With relegation battle he knows himself, in terms of relegation games he is even a true expert. Koen Castels prevailed in 2013 with the TSG Hoffenheim against the 1st FC Kaiserslautern, 2017 and 2018, the Belgian retained with the VfL Wolfsburg against Eintracht Braunschweig and Holstein Kiel the upper hand. For a fourth time, the keeper wants to go out of the way. With a victory against Arminia Bielefeld, the VFL can make a big step on Saturday. Castels do not want to talk about a final, but says, “It can mean a lot in the direction that we can stay in the first league.”

“I am pleased that I have no more pain”

The 29-year-old wants to actively support his team. The past four weeks and three games was the final person except battle, a violation of the Beckenkamm, as he reports, prepared greater problems than initially feared. On Wednesday, however, Castels represses the team training. “I am pleased that I have no more pain,” he says about two individual units in recent days. “There was no reaction.”

A reaction is expected to expect Managing Director Jörg Schmadtke (“I’m sure a learning process will occur”) on Saturday from his team, which at the 0: 3 in Augsburg has presented anything but BundesligaAly. How does VfL go to the next basement duel with Bielefeld? “There is no fear there,” Castels advises himself and his teammates. “Together we have to find a solution that no longer happens to us as in Augsburg this season.”

“The players know what they have to do”

Last Sunday, coach Florian Kohfeldt, meanwhile missed out of isolation, was missing due to Covid 19 infection, which was no reason for the desolate performance for the captain. “The players know what they have to do. That should not be an excuse for the game or performance. Behind it should not hide.”
