Becker battles illness ahead of Stuttgart
By Peter Vice @ViceytheSS
Union Berlin trainer Urs Fischer revealed that talismanic attacker Sheraldo Becker is battling illness ahead of the weekend clash with VfB Stuttgart.
"In the end, I hope it's not too bad and he can come back tomorrow and take part in training," Fischer said at a Thursday presser, "We still have Jordan Siebatcheu, though he and Kevin Behrens are perhaps too similar center-forward types. Jamie Leweling and Sven Michel are available too."
Fischer wished to make clear that - even if he was facing the league's current last-placed team - there was very much a need to take the encounter seriously. The FCU gaffer called the Swabians an "active and confident" side that could pose problems in the final third.
