Volkswagen-Talk mit Clemens Fritz I SVW - WOB 3:2

A turbulent week lies behind Werder. The 0: 3 check in Darmstadt followed the short-term suspension of Niclas Füllkrug after verbal attacks against Clemens Fritz. We certainly have one or two subjects had looked back early on the last day at the Weser. That s now gone, fortunately in a good direction, the coach said facing Füllkrug which is back in training. The fact that he is available to us, I m happy about it, beginning makes no secret of the fact that he continues to build firmly on his strikers.

I have with Niclas no problem at all.

Especially since the 28-year-old was a player who can help us decide games for us. And differences have start with Füllkrug anyway not emphasized as the coach: I need because clear up anything I have with Niclas no problem Niclas stood at ten competitive games available has made ten games and five times he was in the starting…. Füllkrug ve even after the verbal attacks against Clemens Fritz, head of professional football, exactly the same value as any other player in this team.

He can already on Sunday (13:30 LIVE! At week lies) ask again at a guest performance in Sandhausen test. For since the SVW will check off the second theme. The inexplicable appearance in Darmstadt. Beginning rankled it, that we have not managed to nachzulegen accordingly after the really good match against Heidenheim in Darmstadt . The 3: 0 against the FCH followed known after the international break the 0: 3 at the lilies. That s too bad, I do believe that we have the necessary quality and skill. But it did not succeed in Darmstadt to implement it.

Werder and unpleasant transition to the Hardtwald

According to the background noise during the week the whole focus is now on the Werder match on Hardtwald. It is very unpleasant to play there football. Sandhausen keeps for years in the second league and repeatedly shows what is important, warns the beginning. His team is required, otherwise the next turbulent week stands on the Weser on the program.
