Head coach Florian Kohfeldt delivered some very good news and one piece of bad news on Tuesday afternoon. “Everyone, who played against Schalke, is fit,” Kohfeldt in his press conference before the midweek fixture against Eintracht Frankfurt. This also applies to Leonardo Bittencourt and Milot Rashica, both of whom were subbed off in Gelsenkirchen.

However, Werder are still without Nuri Sahin for Wednesday’s rescheduled match against Eintracht (20:30 CEST). The Turkish midfield will not feature for Werder again this season due to injury. “Unfortunately, his hip injury has proven to be worse than first thought.”

But Bremen’s head coach was able to deliver a slightly more positive message regarding Ömer Toprak and Niclas Füllkrug, both of whom will return to team training at the end of the week. “They’ll be candidates to play once the Paderborn game and the three-game week roll around.” However, Kohfeldt confirmed that Füllkrug would not be a candidate to start. But, “he can be of great value for 20 to 30 minutes,” he said on the striker, who has been able to “partially” train with the team behind closed doors.
