Completely euphoric, his players stormed the press conference and missed their success coach a juicy beer shower. Driefing, but visibly happy, the 56-year-old found a few terms for the next international adventure: “Madness, incredible, fantastic, extraordinary.”

Fifth place in the table, the move into the Europa League – and all of this in the third season in the Bundesliga. “If someone had told me that when I signed in the 2nd division at the time, I would have declared that crazy,” said Grischa Prömel after the 3-2 (2-0) against VfL Bochum at “Sky”.

But the European Cup fairy tale of the Köpenickers continues and after the qualification for the Conference League last season they went one better this time.

Union Berlin celebrates red-white party

Even Oliver Ruhnert had to rub his eyes. “You have to pinch yourself to believe it,” said Union’s Berlins director: “No expert had it on the screen, and I have to honestly say that I didn’t have that either.”

The red and white party then continued on the stadium balcony, where the supporters accompanied their European heroes with “Eisern Union” speaking choirs.

Prömel leaves Union with melancholy


Previously, Prömel (5th), who played his last game in the Union jersey, and Taiwo Awoniyi (25th, trading) Union had given the lead. The latter scored the redeeming goal (88th) shortly before the end.

Ending the season in fifth place is “incredible for such an association as Union Berlin,” said Prömel, who “hurt an incredibly hurt”, to leave the club towards TSG Hoffenheim.

In Köpenick, meanwhile, even those responsible do not know how they are happening. “The whole club is currently gradually setting up with the fact that all of this is not a dream,” said Ruhnert.

And despite all the joy, Fischer was glad that he can now try to “understand what happened” on vacation.

Union still has a little time to process everything. It will be real at the latest from September 8th when the group phase of the Europa League starts.

On the eve, Hellmann wants to inquire at the usual council meeting in the responsible persons of the Spanish prospect club also according to the state of the Super League plans. Catalans belong to the twelve founding members. “We always have to expect the topic to come back around the corner,” warns Hellmann.

Its goal in the next five years is: strengthening the football medium in Europe. “The large number of European participants has the same worries and hardships and these are not the same clubs, which are back in the quarterfinals of the Champions League,” emphasizes the SGE CEO. The club organization ECA founded in 2008 must “be broken up in its rigidity”, so associations on the order of Eintracht Frankfurt received more co-determination.

Eintracht before “Century Game” against Barça

“After we found that we were too very spectator for a long time, the harmony as the German football overall, we have to come into an active role,” says Hellmann.

“We do not have a work, no patrapults and a state fund that catapulted us to the head of the Champions League. With us, things have to work on our own strength,” explains Hellmann, who began during his ten-year members of the Executive Board as a CFO and since April 2021 as CEO FUNDED. Since 2012, the 50-year-old ambitious plans have been around, such as the self-marketing of the club, the construction of the Proficamps, the takeover of stadium operation, the opening of offices in Beijing and New York and the integration of the footballers of the 1st FFC Frankfurt.

“If you are ten years board in the Bundesliga, the voice has more weight than before. It will also be the task of Eintracht Frankfurt, to contribute stronger both in the association work and in political work in Germany and Europe. It is too Early to decide whether this is associated with the question of a candidacy for an election office, “says Hellmann, who is considered one of the candidates for the DFL Presidium, which is re-elected in the summer.

In a rather chance-poor game, the Frankfurter missed that but therefore had to adhere. In the extension, Betis was even better in the game, the Eintracht had aluminum happiness. At the end, however, the hosts got the second or third air and threw everything forward again. A free kick from Filip Kostic landed on Martin Hinteregger and Guido Rodriguez in the first minute of the rewriting time of extension to the 1: 1 in the gate of the guests. It was the latest hit of the Europa League story.

What followed was pure ecstasy in the Frankfurt Stadium, which was filled with 25,000 spectators. “This is of course a beautiful story of football to win the game so.

That’s football, but we play football,” also Trapp To the right words for this emotional moment he had experienced shortly before.

Also Youngster Ansgar Knauf, who could have worried with his great chance (hit only the latte) earlier for a little more peace, was out of the moment. “It’s hard to put into words,” the 20-year-old. “That’s just a horny feeling, these are the nights for which you play football. We have done everything up again and made it in the end. We are overjoyed that we are in the quarterfinals.”
