Despite the great pressure before the promotion final with Werder Bremen against Jahn Regensburg, Ole Werner remains cool.
For SV Werder Bremen it's about a direct return to the Bundesliga in the promotion final against Jahn Regensburg - but coach Ole Werner stays totally cool despite the pressure!
The preliminary report of the DeichStube.
Bremen – Nervousness, to start this text directly with the state of mind that is the prevailing state of mind among many fans of
SV Werder Bremen
, is defined by two main things according to common dictionaries.
1.) Removal from stillness and 2.) Loss of serenity.
If these phenomena occur visibly, one generally comes across as nervous to others.
On the other hand, if they don't, you look like
Deeply relaxed, at peace or North German sober - there are many attributes that could be used to describe the appearance of the Werder coach during the press conference before the all-important home game against
SSV Jahn Regensburg

They would all be suitable.
And yet the word "ice cold" probably describes it best, because something else had mixed into Werner's almost colorless objectivity on Friday afternoon: a large dose of cool determination.
Werder Bremen promotion final against Jahn Regensburg: But coach Ole Werner is ice cold
"You can't play 0-0 for 90 minutes, because in football individual situations can always decide a game," said Werner, whose Bremen team on the last day that would be enough - a 0-0, a point - to win to make
promotion to the Bundesliga
But because it would be quite risky to rely on that and because Werder has very different demands on themselves anyway, the coach's route was: "We want to win our last home game!" Period.
From the pure paper form, that should be possible for
in the duel against table 13th,
, for whom sport is no longer important and who has been waiting for a win for six games now.
However, something else will be important on Sunday: the head.
After all, Bremen can not only win a lot, there is also a lot at stake for them.
"Of course we are aware of the importance of the game," said
, who tried to achieve a mixture of "concentration and anticipation" within his team during the week.
Take things seriously anyway.
On the other hand, just don't tense up.
It is essential to stay focused, but also to have fun with what you are doing.
According to Werner ,
settled somewhere in between .
Everything that could have caused a distraction was systematically excluded by the club.
No training in front of fans until the game.
No media appointments for the pros.
The team's traditional bus arrival before important home games, which is always celebrated by numerous fans, is also canceled on Sunday.
Werder Bremen's promotion final against Jahn Regensburg - Ole Werner: "Hide everything else"
"It's about concentrating on the things that we can influence and ignoring everything else," explained Werner, who for this reason also refrained from special features in the preparation with
SV Werder Bremen
: "It's more about that To have certain processes and a way of dealing with each other for over a year that gives you security when special moments arise.
And we're going to fall back on that now." Sudden innovations, which
should take into account the special importance of the game against
, can also have a negative effect in Werner's eyes: "Perhaps the question then arises: Why don't we continue to do what put us in this good position?”
This good position - it ensures that
will be on a direct promotion place in the Blitz table on Sunday until the team falls behind.
As I said: one point is enough.
The last day of the game can still take on dramatic traits, for example if the rivals from Hamburg (in Rostock) or Darmstadt (against Paderborn) take the lead and thus increase the pressure on Werder.
to Werner 's
plan, that shouldn't play a role in the Weser Stadium.
Results from the other places will not be displayed on the video screens this time.
If everything goes well for Werder, they are not relevant anyway because the team does its job, scores and makes promotion clear.
, the thesis at the end, will in this case still 1.) move away from the state of rest and 2.) lose composure.
It can also happen when you are in a state of euphoria.
