Kempe: Team spirit as in the promotion year
Tobias Kempe, who was involved in the promotion of SV Darmstadt 98 to the Bundesliga in the summer of 2015, sees certain parallels between the team from back then and the Lilien team today. The team is “already different”, as Kempe emphasized on Tuesday. But: “We have the same team spirit in the squad. Everyone sticks together, nobody gets mad if they’re not in the squad.” That distinguishes the team, emphasized the offensive all-rounder. The southern Hesse are currently in first place and could repeat the coup from 2015. “Of course we’re looking at it. But the table isn’t that interesting. There are still a few games that we have in front of our chests,” said Kempe.
