Farke backs Bensebaini after Werder disaster

After Ramy Bensebaini's disappointing performance against Werder Bremen on Matchday 8, Daniel Farke backed the left-back, who is still off to an extremely strong start to the season.

Ramy Bensebaini had a own-goal against Werder Bremen and his poor back-pass to Yann Sommer led to yet another opposition goal. It wasn't the 27-year-old's best day at the office to say the least. But, coach Daniel Farke is standing up for his player, who's still had quite an impressive start to the campaign:

"He has probably been the most in-form defensive player in the Bundesliga so far, he has scored outstanding goals."

"Ramy has shown a bad performance, yes. But I don't think that's a reason to put him down. Instead, make him realize what an outstanding player he is."

Juventus are showing interest in the Algerian left-back, as Farke also guaranteed a spot for Bensebaini in the lineup against Köln on Sunday.
