Mainz (AP) – Mainz coach Jan-Moritz Lichte considers newcomer Kevin Stöger’s request for more playing time in the Bundesliga as legitimate but pointless.
“No player will get the chance to play again if he asks in the newspaper. Not a minute,” said the 40-year-old coach before the match between FSV Mainz 05 and 1. FC Köln on Saturday (3.30 pm). / Sky). “His position remains unchanged.”
In an interview with the “kicker”, the 27-year-old Austrian midfielder was dissatisfied with his previous game and said: “Unfortunately I am still waiting for my first start at Mainz.”
Stöger came to Rheinhessen via a free transfer in early October and has played just 43 Bundesliga minutes in three games so far. Light did not “in principle” rule out that Stöger could be used against Cologne.
