National player Niclas Füllkrug will not be available for Bundesliga club Werder Bremen on Sunday (3:30 p.m.) against SC Freiburg due to a muscular problem in his calf. The Hanseatic League announced this on Saturday. The attacker leads the Bundesliga goalscorers list with 16 goals.
“Niclas already had a few problems from the game against Mainz, which have now increased again, which is why he can’t play,” said Werder coach Ole Werner.
And further: “The loss of abundance is of course bitter for us, but we will still do everything we can to keep the three points against Freiburg in Bremen. We are confident with Niclas that he will play in Berlin next week can be available again.”
