Leipzig (AP) – Trainer Jesse Marsch has apologized to young striker Brian Brobbey. In the game against Bayer Leverkusen (1: 3), Marsch, who had to watch the game from home due to a corona disease and coached by phone, had the Dutchman replaced two minutes before half-time.
“I’ve spoken to Brian several times and apologized for the timing of this substitution. It is difficult to manage everything from home, especially since there is also a time difference between the live game and the television picture, ”said the RB coach. The plan was to replace Dominik Szoboszlai earlier. But this should have warmed up first. “We could certainly have waited for the break before switching,” admitted Marsch.
