Werder Bremen: Why Romano Schmid was not in the squad against CZ Jena!

Jena – When you had to look at the match report sheet an hour before the kick-off of Werder Bremen’s DFB Cup game at FC Carl Zeiss Jena, you couldn’t find your name among the guests: Romano Schmid.

The season began for the 20-year-old, who had high hopes after a successful loan from Wolfsberger AC Werder Bremen had returned with a personal disappointment: Romano Schmid wasn’t even in the squad. Quite a few Werder fans should have asked themselves the question at this moment: What is the reason for that Non-consideration of the Austrian? Is it an injury?

“No. Romano was with the national team for a long time and only practiced a little with the team in Bremen, ”explained coach Florian Kohfeldt following the 2-0 victory of SV Werder Bremen at the northeast regional division. Schmid, like his team-mate Marco Friedl, who lost out to captain Niklas Moisander in the center-back position, was on the road with Austria’s U21 team in the week before the start of the competitive game, had against England (1: 2) and Albania (1: 5) but only played 69 minutes.

His absence in the Bremen squad was neither due to a lesion nor a lack of freshness. Rather, it was the missed units that were decisive Werder Bremen. “This time it was a competitive decision – without that Romano Schmid would have done something wrong, ”said Kohfeldt. “In the end, the decision was made between him and Nick Woltemade, and that’s where Nick prevailed. “

Also Milos Veljkovic was not part of the 20-man squad in Jena SV Werder Bremen. The central defender, who had been out for a longer time in preparation because of a torn muscle fiber from the relegation second leg against Heidenheim and recently had to fight with a hardened thigh on top of that, still has Training deficit. Kohfeldt: “With Ömer, Grosso, Niklas and Marco we had four fit central defenders. The decision was that Milos would build up this weekend. But he is a clear candidate for the game against Hertha. It wasn’t a sporting decision that he didn’t make it into the squad. ”Incidentally, Werder can also look forward to the return of 8,500 fans to the Weserstadion against Hertha. (mwi)
