SV Werder Bremen has achieved its goal for the season and made it clear that it will be promoted again immediately. 90min looks how the Werder stars did in the second division season.
Let’s continue with the midfield:
Is he the surprise of the season? From the fifth game day, the six appeared almost out of nowhere. Gruev is strong in duels, secure on the ball and has an eye for his teammates. Meanwhile, the Bulgarian is also a candidate for the senior national team.
He’s a late starter, he’s a fan favorite and above all he’s one thing: a doer. Big, can also be used in central defence, always plays well, always clears away and actually never makes mistakes. His unconventional way of playing certainly helps him.
The versatile midfielder came to the Weser in the summer for a mere 200,000 euros and was a dream player from ex-coach Markus Anfang. Rapp was used very regularly both under him and under Ole Werner. Most of the time he did his job reliably. The money has long paid for itself.
Jean Manuel Mbom
At the beginning of the season, the 22-year-old Mbom was used mainly on the right side of defense – with big problems. Especially the game against Paderborn (1: 4), when he was played dizzy, is what the fans have in mind. Under Ole Werner he was mainly just a joker, but when he came in he was allowed to play in his learned position in midfield.
A medial ligament injury threw him back early in the season, but he then worked his way back into the team and acted as a driving force on the pitch. However, fans expected better performances from a player as experienced as Bittencourt. He was average and had few highlights.
Regular players, top performers and a two-digit number of scorer points. The Austrian U21 international has finally arrived in Bremen. Small, nimble, agile: Werder fans love his hooks on the pitch.
The 24-year-old was supposed to leave the club in the summer. But good preparation and good performances in the friendlies flushed him back into the team. And Schmidt did a good job in the 2nd Bundesliga, especially in the first half of the season. He was able to participate in goals several times. He was also used regularly in the second half of the season and impressed with a good overview.
A wild card with a few bets, a few good sprints and even a goal involvement. No more and no less.
He is Werder’s hope for youngsters and has hinted at that here and there this season. In the first half of the season, the 20-year-old had several starting eleven appearances, in the second half of the season he acted as a joker.
Made a few inconspicuous short appearances at the beginning of the season, then was injured for a long time.
