In the XXL test against Werder (2: 2), Valmir Sulejmani (25) was allowed to play for the Reds for another 60 minutes. He came for Maxi Beier in the second half and had a huge chance to make it 3-2 in the 102nd minute.
Was that his last appearance in the 96 jersey?
“Sure, if Henne and Lukas had been there, we would have had to reduce the playing time,” says coach Christoph Dabrowski. Only because Hendrik Weydandt (isolated) and Lukas Hinterseer (deficit) were absent, Sulejmani was allowed to play for a full hour again.
At the start of the second division in Rostock (Friday, 6.30 p.m.), Dabrowski will probably remove him from the squad as he did against HSV (1: 0) and Ingolstadt (2: 1).
No more space for Sulejmani.

“The competition is very fierce. That’s why he has to decide for himself which way he wants to go, ”says Dabro. Continue with 96 without a chance or elsewhere with the hope of finally being able to play again. In the first half of the season Sulejmani was only nine times in 18 games in the squad, came on four joker bets with a total of 52 minutes. His contract expires in the summer.
“Valmir is a good boy, I’ve known him for ages. He’s training really well, ”says Dabrowski. Several associations are interested (1860 Munich, Mannheim, Viktoria Berlin). The winter farewell is approaching.
