Training is back underway ahead of SV Werder’s trip to Erzgebirge Aue on Sunday afternoon (13:30 CEST). As the work started, two key players returned to the pitch and trained fully: captain Ömer Toprak and Christian Groß. The pair took part in partial team training on Saturday, before continuing their individual work, whilst Milos Veljkovic has returned to individual training following his calf strain and should step up to full training on Wednesday. Head coach Ole Werner made clear that the trio will all be options for the squad on Sunday.

“All three will get back to it over the course of this week. I’m hoping and planning for them to be available to us in Aue. We’ll have to see how they come through this week and react to the workload; - then, we’ll discuss things with the players themselves and decide if they can start or if we can bring them on,” explained Ole Werner in a chat to the media on Tuesday. “The fact is, we’re in the final phase of the season and there’s not much time to wait for things. Even with the issues they have, the players have to have the feeling that they can deal with the game and help the team. I can’t give a definite answer as to whether they feel ready, but all three are in my plans for Aue.”
