Naldo: "I would really like to thank my wife, my friends and all those who supported me from the bottom of my heart. It was a long time but it's finally over. I never thought about my knee for a second. I have no problems anymore and it was something very special to wear the Werder jersey today. Friendly games are of course very different to the Bundesliga, but I am coming along with every training session."
Schaaf: "When someone has been out of action for so long then it is a very special moment when he returns. For Naldo today it was all about getting involved again and finding his feet. He did the job well but it was clear to see that he is still lacking a little and that he is not yet completely free in his movements. At the moment I can't say when he will be back in action in the Bundesliga. We need to continue slowly building Naldo back up."
