Borussia Mönchengladbach takes up rugby in training / Germany / Borussia Mönchengladbach /

Glued to the body or not, Gladbach players finally had the right to use their hands.

This Monday morning, Borussia Mönchengladbach players had the good (or not) surprise of seeing rugby balls on the training grounds. Coach Daniel Farke has prepared a program on the theme of the oval ball. After learning the rules, all the players got ready to play, and the assistant coach, now a referee, was uncompromising.

To pay ImageDaniel Farke attributed himself to the reasons for his choice: “Of course, on the one hand, it was supposed to be a fun factor. But rugby and football also have some similarities. In any case, it is important that no one bless themselves during such an exercise. » If this sequence served more as a game than anything else, Marcus Thuram obviously broke everything in discipline. “It was fun to watch Tikus impose his body against four or five men” son explains the coach.

Only back passes? We know a bunch of Ligue 1 midfielders who would be excellent at rugby.
