Werder Bremen’s striker Marvin Ducksch thought about retiring during his time at Borussia Dortmund. In retrospect, his training club BVB only got off well in part with the 27-year-old attacker.
“There was a time when I said: ‘Now I’ll stop’. I was in a really nasty situation. I felt really bad. When I returned to Borussia Dortmund after being loaned to Paderborn, I had to basically begging that I can keep fit in the second team,” Ducksch said in an interview with the portal “dyke room” back to the incidents in 2015.
At that time, the native of Dortmund only scored one goal in nine Bundesliga games for the SCP. However, two former BVB U23 coaches prevented his resignation.
“Fortunately, there was a coach in David Wagner who already knew me and gave me the chance. Then came Daniel Farke, he also relied on me. That showed me that the path was the right one and that quitting wasn’t an option for me me,” said Ducksch.
The 1.88 meter tall center forward was on the pitch in eight competitive games (one goal) for the BVB professionals. Ducksch also played for FC St. Pauli, Holstein Kiel, Fortuna Düsseldorf and Hannover 96. He moved from Lower Saxony to Werder Bremen last summer.
Werder Bremen: Vaccination pass affair “a very difficult topic”
Things are going very well for Ducksch there. However, there was a lot of unrest in the club because of the affair about the fake ex-coach Markus Anfang.
“It’s a very difficult topic. He definitely has his reasons for not getting vaccinated. You have to respect that,” said Ducksch. “I think he knows himself that he made a mistake with the vaccination card.”
Ducksch explained that he had not spoken to Beginning since his resignation. “He’s going through a difficult phase. I just want to leave him alone. When everything has calmed down a bit, I think we’ll talk on the phone again.”
