Werder Bremen’s director of sport, Rouven Schröder, is confident that Anthony Ujah is looking forward to the DFB Cup clash against the Nigerian’s former club Cologne at the Weser Stadion after the clubs were drawn against each other in the second round of the competition.
Bremen qualified for the second round after they edged out third division side Würzburger Kickers 2-0.
Ujah scored his first official goal for Bremen in the Cup encounter having previously scored 12 goals for Cologne last season.
He joined Bremen in the summer on a four-year deal in a move that angered the Cologne faithful.
“That was a really entertaining draw and a good one for us and our fans. We are finally getting a home game in the cup. It will be a footballing party.
“I am sure that our number 21 (Ujah) is especially looking forward to it. Köln are attractive opponents, and ones that we want to beat to ensure our own progression,” Schroeder told the Werder Bremen’s official website.
The Nigerian international who has five caps to his name is one of the 18 overseas-based players invited by coach Sunday Oliseh for next month’s African Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania.
Ujah has made two appearances this season for SV Werder and has scored once in the DFB Cup.
