On Wednesday, the VfB crew make their way to their winter training-camp in La Manga. Whilst in Spain, head-coach Hannes Wolf’s men will continue preparing for the second half of the Bundesliga season until January 9th. Christian Gentner & Co. were in action a day before, as they undertook their initial performance tests on the treadmill. Over the past two weeks, since the final competitive game in 2017, the VfB players have been working on individual training programmes.
As from Wednesday, the players will then begin with full team training once again. Whilst in La Manga, the Cannstatt Boys will play two test-friendlies against FC Twente Enschede (Saturday, January 6th, 15:00 CET in La Manga) and KV Oostende (Monday, January 8th, kick-off time and location yet to be finalised).
The following squad of VfB players will make the trip to La Manga:
Ron-Robert Zieler, Jens Grahl, Alexander Meyer; Emiliano Insua, Dennis Aogo, Timo Baumgartl, Santiago Ascacibar, Takuma Asano, Anastasios Donis, Carlos Mané, Chadrac Akolo, Christian Gentner, Benjamin Pavard, Orel Mangala, Dzenis Burnic, Mario Gomez, Holger Badstuber, Ailton Ferreira Silva, Berkay Özcan, Andreas Beck, Daniel Ginczek, Marcin Kaminski, Nicolas Sessa
