Werder’s last hope is called Thomas Schaaf (60). The legend returns to the Bremen coaching bench after 2934 (!) Days on Saturday and is supposed to save the club from relegation against Gladbach.
The respect for the double coach (so far the last game as Werder coach on May 11, 2013 against Frankfurt) is great among the colleagues.
Comeback after 2934 days – Rose and Funkel bow to Schaaf
Before the direct duel, Gladbach coach Marco Rose (44) bowed: “I appreciate him very much, I met him briefly at a Europa League game in Salzburg. He’s a great coach, achieved a lot and shaped an era in Bremen. Even then he had an innovative game idea. “

Cologne coach Friedhelm Funkel (67) also appreciates Schaaf: “We have met again and again over the decades. He is a very pleasant, humble, down-to-earth person. We have a very, very good relationship. “
Cologne (17th) have to win at home against Schalke and hope that Werder (16th) won’t beat Gladbach. That’s why Funkel is honest: “I would have to lie if I wished him every success. Conversely, he won’t do that either. “
