RB Leipzig's sporting director Max Eberl has been antagonized by supporters of Borussia Mönchengladbach on his first return to Borussia Park. For a short time, a banner referring to the longtime Gladbach sporting director could be seen in the Nordkurve during Saturday's Bundesliga match. "First I'll get myself a sick bill, then I'll keep counting bill by bill," it read. In addition, Eberl was depicted as a pig on a banner. In addition, there was a protest with whistles of Gladbach fans against Leipzig.
Eberl had resigned exhausted at the end of January 2022 as sports director of Borussia Monchengladbach. The fact that the 49-year-old was brought a few months later with RB Leipzig in connection and ultimately took a position there, meets with many fans on rejection. Eberl had also been insulted with banners in the past.
