Füchse nearing full strength
Berlin coach Jaron Sioewert was a happy man after two of his star players made their comebacks.
German international Fabian Wiede and Spanish defender Viran Morros returned from injury, and while they didn’t make the biggest impact they will add to the team’s depth as they return to full fitness and form.
We won the fifth game and are top of the group, that was the aim for tonight. We played two days ago and wanted to put every man on the court. I am happy that we saw another young player with Gustav König but with the injury to Marian Michalczik our win is tempered.
