Monchengladbach coach facing player backlash

The future of Borussia Monchengladbach coach Hans Meyer is shrouded in uncertainty after it was revealed the squad had written a letter of complaint over the exclusion of several players from a mid-season training camp.

Meyer left Uwe Gospodarek, Marcel Ndjeng, Alex Voigt, Samy Coulibaly, Sascha Rosler and Sharbel Touma out of the party for last month's trip to Gran Canaria and the group have been training with the reserves since.

Bild newspaper reported Gladbach president Rolf Konigs was sent a letter last month in which the squad voiced their anger over the decision.

And general manager, Max Eberl, confirmed Meyer had come in for criticism from his players.

"We are taking this letter from the players very seriously," Eberl said. "We have tried to explain to them why these players had to be released. We simply need to work as a smaller squad and we need peace and quiet to do that."

Captain Filip Daems explained the reasoning behind the letter.

"With this letter, we wanted to show our solidarity with the affected players," he said. "We have always stuck together well as a team. This could have happened to any of us."

Promoted Gladbach have struggled on their return to the Bundesliga this season and prop up the standings with just three wins from 19 league matches.
