Sponsors' night at Elbers: Trainer considers Preußen Münster to be on a good track
After six match days in the third league, trainer Ralf Loose considers the footballers of Preußen Münster to be on a good track. "I can see clear progress. It is fun to work with the guys", said Loose on Thursday during a sponsor's night at the AGRAVIS subsidiary Theodor Elbers GmbH & Co. KG in Amelsbüren.

- Eleven of the twelve new players participated in the Preußen talk at the Theodor Elbers GmbH & Co. KG in Amelsbüren on Thursday. Coach trainer Ralf Loose and co-trainer Babacar N´Diaye spoke out on the third league team's start into the season.
The team now had to establish itself further. The defensive was already in good shape, but his team still had to improve their offensive. So far, there had been a lack of personnel options, said Loose in view of the injured Marcel Reichwein and Jesse Weißenfels, who in the meantime has at least started with running training. And with Marcus Piossek a top player had now also left the club. "I am disappointed that he has gone, especially since the squad could anyway have done with another offensive force", says the trainer.
Loose complimented the new team members. "These are players of great potential." With the exception of Chris Philipps, who has joined the national team from Luxemburg on an international match trip, all new players were present on Thursday night. In casual discussion rounds with Dirk Kugel, marketing manager at SC Preußen, the footballers commented on their first weeks in Münster. The common tenor: They are all feeling at ease, the team spirit is great.
For Lion Schweers and Lennart Stoll there was no need to acclimatise to Münster. They moved up from the junior (under 19) team of Preußen to the first league team. "The under 19 youth team of the German football league is already playing at a good level. But in senior football, the pace is clearly higher still", says Stoll. Both want to gradually approach this level. "What we are experiencing here is really a small dream come true", Schweers enthused about the first weeks as a professional player.
For the approximately 70 sponsor representatives present, it was fascinating to hear about the different stations the remaining new players had already passed. The spectrum reached from the youth boarding school of the FC Bayern, where Björn Kopplin used to live for a while to a Rumanian provincial club, where Stephane Tritz held out for four months.
