He was substituted at half-time against Meppen and had to start again in the 75th minute. Before that, he had already missed a few matches because he was sick with a virus. Before the winter break, he had acquired match training with short appearances and wanted to attack in the preparation to come. The fact that Steffen Baumgart is really counting on him is demonstrated by his ten appearances in the Bundesliga so far.
