Dynamo trainer Markus Anfang (48) started the preparations in the sweltering heat straight away.  The first session of the season lasted more than two hours.

Dynamo coach Markus Anfang would like to have Christoph Daferner and Ransdorf-Yeboah Königsdörffer on the team, but he also understands everything else.

Dresden – The gallop at Dynamo Dresden was a hot one – not just because of the temperatures. The new SGD trainer Markus Anfang (48) left his boys behind for two hours and 15 minutes to start the preparation sweat.

Even the Magath hill at the other end of the training center was used extensively. 28 players were on the field, including all six newcomers. Ransford Königsdörffer (20) and Christoph Daferner (24) also trained.

That was actually the most exciting part of the whole afternoon: are they still there? If yes, how do they present themselves? Are you still up to it? They were definitely that, they gave it a lot of gas.

The next question: How much longer will the duo stay with Dynamo? Hamburger SV has Königsdörffer on the line, 1. FC Nürnberg Daferner.

“They’ll be there tomorrow too,” smiled Beginning after training. “The boys only have one career and have to make the best of it. You can’t be angry about that either. But there are two sides, the other is the club. They have signed a contract here. It has to fit somewhere for both parties “said the 48-year-old.

So that means the transfer fee has to be right. The SGD will not sell off its jewels. “I’m the coach, I like having good players, that’s two good ones. So I’d like to have them in my team too. If they want to do something different and it suits both sides, then you have to accept that.”

There is one more fact. If both go, an equivalent replacement must come. It’s not easy, especially not in the 3rd division.

Otherwise, Beginning felt the start was “warm” and looked into the sun, but also meant the reception. Despite the relegation, over 600 fans came out and applauded as the players took to the pitch. “It’s something special. It’s a traditional club, you notice that in situations like this,” said the enthusiastic coach.

Some were still missing: Michael Akoto (24) easily did his rounds off the field after his ankle injury from the relegation, Yannick Stark (31, also ankle) and Luca Herrmann (23, knee) are still in rehab.
