Bremen (AP) - Werder Bremen is hoping for the DFB Cup semi-final against RB Leipzig to use a last injured or ailing quartet.

With Milos Veljkovic (broken nose), Marco Friedl (pelvic bruise), Ömer Toprak (calf injury) and Leonardo Bittencourt (capsule injury) there is hope of participating on Friday (8.30 p.m.), announced the Bundesliga club on Monday.

It is still unclear who will be the coach of the Bremen team on Friday.

On Monday, the committees continued to discuss the future of head coach Florian Kohfeldt, who is about to end after seven league defeats in a row.

Sports managing director Frank Baumann had announced a decision on Sunday by “Tuesday morning at the latest”.

Then the preparation for the cup game should begin.

The team had a day off on Monday.

According to matching media reports, Thomas Schaaf should act as interim coach in the event of a separation from Kohfeldt until the end of the season.

The Werder legend celebrates her 60th birthday on Friday.
