Gladbach's Patrick Herrmann has few complaints about starting on the substitutes' bench from time to time.

Having been limited to just three starts in all competitions for Borussia Mönchengladbach this season, the 29-year-old insists coming off the bench is not a problem for him.

"After 12 years with Borussia, sitting on the bench from time to time is nothing new for me. I have become more realistic over the years," Herrmann told Ran and continued:

"I can see that we have an outstanding squad with players like Florian Neuhaus, Jonas Hofmann and Marcus Thuram, who has rightly been called up to the French national team for the first time.

"Of course I still want to play as much as possible and score a lot of goals. It's normal to have to get in line at times. But when I'm needed, I try to give everything and show that I'm still here."

Herrmann will be competing with the likes of Valentino Lazaro and Hannes Wolf to start on the right wing against Augsburg on Saturday after Jonas Hofmann sustained an injury on international duty last week.
