Wolfsburg's football coach Mark van Bommel has to do without attacking player Luca Waldschmidt in the home game on Saturday (3.30 p.m. / Sky) against SC Freiburg.
"It's not enough for tomorrow," said the Dutchman on Friday about the 25-year-old former Freiburg resident who has muscular problems.
Against the Breisgauer, who has so far been unbeaten in this Bundesliga season, top striker Wout Weghorst continues to fail because of his corona infection.
Wolfsburg - midfielder Yannick Gerhardt, who was missing recently, is back.
After seven competitive games without a win, van Bommel is hoping for an improved defense behavior of his players.
"Something has to change, especially on the defensive," he said.
"We know that and we will do that too." Phases like the current one happen again and again, said van Bommel.
“You have to deal with it well, stick together even more, work even harder and tell each other the truth.
And then we'll come out of there together again. ”Dpa
