All four Gladbach goalkeepers absent from training

None of Gladbach’s four first-team goalkeepers were fit to train yesterday.

Borussia Mönchengladbach began their preparations for the coming Bundesliga game against SC Freiburg yesterday without any of their four first-team goalkeepers.

With first-choice goalkeeper Jonas Omlin (thigh), Jan Olschowsky (thumb tendon injury and flu), Tobias Sippel (knock) and Max Brüll (thigh) all absent, academy goalkeepers Ben Zich and Tiago Pereira Cardoso helped out in training.

“It’s obviously not ideal to have four goalkeepers absent at the same time,” commented Gladbach coach Daniel Farke.

“We are confident that Jan and Tobi will be able to return by Thursday at the latest. We are also hoping that Jonas will be able to return in time for Saturday.”

Marcus Thuram training individually due to a calf problem.

“We’re hoping that he will be feeling better tomorrow so that we can increase his workload and maybe even have him return to team training.”
