On Saturday, Dikeni Salifou celebrated his season debut for the SV Werder Bremen U23s. So far, the summer new signing has been injured, now the Bundesliga club wants to slowly build up the youngster in the reserve.
Dikene Salifou left FC Augsburg's youth department for SV Werder Bremen in the summer. There, the defensive midfielder should succeed in making the leap into professional football; Werder plans to have the youngster firmly in the squad, but his first steps in green and white could hardly have gone any worse for the 19-year-old. Salifou promptly got injured and missed most of the pre-season and the first few weeks and months of the season with a torn muscle fibre. On Saturday, the Togo native was finally allowed to play for his new club in a competitive game: Salifou could play 45 minutes for the U23s in the regional league.
