With several players returning from international duty, the Fohlenelf today continued their preparations for Saturday’s home game against Eintracht Frankfurt (15:30 CEST).
The training ground at BORUSSIA-PARK is slowing refilling. Alongside Jonas Hofmann, who sat out of training yesterday with a bruised foot, Lars Stindl, Matthias Ginter, Yann Sommer, Nico Elvedi, Denis Zakaria, Thorgan Hazard and Jannik Vestergaard all returned from their international teams' camps today.
Vincenzo Grifo (knee injury), Ibrahima Traoré (muscle tear), Tobias Strobl (ligament injury) and Mamadou Doucouré were again all missing, with the latter now increasing the workload of his recovery exercises. Josip Drmic continued to train individually with recovery coach Andreas Bluhm.
Thursday’s training session will take place behind closed doors, as Fabian Johnson, László Bénes and Michaël Cuisance will all be back in team training after featuring for their national sides yesterday. The final training session before Saturday’s game will be on Friday at 15:30 CEST.
