At Gladbach Patrick Herrmann was on the siding, a change seemed the best option for players and club. But the 28-year-old bites his way through and has experienced an enormous boom in recent weeks.
Last summer, however, everything looked very different. Only a second choice at his Herzensverein, the winger faced a farewell.
"It's not a secret that there was a long talk with the coach, so I had to think about a change of mind, even if I did not want to, so I decided that I was trying to bite myself and get on the gas I wanted to show that I am here for Borussia and the team ", he reported in an interview with the" Express ".
In the winter VfB Stuttgart made an offer, Herrmann seemed to be jumping again before the jump : "I had to think about switching again, I did not want to worry about it, but I had to."
Top quota with three goals in two games
Finally remained Herrmann in Gladbach and started with minor teething problems in the new season. "After all the injuries it just feels good to play such a game again, it's good to note that you can still do it", Herrmann was happy about the 5-1 win over FC Augsburg.
Herrmann shone there as a double goal scorer and assistants. In the Europa League, the "Ur-Borussse" had previously prevented another collapse on international level with his last-minute equalizer against Basaksehir.
The offensive player's form curve shows a steep upward slope. Right at the top is Gladbach currently also in the Bundesliga table. "Every fan is allowed to look at the table until the next matchday, but of course you can be happy about that, but it's not the end anymore," declared the attacker who had been battered by injury in recent years.
Herrmann doubles: at the beginning of November he becomes a father. It may even give him an extra boost.
