Conference break and almost all are there. A completely new sense of coach Sebastian Hoeneß, who usually has to give up to 15 and more international, but can use this particular turnout period, but to read the last suffering fine tuning, especially in play against the ball. However, the training week on the court starts only on Wednesday, on Tuesday individual loading and lactate tests were on the program.
Only two national players are currently traveling. On the one hand, Diadie Samassekou with Mali in the second round of the Africa Cup, where on Wednesday evening (8 pm), the duel is waiting with Equatorialguinea. Whether with the Hoffenheim, remains to be seen, most recently the six of his country lacked because of a blessur on the ankle joint. However, the injury should not be serious and Samassekou after Conference break information has recapted training again. A premature return to the TSG was therefore not the debate.
Richards struggles with the US about the World Cup participation
Chris Richards is also in use for his country, the defender struggles with the US about the World Cup participation. On Thursday is a home game against El Salvador on the program, three days later it comes in Edmonton to the summit, when leaders canada the only one point behind the second USA lurking only. Night a further counter back are also Mexico and Panama still promising in the race.
Hoeneß characterizes CHE
On the other hand, Hoffenheim’s new Americans remained in the Kraichgau. The last obligated defender of Justin Che was also in the extended US bid, but now can now focus on his acclimatization in the new environment. After all, the only 18-year-old interior or right defendant will soon help the TSG in the Bundesliga. “I hope fast,” emphasizes Hoeneß. The physically like footballery already well-developed talent, recently atticed as a rental player of little Bavaria. “He has left a good impression on the Bavarians in the 3rd league,” explains Hoeneß, “he is a very young player, but has held out his head without problems in the 3rd league.” By summer 2023, the TSG CHE initially borrowed from FC Dallas and also secured a purchase option to relatively moderate conditions in the low single-digit millions.
Now in Hoffenheim, you hope that Che can lie down a similarly pleasing development like the attacker Georginio Rücker Georginio Rünter brought a year ago as back then 18-year-old. “Che has a good combination of dynamics and footballing elements”, characterizing him Hoeneß, “he is flexible, can also play right, but also inside he can even play all three positions. So seen he is an exciting player for us who hopefully represents an alternative very quickly. But he is young, comes from America, because we have to see how fast he acclimatized and adapted. “
There comes the league interruption as called. Also to test. On Friday in the friendly match against the second division of Sandhausen, Che is likely to get his game minutes, but the game in Hoffenheim takes place but excluding the public.
