It runs at Simon Makienok. According to only six start-ups in the season, the edgy striker was in the last two games in the first eleven – and controlled one goal directly. The icing on the cake: The gate for the interim 3-0 at the victory against the KSC scored the Dane worth seeing by Volley. So it should not be surprising if the 2.01 Metermann can also return to Dynamo Dresden away from the kick-off on Saturday (13.30, live! At games) against Dynamo Dresden.
“very nice loud” return?
The venue already knows Makienok at least. Between January and June 2020, the 31-year-old ran on Dynamo Dresden in the Rudolf-Harbig Stadium before moving to the Kiez gamess. For the former Danish national player goes against the ex club for the first time, for whom he marked three goals in nine games. “We played against Dresden twice and I was not there both,” Makienok looks back on earlier games. All the more he is looking forward to the duel, before “hopefully more fans in the stadium. In Dresden it can be quite loud.”
Nevertheless, he realized: “Even if there are many opposing fans alone in away games, I’m looking forward to it.” Especially since it is about every point for St. Pauli as currently third in the ascent race. A threesome against relegation candidates Dresden should therefore almost be duty. “We also go to Dresden and think that we can get three points,” the Dane underlined the “mentality” of his team.
Makienok is “not a big stress”
Whether it’s Makienok’s last game against Dresden in the jersey of the Kiez games, is so far unclear. The contract of the striker runs out at the end of the season. “We have already led discussions, already in the winter training store,” said the 31-year-old. So far still “nothing decided.”
Anyway: “I do not make a big stress at my age and do not lose my focus either, just because it does not mean, as it continues for me. I take things as you come.” With a further hit on Saturday against his ex-club, however, Makienok is likely to recommend further for a new contract.
