SV Werder will have to do without centre-back Miloš Veljković in the upcoming Bundesliga finale away in Mainz, head coach Florian Kohfeldt announced on Thursday afternoon. “Miloš took a knock to the ankle,” said the Werder coach, who will likely to be able to call upon Niklas Moisander, however.

Moisander, who has missed the two most recent matches against Dortmund and Leverkusen with muscle problems, will return to team training on Thursday. “I’m assuming that he will be able to play against Mainz. However, it’s not 100% certain, but it will probably be fine,” Kohfeldt assesses the situation on the Finnish defender.

The Werder coach sees “no risk at all” of Ludwig Augustinsson not being available to play as the Swede’s flu-like virus is completely cured.
