Daniel Wein finally came back after several months.
And immediately scored for TSV 1860. In the interview, he talks about his injury and the anticipation of the fans.
Munich - It was a tailor-made comeback for Daniel Wein.
After several months of injury due to an Achilles tendonitis with a subsequent broken toe, the 27-year-old from Munich made his first appearance in the third division of the season in Halle last Sunday.
As a substitute for the injured Marcel Bär, it took less than eight minutes for “Vinos” placed shot to make it 1-1.
The interview with the blue bearer of hope.
Daniel Wein, there is no better way to report back, right?
That was of course a great story for me personally.
I don't score that many goals, it's all the better that it worked out in the first game after the long break due to injury.
Of course it would have been even better if we had won.
Did it still feel like the same team?
There was a lot of talk recently about a head problem.
In any case, it still feels like the same team, like a reinforced team.
I don't see a head problem.
We just lack the sense of achievement.
So it can go very quickly in the other direction.
Did you come back mentally unencumbered, or is the impression wrong?
Right after last season it took me a week or two to come to terms with the disappointment.
But now I went in unencumbered, that's right.
I had more to do with myself to get completely fit.
How frustrating was that longest-ever injury break in 1860?
What was really frustrating was the uncertainty.
Nobody could really tell how long it would take.
If you have a torn ligament, you know how long it takes, but the inflammation just wouldn't go away.
What therapies have you tried?
There was a lot there.
Two or three other things with different doctors.
The pain was much worse than the MRI images showed, that was the problem.
When did you feel that things were looking up?
In the course of the treatment it got better and better - with fluctuations, but it was significantly reduced.
When exactly this point in time was, it is difficult to determine.
Now I do special warm-up exercises so I can cope well with them.
You extended your contract to 2023 in March.
After an adductor injury, you were on the home straight from your regular seat.
How's it going now?
Back then, the team did a great job, winning one game after the other.
I already understood that there was no need to make big changes.
Now it starts all over again.
The announcement is: Whoever trains best, plays.
In which position are the best chances of getting stuck again?
My positions are six and central defense, I don't see myself like that on the right, we now have other alternatives.
You don't like the more offensive role of the indoor game?
I also played on the six, but had a few more freedom offensively because Halle was extremely behind with ten.
But of course, I like that when I can go offensively.
In the internal scorer list you are only one hit away from the top.
It's unusual when you're in the front with one goal after eight match days.
But other times will come.
We were the strongest attacking team last season and you don't forget that.
Of the next four league games, three will be played at home - against Zwickau, Viktoria Berlin and Waldhof Mannheim.
When does the knot burst?
Preferably on Saturday!
We had the 3-0 win against Cologne, so I thought we'd have made it.
We need something like that again now.
We're still relatively early in the season.
Actually, it would now be the Wiesn opening home game.
How much do you miss the Oktoberfest?
The Wiesn Games were always a season highlight with their very own, positive atmosphere - of course I miss that. The Wiesn itself, of course, as a Munich resident.
But unfortunately that cannot be changed now.
Let's hope for next year.
Last summer they mourned the departure of their “gangster group”: Herbert Paul, Timo Gebhart and Efkan Bekiroglu.
Has a replacement already been found?
I'm still in contact with all the gangsters, including Noel (Niemann) and Leon (Klassen).
But even now I have my gangsters in the team, I hang out a lot with Semi (Belkahia), Merv (Biankadi) is my roommate on trips away.
How big is the anticipation for 10,000 fans on Saturday?
Huge, we're all looking forward to it!
Now that's another big step back to being sold out.
I hope that we can present the fans with a win and a great game.
