Borussia Mönchengladbach coach Marco Rose says Hannes Wolf 'has room for improvement' after the 21-year-old made his first Bundesliga start for 'Die Fohlen' in Saturday's 3-0 loss to Borussia Dortmund.

Wolf, who has joined Gladbach on loan from RB Leipzig, needs time to get up to full speed after an injury-ridden 2019/20 campaign that didn't see him play much, according to Rose.

"We didn't have the desired power and creativity in the opposing penalty area with this constellation. Nevertheless, Hannes has made a decent start. But of course you can see that he was out for a year and that he has to find his way back. You have to give the guy a little time," Rose told Bild.

Marcus Thuram and Alassane Plea are both nearing full fitness after recovering from injuries, and one of them could start at the expense of Wolf against Union Berlin on Saturday.

"When the other guys come back, it will heat up the competition. But everyone will find his position. Hannes himself knows that he has room for improvement," said Rose.

"It's quite possible that one of them will start against Union. Breel [Embolo] is looking good as well, but I think the Union game comes too soon for him," he added.
