USA youngsters Zinedine Kroeten and Emmanuel Iwe set for two-week trial with Werder Bremen

American teenagers Zinedine Kroeten and Emmanuel Iwe will have a two-week trial with Bundesliga club Werder Bremen, starting 4 November 2018.

Kroeten and Iwe - budding midfielders born in 2000 - were recommended to the club by Chicago-based scout Thomas Gansauge, who made 81 Bundesliga appearances for Hansa Rostock and Arminia Bielefeld between 1996-2000. They will train with either Bremen's U19s or U23s team.

"We've received videos and collected further information," explained Bremen sporting director Frank Baumann. "We often invite overseas players for trials, it's nothing out of the ordinary. We're a long way off signing them."
