After starting the first two games of the season for VfB Stuttgart, Holger Badstuber has had to settle for the bench lately.
Stuttgart coach Tayfun Korkut currently prefers to play Benjamin Pavard and Timo Baumgartl in the central defense, and therefore, Badstuber has to be patient at the moment.
"If you have four centre-backs in the squad, you have to make decisions as a coach. We have recently won points with a duo consisting of Timo Baumgartl and Benjamin Pavard. Holger knows he has to wait for his chance," Korkut told Bild and added:
"No player is satisfied if he doesn't play. Holger knows why his situation has come to this after the start of the season."
Badstuber, 29, joined Stuttgart from Bayern München in 2017. During the summer, he extended his contact so it runs until 2021.
