Reduced numbers on training ground

A small group of the Werkself squad completed training on Monday afternoon: Only six outfield players and two goalkeepers were on the pitch to follow the instructions of head coach Heiko Herrlich and his assistants.

While the players in the starting eleven for the home game against VfB Stuttgart began the week with a video analysis session followed by work in the gym at the BayArena, the unused players and subs were on the training ground. The fans at the open training session were only able to see Julian Brandt, Stefan Kießling, Dominik Kohr, Benny Henrichs, Vladlen Yurchenko, Marlon Frey plus the two keepers Ramazan Özcan and Niklas Lomb. Heiko Herrlich and Co. went through a number of crossing and shooting drills with their players.

Wendell and Tah making progress

Wendell worked with fitness coach Daniel Jouvin on the training ground in a one-on-one session following his ankle injury. According to the medical section, Jonathan Tah is also making progress. As with Joel Pohjanpalo (rehab training after ankle injury), the 22-year-old central defender, who suffered a muscle injury to his hip in the game against Dortmund, completed an individual session at the Werkstatt facility in the morning.

Bayer 04 supporters have another two chances to watch the Werkself train this week – on Tuesday and Wednesday (both at 10.30 CET).
