On his Instagram account, Grischa Prömel posted a photo of itself in the test match of the 1st FC Union Berlin at the fourth division SV Lichtenberg 47 (2: 0) and the five words Feels Good to be back.
On Wednesday, the 26-year-old central Mittelfeldmann finally worked again in a real game. It was a horny feeling to collect the first minutes. From the puff, it was certainly even more, says Prömel. But it was so agreed with the coach. It felt good. I hope it continues so positively.
He no longer felt pain in his use in the first 45 minutes. The stubborn problems located in the groin area are currently history. Prömel said, however, that his successful comeback had been foreseen. After all, he was able to train in the last one, two weeks already completely with the team.
a long way to old strength
All the old woman is not yet. In his two terminations in the offensive, the timing understandably did not agree. Rhythm and processes have to go back again. Then it will hopefully ring again, believes Prömel.
In his first two seasons in the Bundesliga Prömel Union was never available for injuries over the full distance. 2019/20 he came to only 16 missions. 2020/21 it was a little more with 24 encounters. Compare with each other, he does not want the situations, especially since a patella tendonitis – so a very different problem – had pulled out of traffic in the first Bundesliga year.
It is always a difficult situation when you have to go out for any longer and exercise a lot for yourself. The time without team training hurts, says Prömel. There is a lot of self-motivation required. It belongs. There you have to go through. That’s why I’m Happy that I’m fine again.
Prömel wants to mix as soon as possible in mandatory matches. That’s his goal. But he is also looking forward to the almost perfect prelude of his teammates who are started with five points in the Bundesliga season with five points and also made it into the group stage of the Europa Conference League and the second round in the DFB Cup. You can not complain. It can build on it. The guys make a great impression, says Prömel.
