Seven new players on board: Bayer 04 Women start pre-season

On the back of a club record season, the Bayer 04 women started the pre-season ahead of the 2021/22 campaign full of confidence on Wednesday evening. Seven new signings were at the opening session for last season's fifth-placed team in the FLYERALARM Women's Bundesliga.

Before the first training session at the Kurtekotten Performance Centre, head coach Achim Feifel gathered his players together for an in-depth meeting before stepping onto the pitch at 18.30 CEST. The group included goalkeeper Friederike Abt, Julia Pollak, Caroline Siems, Dina Blagojevic, Clara Fröhlich, Irina Pando and Amira Arfaoui. They all signed for Bayer 04 in the summer.


no Gräwe and four sidelined

Lisanne Gräwe, ,who joined Bayer 04 from DFB Cup winners VfL Wolfsburg, missed the opening session. The 18-year-old is currently doing her basic training with the Bundeswehr and will join pre-season training in the next few weeks. Also missing were Nina Brüggemann, Jessica Wich, Melissa Friedrich and Ann-Kathrin Vinken. They are all currently in rehab and were only able to watch their teammates on Wednesday evening.

The programme on day one of the five-week pre-season consisted of drills with the ball primarily in enclosed space and finished with shots.
