Tuesday Training Report

Cordoba and Müller sidelined

The FC players trained as usual on Tuesday morning, but four players were sidelined due to injury.

"It is what it is," said Peter Stöger on Tuesday regarding Monday night's friendly match against TSV Steinbach. "There were some unfortunate clashes that we could have avoided had we played a bit easier. The case now is that we have three or four players with some minor knocks."

Yuya Osako and Thomas Kessler now have some additional company as Jhon Cordoba and Sven Müller are the latest players to be sit out the training sessions. Cordoba took a knock to his hip during the friendly match against Steinbach. Meanwhile, Sven Müller picked up his injury during a match with the FC U21 team. He is not expected to return this week.

The rest of the FC players took part in a light training session on Tuesday. Despite the rain, spirits seemed to be high with the DFB-Pokal fixture against Leher TS just four days away. Despite Leher playing in a lower division, Peter Stöger is approaching the match with caution. "It is a cup fixture. We are not going there to play pretty. We are going there to advance," said the FC head coach.

The players will train in a public training session on Wednesday at 10am.
