BERLIN (AP) — Borussia Mönchengladbach captain Lars Stindl missed a penalty and the team’s losing streak stretched to six games across all competitions at Augsburg in a 3-1 Bundesliga defeat on Friday.
Gladbach has lost every game since the club announced that coach Marco Rose will be joining league rival Borussia Dortmund next season.
The latest defeat will strengthen fans’ calls to let him go before Tuesday’s Champions League game against Manchester City. Gladbach has a two-goal deficit to make up against City from the first leg of their last-16 tie.
“We’d rather have a week’s training to prepare for the core tasks at the moment, namely points in the Bundesliga,” said Rose, whose team looks likely to lose further ground in the race for European qualification places.
