SV Werder Bremen will be without Ömer Toprak for the time being. The centre back has suffered a setback in his individual rehabilitation training, as explained by head coach Florian Kohfeldt aheaed of Saturday's home game against Bayer 04 Leverkusen (15:30 CEST). "He will definitely not be able to play at the weekend and it is questionable whether he will even be able to play again this season," said Kohfeldt.

Kohfeldt called the 31-year-old's unavailability a setback: "We had our most stable phase with him, but we shouldn't complain either. We performed well against Leipzig without him. We have to do that again on Saturday."


Marco Friedl and Manuel Mbom's availability against Leverkusen will only be decided at short notice, with the pair set to train individually again on Thursday. "There is hope with each of them that they will manage it," said Kohfeldt at the pre-match press conference.
