Captain Benjamin Hübner is at the TSG 1899 Hoffenheim before a renewed return. The defensive player had last struggled with a corona infection and returned to training this week, as Chef coach Sebastian Hoeneß announced.
Whether Hübner can run on Saturday (15:30 / SKY) at Hertha BSC, but Hoeneß left open.
The Ermin Bicakcic injured for a long time was also back on the training place. “He made the warmup and fit, that was an emotional moment for him, for me, for the team. It’s not foreseeable how the next steps go. He has got a warm applause,” Hoeneß said.
Bicakcic had moved a cruciate ligament tear in September 2020 and subsequently to fight with some complications and setbacks.
To master the special challenge Hertha with the new coach Felix Magath, the TSG guidance has studied old video material of the coach.
“We looked at the last Bundesliga games of him, scenes from China seen,” said Hoeneß. But you do not know how Magath is the team at his debut.
