Fortuna Düsseldorf: Zimbo: “No more left-backs”

He is ALWAYS at the start!

In Fortuna’s two Bundesliga years, Matthias Zimmermann (28) played all games, mostly 90 minutes. However, he is currently far from that. The right-back has already missed two out of seven games.

In the 2-2 draw against Regensburg Zimmermann was missing with a muscle injury. Then he came on during the break at 3-0 in Hanover and saw yellow-red barely 7 minutes later.

Now he swears: “I will never play left-back again! That is not my position, I am no alternative. “

On the left, he was just an emergency nail – but also missed the 1-0 win against Heidenheim.

Zimmermann: “I haven’t had such a mixed start to the season for a long time. First the injury, then the suspension. But it was also good for letting go of something mentally. After my cruciate ligament rupture three years ago, I played almost all games. That was a burden. “

After relegation with Fortuna to the 2nd division, Zimmermann did not think of a change: “I’m not someone who then leaves.”

► In an internal test match on Thursday (10 against 10, 2 x 25 minutes) he was part of the team that lost 2-0. “Zimbo” relaxed: “I thought there should be a third third – I wanted to catch up! We’re better at the back … “

Incidentally, the two goals in the test were scored by Kelvin Ofori from 16 meters and Kristoffer Peterson.
