Kohfeldt sets out his Bremen philosophy

SV Werder Bremen caretaker coach Florian Kohfeldt says he wants his team to create more chances in attack, ahead of Friday’s Bundesliga clash with Eintracht Frankfurt.

Kohfeldt recently took over on an interim basis after previous manager Alexander Nouri was sacked following a run of 13 matches without a win stretching back to the previous season.

As such, the 35-year-old, who was in charge of Werder Bremen II prior to his appointment, believes his team need to start creating chances and scoring goals if they are to get out of the relegation zone. The River Islanders are currently in 17th position with just Cologne behind them in last position.

He told Kicker, “Above all, we’re going to talk about how to create options in the opening game. Frankfurt is a very aggressive team that will not give us much time, so we have to find solutions. One wants to work out how we get behind the defence, so as not to play too wide.

“Each player in the squad has the chance to prove themselves to play the game, and the tasks will change slightly compared to the last games, and maybe the one or the other will match other players better.”
