Head coach Florian Kohfeldt welcomes Fin Bartels back to the squad in time to face FC Bayern München after a long stint on the sidelines due to injury problems. The forward’s last appearance came in March 2019 during a 3-1 win at Leverkusen, where he came on for the last 15 minutes.
Florian Kohfeldt’s side need to prove their bouncebackability after the last-minute defeat at home to SC Paderborn as they travel to Munich to face the record Bundesliga champions Bayern on Saturday (15:30 CET). “There are two ways of thinking for us right now: either we just think things will improve at some point, or we actively start to fight against the things going against us. We are annoyed...
Despite a poor record in recent history, head coach Florian Kohfeldt is optimistic for the upcoming game against FC Bayern. The 37-year-old wants to focus on the game ahead and isn’t thinking too much about the home game against Mainz during the week. “I’ll worry about that at 17:30 CET on Saturday,” Kohfeldt said at the pre-match press conference on Thursday.

Head coach Florian Kohfeldt could have to go without Leonardo Bittencourt for this weekend’s match. Werder’s midfield maestro has been suffering with illness since the start of the week and might not be able to face FC Bayern München on Saturday. “We will make a decision about whether he can play or not in the near future,” said Florian Kohfeldt at today’s press conference.
Niklas Moisander’s long wait is over. On Sunday against Paderborn, the Werder captain finally made his comeback – in a game he would have imagined going very differently. Given the current difficulties on the pitch, Moisander’s return is important for the team. In an interview with WERDER.DE, the defender spoke about the remaining games until Christmas, self confidence and sleepless nights.
