That’s why Brandt and Can immediately played for BVB again
Much can be read in these days of travel stress and erroneous reasons why it was absolutely necessary for the DFB team to complete the short journey from Stuttgart to Basel by plane. Meanwhile, Julian Brandt and Emre Can from Borussia Dortmund have proven that recovery is a far-reaching concept.
The two BVB professionals were – somewhat surprisingly – already on the pitch in Germany at the home Brackeler Feld for the black and yellow players less than 18 hours after the 1-1 draw against Switzerland, to which they both contributed with different seasons.
Brandt had 45 minutes on his feet at the time, Can still had twelve. Nevertheless, BVB coach Lucien Favre called them into the starting eleven against Sparta Rotterdam (2-1).
Sebastian Kehl has now justified this unusual measure. “Both of them still had contact with the coach last night after the match,” said the licensed player boss about the match in which Can played through and Brandt was replaced by Immanuel Pherai in the 64th minute, adding: “Both of them did quite well. We are still in the process of preparing, and that is where it fits so well today.”
Can and Brandt apparently happy about minutes of use at BVB
Sounds a bit like Can and Brandt weren’t necessarily satisfied with their minutes in the DFB Dress and were therefore impressed by the chance of playing in the club strikot. Successfully.
