The second game saw Werder line up with - aside from Martin Harnik - exclusively young talents. "We can take a few things from this game on an individual basis," explained Kohfeldt, referring to two communication issues that led to goals conceded. "It wasn't all bad. You can't gorget that these boys played against a second division side who are much further along in their pre-season preparations, playing their second match today with their main starting XI. They had a few really good players today," Kohfeldt told WERDER.DE.
The 3-0 defeat to Karlsruher SC has given Kohfeldt "issues he can point at to show what was at times lacking." There were "a few good scenes" going forward. Josh Sargetn and Marin Pudic received explicit praise for their attacking efforts. However, "there were also things that shouldn't be happening."
