In Sunday's 2-1 loss in Frankfurt, Josuha Guilavogui, one of VfL Wolfsburg's two long-term injured players, made his comeback. The captain was a late substitute after tearing his cruciate ligament at the end of August. Against Hoffenheim on Saturday there could be the next return.
The talk is of Felix Klaus. For the summer newcomer has recently made great progress in the build-up training. Monday's 2-1 defeat of Wolfsburg's promotion squad in the Premier League International Cup against Tottenham Hotspur's U23s was the first time he had been on the pitch for more than 90 minutes since April – and he immediately put an exclamation mark on it. After three minutes, his shot smacked against the post. Daniel Hanslik did better, coming on in the 81st minute. In the second minute, the VfL scored the 1:2 connecting goal.
But Klaus' appearance for the development squad showed he is not far away from the Bundesliga squad. However, the road to the starting eleven is a long one. On the one hand because the 26-year-old lacks playing practice, on the other hand because the outside positions with Daniel Ginczek and Admir Mehmedi in the 4-3-3 system are currently well occupied.
