Adam Bodzek (35) has had better Fortuna times. The veteran sat on the bench for the last three league games and was only allowed to play twice for a total of nine minutes. Already at the season opener in Hamburg (2: 1), coach Uwe Rösler (52) left his captain out.
Bodzek’s explanation: “I think the Sandhausen game threw me back. I got a blow on the knee. After that, the guys did really well on the pitch. To be fair, I have to say. “
He can understand the coach’s decision. The midfielder is self-critical, but also emphasizes: “Everyone wants to be in the starting line-up and that’s my claim – no question!”
Maybe he will get the opportunity to do so again on Monday against Paderborn (8.30 p.m. / Sky).
Jakub Piotrowski (23) will definitely fail in midfield. The Pole fell ill with corona and disregarded the hygiene rules (BILD reported). Already in August, Nana Ampomah (24) moved around the houses in Amsterdam, infected with the virus.
BILD wanted to know from Bodzek whether he had spoken a word of power in the cabin after the second, irresponsible incident. The captain: “No. But the doc said everything on the subject! “
And how does Bodzek assess the crime of his Polish compatriot? “On the one hand, we have to pay for it because Cuba is not available. But he has to face the consequences that the club will draw! “
