the backing of both his president and the fans in the interim.

With a dejected expression, Urs Fischer plodded down the stairs towards the changing area; following his team’s twelfth consecutive loss, the Union Berlin coach was in no mood to retreat into the corner. Even after the heartbreaking 0:3 (0:2) loss to Eintracht Frankfurt and the drop to 16th place, the devoted supporters on the forest side continued to show their support with loud cheers. There were chants instead of whistles, even for the fishermen.

The group supported their coach as well. The coach is making every effort to get us out of there. He talks to us a lot, gives everything, and does everything. Given the state of the table, captain Christopher Trimmel didn’t hold back when he stated, “He can’t do anything more. We’ve been trying to get the team out of the relegation battle for weeks.” Although discussing the relegation struggle is tough, we must.”

It’s also evident that the pressure on the coach and the club is mounting in spite of all the support. With his fifth and sixth goals of the season, Omar Marmoush (2nd/14th) and Nacho Ferri (82nd) furthered the seriously injured Köpenickers’ predicament.
