"I have encountered a team that is very well occupied. Maybe you just have to turn on a few set screws and have another idea how to play football. And you need results," explained the 47-year-old in an interview with "Image" the successful last games.

Thiune had taken the coaching office from the successless Christian Preußler in mid-February and was launched in his term with a surprise success against FC Schalke 04.

Thiome is already one step further in thought and has been able to assure a special premium for the league. "And that I can stand on the outside line in the next season in the 2nd league and have a squad available, which may attack up."

In the medium term, the traditional association should return to the Bundesliga after his condition. "It's never a damage when you develop upstairs," he made it clear.

As his secret recipe, which will pave the way there, the coach knows about his expertise above all his empathy. "I played football myself. I know how it is to sit with a winter jacket on the tribune or with a training jacket on the bench or shoot the gate from two meters."

His species come well with the players, he says. At least Thiune have the feeling of having something "awakened" in Dusseldorf.
