‘It must have blown a fuse’ – Rose apologizes for Thuram slamming against opponent in Gladbach ‘s loss to Hoffenheim

The French striker – the son of 1998 World Cup winner Lilian Thuram – was shown a red card for slaughter by Stefan Posch

Borussia Monchengladbach coach Marco Rose has apologized on behalf of the club after Marcus Thuram was sent off for spying against Stefan Posch Hoffenheim.

Thuram was shown a straight red card with 11 minutes left as Hoffenheim came from a down goal to a 2-1 win at Gladbach in the Bundesliga on Saturday.

The red card came after an intervention with VAR, as the original actions were not seen by the officers on the park.

Thuram’s red card came four minutes after Andrej Kramaric scored the scores for Hoffenheim, who went on to claim the win through Ryan Sessegnon, who is on loan at the club from Tottenham.

The French international – the son of Lilian Thuram, who won the 1998 World Cup – was in good control before the game, as this was his first red card for the club.

Rose defied the media after the game and issued an apology, saying the only explanation was that Thuram had “not been blowing a fuse.”

Speaking after the game, Rose said: “On behalf of the club and personally as head coach, I would like to apologize for the red card event in which Marcus Thuram was involved.

“He’s completely out of line and has no place on the football pitch.

“Marcus is a good man, he shows up automatically and he was well raised. He must have blown a fuse in that moment – that’s the only explanation for his behavior. I’m sorry for that. He has served his team.

“We acknowledge the avoidable objectives at the moment. It doesn’t feel good to go with a loss. ”

Rose Hoffenheim producer Sebastian Hoeness said: “I apologize to Marco Rose for what Marcus Thuram did for the club – good for him to say it in public.”

Thuram followed the direction of his manager and issued a statement on it Twitter apologizing for what he did, saying he was out of character and unconscious.

“Today something happened that is not my character and that doesn’t have to happen again,” he said. I treated an opponent in a wrong way and something happened unknowingly and not intentionally.

“I am sorry for everyone, Stefan Posch, my opponents, my teammates, my family and everyone who saw my response.

“Of course, I accept all the consequences of my move.”

The loss continued with a poor run of form for Gladbach. It was their sixth game on the spin without a win, and they will be hoping to boost pre-Christmas confidence when they take on Elversberg in the German Cup on Tuesday.

Gladbach are still in the Champions League and will take on Manchester City in the round of 16 when the tournament starts in February.
