While the long -term failures Daniel Didavi, Mo Sankoh and Nikolas Nartey increase their workload in the daily training sessions, one of the most permanent Stuttgart team was missing in today’s training: Konstantinos Mavropanos had today’s unity departed due to muscular problems. However, the central defender’s commitment next Sunday in the Munich Allianz Arena should not be at risk.
The Greek international had recently shown normal form in the two disappointing games at Hertha BSC (0: 2) and against VfL Wolfsburg (1-1) as one of the few in the Swabian squad. Since Pascal Stenzel, who misses the entire rest of the season due to an abdominal muscle injury, is already failing, one would hit VfB twice from Mavropanos. However, the fact that the game against the record champions will only take place on Sunday could benefit the Swabian when trying to get the defenseman fit in time.
a few more minutes for Sankoh and NARTEY?
Meanwhile, Didavi, Sankoh and NARTEY make further progress in their rehabilitation. The 32-year-old veteran has been fighting for the connection since December after he was only because of a cold, then because of a Corona quartan, because of knee problems, a corona infection and finally because of Achilles tendon complaints.
Sankoh missed almost the entire season, who had suffered a serious knee injury at the start of the season against SpVgg Greuther Fürth (5: 1). Like NARTEY, who also had to undergo knee surgery at the end of January, he is on the way back. However, it is still open whether it is still enough for a few minutes of use in the remaining games.
