Dutch legend Arjen Robben acknowledged that his time in Bavaria is drawing to a close, but the superstar winger had some insight on the talent that will be taking over: Kingsley Coman and Serge Gnabry.
We work and talk together every day, but it’s down to the young players themselves. You give tips when necessary, because you’ve got the experience in that position. But at the end of the day you have to work things out for yourself. You need to gain experience, work hard, never be satisfied and always try to improve and perform for the team. I hope they’ll be successful.
I hope from the bottom of my heart they do, but it’s down to the them. They have a long journey ahead of them, but they have plenty of talent. When you speak about our positions with Serge and King [Coman], they’re two very good players. They want to improve, they want to prove themselves and they work hard. They’ve got great character, too. That pleases me. I hope they develop more in this way and play an important role in the club.
It was a firing range at Sven Ulreich (remember him?) yesterday in training.
Werder Bremen’s Missouri native and USMNT forward Josh Sargent has been called up to the first team for Die Werderaner’s match today (2:30PM EST) against Fortuna Düsseldorf.
This is a HUGE opportunity for Sargent, who is still just 18, but has tremendous talent.
The Bavarian Derby should make for a raucous atmosphere.
