- Now struggles Florian Kohfeldt
Even later in the video press conference there was no euphoric Florian Kohfeldtwho this Sign of life of SV Werder Bremen garnished with a smile on his face in the relegation battle. He would have had every reason to do so, because the 37-year-old had shown it to everyone – especially his Critics. But Kohfeldt did not want to and could not enjoy this moment in front of the public for several reasons.
First of all from “self-protection”, as he said with reference to the corona pandemic: “I would have liked to take one or the other player in my arms after the final whistle, but I am not allowed to do that at the moment. We are still in one Exceptional situation. That’s why I went in, sat in my chair and was happy there. ”But not anymore.
Werder Bremen: It’s not about Frank Baumann and Florian Kohfeldt, but about relegation
Because the coach des wanted personal satisfaction after the criticism in the media – especially from Werder legends like Rune Bratseth and Dieter Burdenski SV Werder Bremen know absolutely nothing. “It’s not about me,” affirmed Florian Kohfeldt and took the one that was also criticized Sports director Frank Baumann immediately on board: “It’s not about Frank either. It’s just that we do everything we can to keep the club in the league. ”
The Bremen 1-4 home bust at the restart of the Bundesliga had, however, fueled doubts that Kohfeldt and his team had the Relegation can still create. “We felt like we were gone in public perception since Monday,” the coach admitted: “But we didn’t want to endure it. The boys showed that we want to stay in the league. “
Werder Bremen: Florian Kohfeldt’s announcement bears fruit
No wonder he had them in his memorable press conference on Friday Gun placed on the chest, almost put the famous last cartridge of a trainer in the magazine to prevent it from going out. If they, the players, didn’t follow him now and give everything, then they would have to get along without him, so the obvious interpretation.
And anyone who knows Kohfeldt knows that he is planning such moments. And who the Bite the player in the Black Forest Stadium saw, he knew immediately: Kohfeldt’s appearance had had an effect. But he didn’t want to claim this episode for himself. “I don’t think that my press conference has anything to do with today’s performance,” said Kohfeldt, adding a smug comment: “We’re not analyzing my press conferences at the players’ meetings. We analyze football. “
Werder Bremen: Emotionality “must be the basis for the next few weeks”
And the trainer was primarily concerned with one thing: “the fight mode“. This time, the players would not only have spoken of it before the game, but would also have followed up. “It wasn’t 99, it was 101 percent emotions. That has to be the basis for the next few weeks, ”Kohfeldt demanded and wished that football would also improve.
The first half hour is a template. Werder withstood the initial pressure of the table seventh without just throwing the balls out as against Leverkusen. Werder Bremen wanted to be active, like in the 19th minute: Marco Friedl won the ball, Davy Klaassen served with a sugar pass Leonardo Bittencourtwho in turn executed ice cold. Afterwards, the guests even determined the game until midfielder Kevin Vogt had to go down due to injury.
Werder Bremen wins game at SC Freiburg via “fight mode”
From this point on, it was above all a lot of struggle with which the Bremen rescued the narrow lead to the finish. And everyone, really everyone participated. Florian Kohfeldt the soul cried out, verbally helping with almost every action. The substitute bench moved to the stands in the corona crisis became the east curve, so loudly the players who were replaced and not substituted, as well as the whole supervisory staff including the doctor, were thrilled. And they would probably have burst into tears if the video assistant had not withdrawn the Freiburg equalizer shortly before the end. This gate would be so characteristic of this Bankruptcy, bad luck and breakdown season been.
“The relief is very great,” Kohfeldt admitted after the final whistle and explained: “It is simply something different if you need the points to survive than if you are in the secure midfield.” just the “first step” to staying in the class the joy was rather sparse. And the next task is also not long in coming. Borussia Mönchengladbach will be coming to the Weserstadion on Tuesday – and against the Champions League contender you need this new kind of fight again Fight mode made by Florian Kohfeldt. (knee)

Dieter Burdenski (honorary captain at Werder Bremen):
“Whether Rune or I say something, it doesn’t matter, they do their thing with Werder anyway. That’s what they get paid for, but in the end they need theirs Hold your head out. You just have to look at the table and the last games, or look up when your last home win was, or see what has changed – then you actually know everything and don’t have to say anything anymore. ”
Jonny Otten (legend of SV Werder Bremen):
“Rune has a feeling like that. I had hoped so much that we would see a new team after the break – and then came the disappointment against Leverkusen. I don’t want to ask that Coach released I am not entitled to this, there are those responsible in our association.

Naldo (ex-star of SV Werder Bremen):
“I was shocked by the performance the eleven had delivered. So I’m really worried. The comments after the game also irritated me. It stays with Nice talk of this poor performance. That doesn’t help. If coach Kohfeldt’s head is challenged, it shows how dramatic the situation is now. I think Kohfeldt is a good coach, but he has to make a difference now, he has to be on the team in this one Relegation battle act and adjust them better mentally. Changing coaches at this time is not easy. Therefore with all reservations: Florian Kohfeldt should stay better. “
Ivan Klasnic (ex-star of SV Werder Bremen):
“The trainer is always pilloried. The players should touch their own noses. The Game against Leverkusen was a shame, a bankruptcy declaration by the professionals. Nothing has changed! Always the same mistakes in defense behavior and especially in standard situations. If a Coach change is appropriate? Hard to say. If Kohfeldt is now on leave, where is the possible alternative? I don’t see a suitable fireman. My appeal to the troops: strap on the biggest tunnels and finally fight them descent. (kni / hgk)
