From kicker today: ANTHONY SANNEH: A 'LOSER' OF THE UNCOMMON KIND The starting eleven of 1.FC Nürnberg is secure - deciding was the last test vs 2nd div team VfB Lübeck (1:1) which just delighted coach Augenthaler about twenty minutes, but otherwise was disappointing and therefore completely different to the 4:1 vs Blackburn Rovers four days earlier. In Lübeck Dieter Frey, Sasa Ciric and Stephan Paßlack were missing, who all started vs the English. And this was quite the formation Klaus Augenthaler has in his mind for the starting lineup vs Bochum. "In Lübeck I was confessed that my ideas were right", says the coach and also indirectly who'll be the losers of the pre-season. Take the defence and Marek Nikl. For the defensive allrounder and concerning the potential a complete Bundesliga player there is no space in the four-player-defence-chain. This will be occupied with Tomasz Kos and Dusan Petkovic in the central defence, Anthony Sanneh as right and Milorad Popovic as left backer. The 23 year old new player from OFK Belgrade confessed why he is a promising talent. He is strong in duels and playing quality, and he's got the necessary speed. There's a plain reason why he is prefered to the routined Marek Nikl (53 Bundesliga games): he's left footed. Only in emergency cases Klaus Augenthaler occupies the wings with 'wrong footed' players. Anthony Sanneh proves that seemingly winners can be losers in a special circumstance. The WC participant is continuing his good performances of the last period of the 2001/02 season, is logically seeded, but not - like Klaus Augenthaler previously announced - as head of the defence chain. He's got to play on the wing, which is not the favourite position of the US national player. But: the Club coach wants to decide depending on the opponent whether he plays with three or four defenders. In a three defender system Anthony Sanneh would be the boss in the center and Marek Nikl his 'assistant' on the half left position.
