SV Werder Bremen will play away against FC Schalke 04 on the second Bundesliga matchday - and it is already about reparations.
The preliminary report of the DeichStube *.
Bremen - not like this again!
After the false start into the new Bundesliga season, Werder coach
a significant increase in performance from his team in the game at Schalke 04 on Saturday.
What else after the completely unsuccessful start of
SV Werder Bremen
against Hertha BSC?
“We have to find our way back into this all-or-nothing mode, otherwise we won't win a Bundesliga game,” said the 37-year-old at the press conference before the second match day - and as a listener you felt like you were transported back in some moments of the past Season when similar changes were preached.
But of course: If the team is already playing the way they used to, the coach will talk the way they did before.
But something was different: the protective wall that Kohfeldt used to draw around his players is gone.
They brought about the 1: 4 against Hertha because they had not implemented anything the coach wanted to see.
“That was bad, I was angry,” said Kohfeldt - and he didn't just say it once.
Sour, sour, sour - again and again.
It is therefore safe to assume that the processing of the first game was not a joy for the
SV Werder Bremen
And it is clear that there should not be a repeat against
Kohfeldt: “I can understand anyone who said after the Hertha game: 'Wow, that was boring.'
But I don't want to let boring football play. "

The team did it anyway - and neither Kohfeldt nor sports director Frank Baumann spared them in retrospect.
“It wasn't brave, it wasn't aggressive, it wasn't passionate.
We played too much backwards, but precisely this security thought shouldn't be, ”said Kohfeldt.
"One did this and the other did that," criticized Baumann.
The situation after the first matchday is very similar to that after the 26th round of the previous season.
It was the restart after the Corona break, and
picked up the same swat against Bayer Leverkusen as they did against Hertha.
It was 1: 4 in both cases.
Kohfeldt was always angry, angry, angry.
But remember: After the Leverkusen lesson, the Bremen team recovered and ended up in ninth place in the post-Corona table.
Hertha was "like before Corona - and I don't want to go back there," growled Kohfeldt before the game against

Willingness and ability - it's a seemingly eternal topic at Werder.

extremely nervous again, and quite a few trumpeted in the Internet forums the demand for a replacement of the coach.
But unlike at Schalke, where coach David Wagner is already facing a game of fate, there won't be a coaching discussion "with us," says sports director Frank Baumann.
However, it must be said that those who demand Kohfeldt's dismissal also want to see Baumann go.
considers this to be “early fatalism” and “not right”.
But Kohfeldt also knows that none other than the team - whose leading mind he is - sets the trends themselves.
With achievements, with results.
Both have to be right against

As always, he keeps a secret
which staff the

will select for the task against the Schalke team, who were beaten 8-0 by Bayern.
As always after heavy defeats, he suggests personnel changes - which in the past sometimes came and sometimes didn't.
"We will see on Saturday what conclusions we have drawn," said Kohfeldt.
But one thing is clear: Milot Rashica is missing Werder further injured.
