The whole league trembles in front of this Thomas Ouwejan and his sharp ones. Eight times, the Dutch already prepared a goal, he achieved three goals himself. The left outer car of FC Schalke 04 was so far feared with the opponents, the Dutchman made here in the 3-5-2 system under coach Dimitrios Grammozis always powerful steam.
Meanwhile, Mike's Büskens say that at the side line, one of his first official actions as a transitional coach was the tactical change - away from 3-5-2, towards the four-chain. Against FC Ingolstadt (3: 0) and Hannover 96 (2: 1) missed Ouwejan violated, against Dresden he stood in the starting eleven. It was hardly for development.
"Not again at 100 percent" - or even victims of the system?
OUWEJANS Previous position on the left outer track is no longer available in Büskens' basic order. On the corners and free kicks of the 25-year-old, of course, the new role has no influence, but against Dresden (2: 1) you could quite gain the impression that Ouwejan loses offensive strength. His headball chance (59.) was almost its only dangerous action in the opponent's half.
Büsken tried to explain later that Ouwejan's performance "had less to do with the position", "but rather that he could not be at 100 percent after his injury." The upcoming games will show if that was actually the reason. The next three opponents hot Heidenheim (Saturday, 13.30, live! At Dutchman made), Darmstadt and Bremen.
