VfB Stuttgart is currently on an almost eerie high in the Bundesliga. The Swabians won four of the first five games, scoring only one goal fewer than league leaders FC Bayern. In addition to the outshining goalgetter Serhou Guirassy, other VfB stars are currently convincing across the board.
It is obvious that there is currently no way around VfB center forward Guirassy. The 27-year-old has an outstanding ten goals to his name after five games. That’s three more than Bayern’s superstar Harry Kane has managed to date.
In addition to the top goalscorer, other VfB professionals have also found their way back to their absolute best in recent weeks and months and have thus played their part in the Swabians’ steep upward trend.
One of them is certainly Pascal Stenzel, who has been acting as Mister Reliable on the right defensive wing since the start of the season. There was also extra praise for the 27-year-old from Stuttgart sports director Fabian Wohlgemuth, who emphasized to “Bild”: “Pascal in particular belongs to the group of those who have made a visible step in their development under Sebastian Hoeneß.

Wohlgemuth particularly emphasized that the full-back appears both defensively and offensively and is therefore an important factor in all phases of the game for the third-place team: “He provides stability at the back and, with his excellent technique, is also an asset to our offensive game. Our good one Start of the season has many fathers – and Pascal is definitely one of them.”
After the previously injured Josha Vagnoman (broken metatarsal) returned to the same position, real competition has now broken out in the country. At the moment, Stenzel has made himself indispensable in Sebastian Hoeneß’s successful system.
