“We want to banish memories of last season’s defeat” - Adi Hütter’s press conference
Back on familiar soil following Eintracht’s UEFA Europa League win in Guimarães, Adi Hütter addressed the media ahead of the Eagles’ Bundesliga clash at home to Werder Bremen on Sunday.
Adi Hütter on…
…personnel: “Makoto Hasebe is back in training for the first time today and Dominik Kohr is also available again following his Europa League suspension. Jonny de Guzman isn’t quite at 100 per cent yet. We’re able to name two more players in our squad again, so Lucas Torró is obviously back in contention. I haven’t heard anything concrete regarding David Abraham as we’ve only just landed. I’ll find out more in a moment, then we’ll decide what our options are in the 50 hours before kick-off.”
…opponents Werder Bremen: “In Florian Kohfeldt, they have a good coach who employs an attacking approach. They play tidy, technically demanding football and are particularly dangerous at set-pieces. Milot Rashica made his comeback [from injury against Borussia Dortmund] and always causes problems with his pace. Yesterday’s win has put the wind in our sails. We also want to banish memories of our home defeat [to Werder] last season.”
…Bas Dost (who has scored in all four appearances against Bremen): “Bas is obviously in contention to start. Sometimes there are teams - like Bremen, in his case - that suit players more than others. However, you’ve known me long enough now to know I don’t reveal my starting line-up before any game.”
