Steady increase: Füchse coach dreams of the Champions League

Berlin (dpa / bb) – At the handball Bundesliga team Füchse Berlin, the longing to reach the Champions League is growing more and more. “The Champions League is the biggest thing in handball. It’s also the dream of every coach to play there,” Foxes coach Jaron Siewert told the “Berliner Morgenpost” (Thursday) before the game against promoted ASV Hamm-Westfalen in the evening (7:05 p.m.). /Sky). For the young season, the 28-year-old wants to “play for all three titles as long as possible” in the Bundesliga, in the cup and in the European League.

In his third year as a Foxes trainer, Siewert sees a continuous increase. The team “made a step forward every year,” said the native of Berlin, “this year we once again strengthened ourselves in the positions where there was a vacancy. We don’t need to talk about the fact that we have a great team.” But since other teams are also striving for big goals, you have to “approach everything with a certain humility,” said Siewert: “In the end, it’s the little things that count.”

The coach himself is very grateful that he overcame the stroke he suffered in preparation thanks to quick help from the players, paramedics and doctors. “Such a stroke is simply a drastic experience, because it makes you realize that we all have a finite amount of time on earth,” said Siewert, who was “the old man again five or six days after the operation”: “At the Foxes almost stopped me so I wouldn’t come back too soon.”
