Kramarić: "We want to get back on track"

Andrej Kramarić missed the match in Augsburg through injury, but the 29-year-old is hoping to return against Bayer 04 Leverkusen on Monday (20:30 CET/Live Ticker at In an interview, the striker discussed his chances of playing, the final weeks of the season and Leverkusen's team.

Andrej, you missed the Augsburg match through injury. How are you doing and how likely is it that you'll be able to return to action against Leverkusen on Monday?

"I'm doing better. I completed parts of team training on Wednesday for the first time. I'm hoping I can cope well with it all."

After the loss in Augsburg, the team is looking over their shoulder in the table for the first time. What will it come down to for TSG until the end of the season?

"We still have seven games remaining and we want to show what we're all about. We're obviously not satisfied with the results and the performances. That's not where we want to be."

Leverkusen changed coaches two weeks ago. How do you assess the team?

"They have a very strong squad and have great individual quality. That applies to every part of the team. They have not always been able to get the results they wanted this year. That has surprised me, because they're actually one of the best teams in the division."

What kind of game are you expecting?

"If we produce our best-possible performance on the pitch, anything's possible. Unfortunately, we haven't managed that recently. We want to get back on track. If both teams play to their limit, it could end up being an interesting game with lots of goalscoring opportunities."
