In the 70th minute, the midfielder left the field. He went no further. And so his nail had to end SV Werder Bremen in the Stadium of Friendship from outside. “It’s our fault. In the first half, Cottbus had two corners and nothing. And we felt like there were seven to eight actions in the box that we just didn’t play right. You can stumble in the first round of the cup if things don’t go your way,” he argued Leonardo Bittencourt And not only that: “In the second half I wasn’t happy with the team from the start, we played a bit arrogantly. We made it harder on ourselves than it really was. But whether that was cool now or not, it won’t matter to anyone tomorrow.”

That stuck Leonardo Bittencourt the sports field and devoted himself to the human side of this game. Franklin Bittencourt’s dad is a legend at Cottbus because he made Bundesliga history there as a professional. Leonardo’s son grew up there, he was at Energy Cottbus to the professional football player. “It was an amazing feeling, a lot of emotions came up. I sweated so much here, experienced so much, had so much fun, but also cried so much,” said the 28-year-old with bright eyes and couldn’t stop: “I’ve met so many coaches here and even my own teacher. He congratulated me. I was really happy about that. Because I still remember him telling me: “You better learn, because you don’t know about football…” Bittencourt laughs, he’s happy. I wish he wasn’t the painful one calf, which forces him to return home early. (knee)
