“We are prepared for a tough challenge, one that we want to successfully take on,” Ole Werner said during the press conference ahead of Saturday’s match against Fortuna Düsseldorf. The head coach also spoke about the personnel available, the intensity in training and the long and short-term goals.

Ole Werner on...

…the squad for Düsseldorf: “With the exception of Abed Nankishi, we have a full squad available to face Düsseldorf. The players that were in self-isolation last week are also available for selection. Because their symptoms were mild, their fitness levels haven’t dropped too much. They are options to start.”

…Fortuna Düsseldorf: “Düsseldorf have a lot of individual quality. Their shape is very compact and they are well organised when defending against the ball. In attack, they are especially dangerous down the wings.”

…the promotion race: “It will be wide open for a while still. We’ve spoken to our team council about the fact that, by mid-April when things really start heating up, we want to be in a position to make things happen. Outside of that, we want to continue taking it step by step, because the last six months have shown that you always need to be ready to react to new situations. Our main task right now is to focus on being successful against Düsseldorf.”

…the intensity in training: “We saw a good mix of excitement and focus in training this week. Mistakes were addressed immediately by the players themselves. You can feel that the team want to play successful football.”
