The Foals started their preparations for the upcoming clash with VfB Stuttgart on Saturday (18:30 CEST) with an afternoon training session. Four players had to sit out today’s programme.
Coach Dieter Hecking left out four players at the start of the training week. Training sessions on Wednesday and Friday will be closed sessions. Today (15:30 CEST) and on Thursday (10:00 CEST), however, the fans are able to watch the Foals in training.
Not all players were involved in today’s training for the onlookers to see. Tony Jantschke, Raffael and Denis Zakaria were out with injuries and instead completed individual sessions or sat out all together. Nico Elvedi is out with the same injury as before, a contusion on his calf.
Lars Stindl (fractured tibia), Michael Lang (muscle problems in hip area), Andreas Poulsen (ankle injury) and Mamadou Doucouré (torn muscle fibre) are all still out.
