Success reports are special balm for the wound soul at SSV Reutlingen these days. After an autumn where the former second division stayed in the meantime nine games without defeat, the year 2022 began in the timely direction: a point from five games. On Wednesday, Googäger Onesi Kuengienda extended his contract until 2023, added to the U-19 striker Jan-Christian Küfuß continued to bound to the club. “I am a real Reutlinger, so I am pleased to be part of the new project at the crossing,” says Kuengienda, who already met seven times this season and continues to give as a guide player with 29 years as a guide players.

Back to the athletic presence: To make matters to the fact that you had to play 2022 against the two heavyweights of Stuttgart clubs (0: 1) and SGV Freiberg (0: 3), a massive injury duty comes: “Against Freiberg we only had nine gentlers, the rest we had to fill up from the U 19, “says Christian Grießer, board sports at the crossing. Which is not, even if you would like to lend the game against Freiberg, but the opponent did not want to get involved.

Anyway, the U 19 of the SSV, which has good opportunities for a promotion to the Bundesliga as a leaders of the A-Junior Oberliga, is becoming more and more developing into a source of hopeful young talents. Of course, something bigger clubs, which in contrast to Reutlingen have a young talent center, also falls on, but the example of Foot shows that one or the other despite all desires begins his mens career in Reutlingen.

The “like” is crucial

“We are a training course,” underlines the grid and wants to lead the club in small, for sustainable steps. Addressed to the environment, which still has a very lively fans scene and may possibly be impatient at too small steps, the sports board says almost a bit irritated: “I do not think of these three-year plans. What do you do if you do not do the goals achieved? Then you can repeat everything again. ” Of course, for GRIßer, however, is that he would like to climb with the SSV, but the “like” is crucial whether the club is organizationally prepared. “Only with volunteers will not go in the Regionalliga.” In other areas, the club is already top: “We have a good infrastructure, especially with the stadium. This also attracts players. And the fans scene is unique, such a scene in the league only have the Stuttgart clubs in the league.”

The club wants to do it in the men’s area similar to youth. Years ago, the maxim was also to play with all youth teams as possible in the highest league, and now after five, six years, the seed seems to rise so slowly. “We do not make a time pressure,” says Grußer, who wants to avoid diligence, prefer a false hopes to the environment, though he knows: “The region is thirsty for higher-class football.”

The clear goal is the Oberliga, because I do not know if 6. League would be possible so easily.

No quick shots, no actionism, for the clear commitment to continuity. However, these brilliant goals could be placed on a hard test in the course of the season, because the SSV is only two points above the descent zone and coach Maik Schütt has already announced his farewell to the end of the season. Will not there be a premature coach change required, it must be directed in the decisive weeks of one from the category “Firefighter”? “Our wish is to finish the season with Maik Schütt. We are convinced of him, his training and his analyzes are good,” says Griießer. A double-edged sword, so it sounds at least then, because on the one hand, the backing for Schütt is supposed to have an impact on the more and more adhering relegation battle, on the other hand, GRIßer says: “The clear goal is the Oberliga, because I do not know if 6, League so readily feasible. ” Finally, the club lives very much from the encouragement of his viewers. Sliding into the association league would be counterproductive. The hopes are now on the fact that the lazaret is at least somewhat. “We still have a few long-term injured,” said GRIEGER.

The contract conclusions with Kuengienda and Both Foot show that the new season is already planned intensively. Highest priority has therefore also to find a new coach from summer. “The players want to clarify, of course,” says Grider. With a promulgation is expected by next week at the latest. Previously, the away game at the basement competitor Sportfreunde village feature is waiting: “That will not be nice games, now it’s about scratching and biting,” says the Reutlinger’s board of the Extendous tasks and still sounds happy that his club’s chunks from Stuttgart -Degerloch and Freiberg has already brought behind in the game plan.
