It was a sign of life from someone who in Nuremberg has almost been forgotten in the last few weeks.
In the test against Altach (2-0), club attacker Dennis Borkowski (19) finally set some exclamation marks again. He initiated both Duman goals and was otherwise the most noticeable club player. The center forward has not been on the pitch for a minute in the second division since mid-September. It seemed as if Borkowski had already lost touch a little.
But he doesn’t see it that way at all, says to BILD: “I wouldn’t speak of a form depth right now. The main reason for my absence were muscular problems, which led to the fact that I had to skip some units. As a result, I was back in training that I had to make up for. “
But he left no doubt about the personal significance of the strong performance for him: “For my head as well as my body, it was just important to have been on the pitch for 90 minutes and to show everyone what I can do.”
Can he now play in the 2nd division again?
Most recently he was on the field for 57 minutes in the 1-0 win over Hansa Rostock on matchday 7. On Friday (6.30 p.m. / Sky) in Sandhausen it could finally be that time again.
Borkowski: “I always have hope. It was a good thing that I could show myself now. I haven’t spoken to the trainer about Sandhausen yet. “
