Philipp and Sancho at BVB before returning

The pursued by injury pitch Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund can soon fall back on Maximilian Philipp and Jadon Sancho. The two offensive players are back in team training since this week and could be on Saturday evening against Leipzig back in the squad of BVB.

“If nothing extraordinary happens, we will now decide whether it already enough for this weekend,” said Stöger the “RevierSport”, “and if not for this, then for the next.”

Philipp, who celebrates his 24th birthday on Thursday, missed the black and yellow since the beginning of December with a knee injury. Sancho suffered in the game against the 1.FC Cologne in early February a blister on the ankle.

“Because some players came from injuries and had to play a lot, it’s an advantage for us to get some extra options,” said Stöger, who continues to be without Shinji Kagawa and Andriy Yarmolenko.

The coach hopes to be able to exchange more because of the now broader squad and “to give one or the other a little something to breath”. In addition, the returnees are good to “create a certain competitive situation.”
