Bremen – Bad news for SV Werder Bremen and Davie Selke (25): The striker is injured for the Bundesliga game against RB Leipzig (Saturday, 15.30).
“Davie won’t play tomorrow, he has problems with his thigh,” said Florian Kohfeldt on Friday at the video press conference before the away game RB Leipzig above Davie Selke. The head coach of the SV Werder Bremen further: “It actually withstands the general loads, but it always has a problem with the passing movement. We can’t define that yet and we have yet to figure out what exactly it is. We are in the process of doing further investigations, but the fact is that unfortunately he will not be able to play tomorrow. “
Hurt again! Werder Bremen will have to do without Davie Selke against RB Leipzig
The SV Werder Bremen has to do without three important strikers in Leipzig. Next Davie Selke, who “would very likely have started against Leipzig” (Kohfeldt), are also missing Milot Rashica (Tendon injury in the thigh) and Niclas filling jug (Calf injury). “Abundance will be back on the pitch today, but not with the team. I can’t say when he’ll be back, ”said Kohfeldt. All other players are ready for action: “Milos Veljkovic (adductor complaints, d. Ed.) Will be there, Maxi Eggestein will definitely be there, so it was more about a little rest.” Strikers are not available. But there is breadth in the squad and we will have an idea against Leipzig. “(Tst)

New worries for Werder Bremen: Davie Selke apparently already slowed down again
Even if the picture got hooked here and there and the sound arrived with a slight offset – the typical pitfalls of the video conference – Davie Selke’s good mood was clearly noticeable on Thursday afternoon. During an online media round, the 25-year-old laughed a lot, was open-minded and quick-witted. “I feel good,” said the striker, who scored against VfB Stuttgart on Sunday and now wants to become a regular and top performer in the third attempt since moving from Hertha BSC to Werder Bremen last winter.
Selke’s sentence “I’m ready for the starting line-up”, pronounced with a view to the upcoming game at RB Leipzig (Saturday, 3:30 p.m., DeichStube-Liveticker), emphasized this emphatically. Then came the afternoon training – and suddenly this third attempt had become a very shaky one. After about half an hour I had to Davie Selke cancel the non-public unit prematurely. Werder Bremen later gave thigh problems as the reason for this and announced that it will not be decided until Friday whether Selke will be able to play at his ex-club Leipzig the next day. Should the striker fail again, it would be enormously bitter for him – after all, he had only just recovered from what he calls a “very complex injury”.
Davie Selke wanted to start the preparation with Werder Bremen as best as possible
Was at the end of October Davie Selke with groin problems, that was the official justification of the club at the time, was canceled and had missed four match days. In the media round on Thursday, he said: “The hip, the groin and the thigh were also affected a little. Basically the entire left area. ”He still had to put in a lot of extra effort so that he could play football without complaints. Most recently, the work had paid off in the form of short deployments against Wolfsburg and Stuttgart. On Thursday, it was no longer possible to find out whether Selke’s recent injury to the thigh is related to the old injury.
One thing is certain: After a disappointing second half of the previous season, in which Selke had no goal in the Bundesliga and only scored once in the DFB Cup, the striker had big plans for the current series. In the summer he worked with a personal trainer on the Greek island of Rhodes in order to be as prepared as possible for the actual preparation Werder Bremen to start. A plan that initially worked: Selke scored goals in the test matches, was in the starting line-up against his ex-club Hertha on matchday one, scored the only goal in Bremen at 1: 4 – and still didn’t start playing after that. To this day he cannot understand that. “If you have to go out as a striker even though you’ve scored a goal, you can’t quite understand it,” said Selke on Thursday.
Werder Bremen: Davie Selke’s storm competitor Niclas Füllkrug is still injured
On the second matchday at Schalke, he had to watch how storm competitor Niclas Füllkrug scored three goals. “If the striker who comes in for you delivers such a gala, there is not much to discuss afterwards,” says Selke. From then on, the filling jug was set, he was only back-up and a little later injured, as was the filling jug. “That was annoying. I would definitely have got my playing time, “said Davie Selke looking back – without being able to know that this sentence may be more topical than ever. Finally, Füllkrug with calf problems still fails, and Selke had just submitted a nice application for a job in Leipzig to the trainer against Stuttgart (Kohfeldt: “Gladly more of it!”), Before the thigh complaints appeared on Thursday afternoon. Selke had previously described himself as “fully on target” in terms of sport.
Werder Bremen will have to pay ten million euros for Davie Selke next summer
If everything goes well for attackers, breaking off the unit was just a precautionary measure, then not much would have happened and after the messed up second half of the season and losing his regular place at the beginning of the season, he could make his third attempt since switching from Hertha to Werder Bremen continue. Of course, the striker also knows that there are great expectations attached to him, which is due on the one hand to his prominent name, but also to the following figure: ten million euros. A transfer in this already for Bremen conditions and even more astronomical during a pandemic, Werder, if the club does not relegate, have to transfer the player to the Berliners in the coming summer. Of course, many Selke gates would not lower the price fixed in the loan agreement as a purchase obligation. But they could make him more bearable for the club. And Leipzig, where Selke was under contract from 2015 to 2017, would actually be a perfect place to continue scoring goals. Since 2016 Davie Selke scored six goals in twelve games against his ex-clubs in the Bundesliga … (dco)
