Coach Urs Fischer (55) would have liked to give him a break, but Rani Khedira (27) has been in the starting lineup in all six matches so far. Other positions were rotated.
After the departure of Robert Andreich (26) to Leverkusen, Fischer lacked alternatives in the defensive midfield. Help is on its way: Transferring Kevin Mowald, 28, is imminent.
According to BZ information, both clubs have now moved towards each other in poker for the transfer. Werder recently asked for a million, Union just wanted to put a six-figure sum on the table. But agreement is now imminent.
The most obvious comes from Bremen, who are relegated to the Bundesliga, and should give the federation more room to maneuver in the middle.
Grischa Prömel (26 / after hip surgery) is slowly approaching, but – if it fits – she is eleven candidates. But Fischer cannot be sure of Brummel. The test on Wednesday in the fourth division Lichtenberg 47 (5pm, Zoschke Stadium) will provide information on Prömel’s condition.
► Friedel is causing trouble, Mohwald is all about money
► Kevin Mohold of Bremen is a candidate for the Federation
Sebastian Griesbeck (30) remains, but former Heidenheimer is at most the alternative. Mohold’s transfer will not increase his chances.
