Focus on Hertha
Having earned a convincing 3-0 home-victory over FC Ingolstadt last Saturday afternoon, on Tuesday, the Wolves went about their first training session of the new week. To begin the preparations for the up-coming clash with Hertha BSC (Saturday, April 22nd – 15:30 CET), VfL head-coach Andries Jonker had a double-shift on the schedule for his men. In the morning and again in the afternoon, the Green-White pack were in action on the training pitch to the east of the Volkswagen Arena.
Self-confidence for the trip to Hertha
The group in action for the morning session included Yannick Gerhardt, who was still very much enjoying the three points claimed at the weekend against FCI. "For the whole team, the fans and also for me personally, it was a very important win. After that we could all enjoy some relaxed Easter celebrations with our families," explained Gerhardt, who weighed in with two assists and thus had a vital role to play in Saturday’s victory. The relaxation over the remainder of the weekend then came to an end on Tuesday morning, as the team turned their focus to this coming weekend’s challenge in the capital. On the back of a convincing 3-0 victory, the Wolves will be looking to take further points back from Berlin. "It was exactly the result we had been hoping for. However, we won’t be resting on that and are very concentrated going into the week’s work," insisted a determined Robin Knoche.
Eyeing a comeback
Aside from the win at the weekend, there was some further positive news for the Green-Whites on the training grounds on Tuesday. Away from the work-out with the ball, a small group of recent absentees were also in action on the pitch. Recently injured Wolves Paul-Georges Ntep, Ricardo Rodriguez, Victor Osimhen and Ismail Azzaoui trained together and are all well on their way back to full team training. In addition, Jannes Horn worked individually and did some light jogging. VfL team captain Diego Benaglio was also back between the posts for some goalkeeper training in the morning, whilst Daniel Didavi was forced to rest up with a thigh problem.
