Letsch speaks of a “luxury situation” before the BVB duel in the DFB Cup

Thomas Letsch, coach of VfL Bochum, can draw on almost his entire squad in the round of 16 of the DFB Cup against Borussia Dortmund.

“I am very happy about the situation that we are spoiled for choice,” said the 54-year-old, speaking of a “luxury situation”. Defender Cristian Gamboa is the only field player out.

On Wednesday evening (8:45 p.m. / ZDF and Sky) VfL does not want to concentrate mainly on the defense against the favorite Ruhr area rivals, but rather play boldly forward.

“The idea of ​​safety here in a home game in a round of 16 would be the wrong approach,” said Letsch. “Without courage and risk, we certainly won’t stand a chance.” Bochum has won all five home duty games under Letsch.
