Thorsten Röcher: "We have lost the luck of playing like a storm"



With Thorsten Röcher, SK Sturm Graz lost a valuable piece of offensive puzzles last summer.

With its technique and its operation, the left end of the way to the runner-up and the victory of the cup was an important factor. A clause opened the way to foreign countries, Röcher changed for a rumor of 1.25 million euros to FC Ingolstadt.

There the situation is serious. Before the return of Tuesday to SpVgg Greuther Fürth (8:30 p.m.), is the last "Schanzer". With Jens Keller and Stefan Leitl and Alexander Nouri, the third coach is already working this season.

"The first semester was a great experience for me," says Röcher Laola1Interview. Sturm continues to watch it, as confirmed by sports director Günter Kreissl.

"I think he knows that if it does not work, Sturm would always speak of possible cooperation," said the sports director of Graz. For Röcher, however, only the count of FCI counts.

Laola1: How would balance the first six months at FC Ingolstadt?

Thorsten Röcher: The first semester was a great experience for me. Of course, we expected more. Certainly it was not planned that we were in the last place. I hope our situation will improve.

Laola1: How was it easier to take the step because you are 20 years old and have not left Austria like 18 or 19, like others?

ROCHER: This played a decisive role. I have experience in Austria. He was prepared then with 27 to go to the foreigner. We wanted to stay ahead of the pack from the beginning, but with my experience, that I was able to pick up in Austria, I'm sure we'll leave there.


"Sturm was the best place for me at that time, and I also participated with Salzburg, but Sturm had the best overall concept."

Thorsten Röcher

Laola1: Already in the summer of 2017 they were not only coveted in Austria. Was not the moment still ripe?

ROCHER: No, I would not say that. I had a good amount of storm at this time. This convinced me more. I'm a player who does everything with the utmost conviction. At that time he was convinced of Sturm.

Laola1: Is it true that Rapid and Salzburg were interested in you?

ROCHER: Yes, that's right. I also said that at that time, when I signed up with Sturm, I also want to go to the foreigner. For me the storm was the best direction. I also met with Salzburg. But Sturm had the best overall concept.

Laola1: Would it be too drastic or could I say that the past autumn of the FCI was near disaster?

ROCHER: If you have the last place with ten points, it is not at all optimal. We have tried again and again to enter all the games with total concentration and passion. Unfortunately, we have had repercussions several times. So this season was not easy for us. Now we're done, in fact, we do not want to talk more about that. Now we try to start well and play a good spring. Then nothing is lost.

Laola1: The team belongs to the most valuable in the second league, but you are at the back. Did you have erroneous expectations during the summer?

ROCHER: The club has joined a good team and has had other expectations. They did not arrive At the computer we have talked this with enough frequency. Now we have to show passion and put it on the pitch. This is the only way out of this.

Laola1: Now there has not only been one but two coaching changes in the fall. How many problems did it generate?

ROCHER: This is very bitter and I have not had any experience. I think sometimes, luck was missing. Then, unfortunately, it is the case that a coach exchanged when he is in the last place. We now have the third coach and we are sure it will work.


"You realize that you have a lot of experience, which radiates a good authority."

Functions about trainer Jens Keller

Laola1: What makes Jens Keller better or different than his predecessors?

ROCHER: You can say you have a lot of experience. It radiates a good authority. In short, we must demonstrate on the ground that we can. I am also very sure that we can do it.

Laola1: Marvin Matip has been deposed with a very deserved player in the squad. Still feeling safe or how did this action be taken to the team?

ROCHER: I'm already sure of the template and I've been very much welcomed. Matip was a great guy, so I wrote to him later, just like Robert Leipertz. Unfortunately, you have decided, but this is only part of the professional business. I am looking forward These are decisions that the club has made and can justify – it is not the work of the players. Our job is to do everything we can to succeed in this field.

Laola1: The new signings (Mavraj / defense, Paulsen / defense, Tschauner / goal, Sahin / right wing) must be something like a spirit of optimism. Share the assessment or simply adjust the principle of hope?

ROCHER: No, we definitely have three great new players. They are very strong in their positions. We were also able to offer very good results in preparation. We are now very hot to start against Fürth in the spring. I'm sure the new players will be useful.

Laola1: Tactically, each time you set up a 4-3-3 system. You are satisfied, is that your versatility?

ROCHER: I think I've played my best games in the leftmost position. I feel more comfortable there. But I can also play in the middle, you can also play on the right.

Laola1: On average, with 12.9 kilometers of course per match, you have the highest score of any player in the league. What does the best value mean for you?

ROCHER: I did not know. I know for sure that I have gone a long way. Most of the time without a ball. (Smiles). Therefore, it was certainly not the work that was going in the fall, which was not so good for us. We are, I think, more and more corridor than the opponent. We just have to put it on the pitch now, maybe take the initiative, score a goal. Then there will be more security in the team again.

Laola1: You are not the only Austrian of the team. Are Konstantin Kerschbaumer and Marco Knaller important caregivers for you?

ROCHER: Yes, definitely With "Kerschi" I do a lot. We always eat again and know each other privately. With "Knaxi" too, often with him, we both live in the same place. Because we have a small carpool.

Laola1: How do you rate the situation of your two colleagues?

ROCHER: "Kerschi" does his job very well, although, as in any other, a little self-confidence. It's not who surrenders, like "Knaxi." I'm sure all three will show us the minutes of use and we can do better than in the fall.

Laola1: What is the situation with Marco Knaller, who played often at the beginning of the season?

ROCHER: It is difficult to have the third coach in one season. After all, everyone brings a different idea. I think he did a pretty good job. He also lost happiness in certain situations. But I'm sure you'll find it too.

Laola1: Which of your former English counterparts does you have more contact with?

ROCHER: I still have my best friend in the storm with Philipp Huspek. Exchange with him almost every other day. We build ourselves.

Laola1: You will probably be informed about the difficult season of the storm. Also there, the coach was fired. How much did you hear about this?

ROCHER: It was a similar situation to ours. I think Sturm has lost the fate of the game in certain stages. Then, unfortunately, it was not possible to prevent Heiko Vogel from leaving. Roman Mählich is fine now. The new Austria League system has probably been a bit more pressure on the part of the club than usual, but I am sure that there will be a storm in the first playoff.

Laola1: Mattersburg is less surprising. Do you think your former other team can also keep the class?

ROCHER: I follow Mattersburg next to the storm too often. The team has stabilized, so they will have nothing to do with the descent.
