VfB Stuttgart in front of Mainz: Matarazzo favors Anton

The hope that in the light of a harmless Corona infection, Endo might still be ready for use on the last pusher, will not fulfill. “Wataru is located in domestic isolation,” says Matarazzo, which writes the captain for the game at FSV Mainz 05. “There is no chance that he will be fit. Regardless of whether he can freely or not.”

The failure of the Japanese, which is the most powerful Stuttgart this season, hits the Swabia twice hard after ATANKAN Karazor also fails after its 5th yellow card. As a result, a gap gaps in the defensive center, which applies to conclude. Especially on the six-position right in front of the quadruple chain, on which Karazor has set up with good benefits in recent weeks. For all the abundance with Naouirou Ahamada, after his toe operation, a further alternative is for this task.

Matarazzo does not want to look into the cards

Matarazzo has dealt with all sorts of different occupancy opportunities in recent days. “It’s all about what game types we need in Mainz on the place. Whether a sturdy or rather a gambling,” explains the US Italian, who speaks openly about the logical candidates. “We could operate with a Waldemar Anton or Hiroki Ito on the six before the chain. Or with Clinton Mola, if he would be fit to the game.” Even the ENZO Millot is actually offensively the one or the other thought, if you are looking for “a game-stronger types”. Daniel Didavi, which the coach has been defensively tested in the recent past in training, does not question because of its Achilles tendon complaints. The very last means would also be conceivable to “change the structure”. The least considered idea. Because Matarazzo obviously has a favorite: Waldemar Anton, whose name he does not take into his mouth. “The decision has not been made yet.”

Matarazzo: “Anton did not mind”

However, the head coach does not make a secret that he deals intensively with the central defender who has eaten his youth barrier for this role. He has already dressed very often with his ex-club Hannover 96. “Waldi is robust, duel, has a good intensity in its game and the leadership qualities you need on this position. That could fit well,” says Matarazzo, who looked at the 25-year-old games as a sixth and the player spoke. “He did not mind.”
