SV Werder Bremen will play against Fortuna Düsseldorf on the 2nd matchday in the 2nd league, coach Markus Anfang wants to win his first victory and switches to attack mode.
The preliminary report of the DeichStube *.
Bremen - The return to the Rhineland - for Markus Anfang it's actually quite a story, he also serves it, but only a little. Because the new coach of
SV Werder Bremen
has completely different worries right now, there is little time for nostalgia before the guest

), a club that played for the beginning from 1995 to 1997 and from 2006 to 2008.
The native of Cologne should help SV Werder back on its feet, which is even more difficult than assumed.
After the disappointing 1: 1 against Hannover 96, the beginning made a small change of course.
While he was rather sober and cautious before the start of the second division, the 47-year-old switched to attack mode - certainly not yet in the final stage, but at least in a preliminary stage.
Werder Bremen versus Fortuna Düsseldorf: Markus beginning players should internalize the will to win
“We have to improve, we have to draw more deals, we have to consistently defend until the last minute,” said
with fairly clear words at the matchday press conference. And it continued with this clarity on Thursday afternoon in the 30 minutes in the media room of the Wohninvest Weserstadion. “What you have to clarify from time to time,” said Anfang: “If you say you want to rebuild, it doesn't mean you don't want to win games. I hate not winning games. I want to win every game. I'm going out to win the soccer game! "
But he doesn't feel
at his new club
: “At the end of the day we all want to win - whether they're our fans, whether they're the club's employees or we as a coaching team or the team.
And we have to internalize that. ”However, the last sentence also indicated that the will to win is not yet in everyone.
As well as?
The beginning emphasized once again that the starting position had changed fundamentally after relegation.
In the past, the relegation battle was primarily about not losing and only then somehow winning.
On the other hand, victories are always required of a favorite, and that is always a relegated person, whether he wants it or not.
Werder Bremen: Opponent Fortuna Düsseldorf is one year ahead of Werder after relegation
“It's a process,”
a sentence he had often used. But this time it didn't sound so cloudy, it sounded more confident. This comment from the beginning also fitted: “Even if I said that it is the team that unfortunately was relegated, we mustn't forget: We still have quality in the team. And we believe in quality. We also believe that every player is good enough to play in different positions. It's also one of the most important things to make the players feel like they can. "
This individual strength should be more effective
than against Hanover. That will also be necessary. Fortuna is
almost a year ahead of
, not a pleasant one, of course. Because the desired direct
This time the squad didn't have to be overhauled this time as it was after relegation and now at Werder, but stayed almost completely together.
The beginning therefore expects "certain automatisms" from the opponent.
They are not yet to be expected in their own team.
Of the newcomers, only Lars Lukas Mai will probably play, but Theodor Gebre Selassie, who has returned to the Czech Republic, is sorely missed.
And a Milot Rashica (Norwich City) could certainly use the beginning as a winger in his 4-3-3 system.

But with all these personal problems and this extreme uncertainty as to who could still leave the club, the beginning did not want to deal so much anymore without dropping them completely under the table. The coach again campaigned for understanding and patience. But his maxim was: “As a player and as a coach, I only have to concentrate on the essentials - the next game and the tasks that await me there. I have to tackle them 100 percent. ”Every sense of achievement on the pitch increases self-confidence. Looking back on the Hannover game, Anfang explicitly named Michael Zetterer and Niklas Schmidt, who had emerged stronger from their premieres. Zetterer had played his first competitive Werder game, Schmidt was in the starting line-up for the first time. The positive will be at
again put more in the foreground.
This also applies to the game date. “As a footballer, there is nothing better than having an evening game when the floodlights come on and the stadium is full again. It is only better if it is still raining lightly and the lawn is nice and wet and the ball is really fast. It goes back and forth and you leave the field as the winner after 90 minutes, ”he said, after he had been much more reserved a week before his Weserstadion premiere. But that is certainly not because of the arena, because the return to the old place of work at
is nice, so Anfang: “There are still some employees in the club that I know. But I'm the coach of
going there to win the game. "(Kni)
