The TSG 1899 Hoffenheim can hope for the first time in this Bundesliga season for the deployment of Vice World Champion Andrej Kramaric.
The 28-year-old Croatian will be back in the frame on Sunday against FC Schalke 04 for the first time, as Coach Alfred Schreuder said at the press conference.” He is one of the best players the TSG has ever had. We’re very glad he’s still with us. His quota and what he has shown here is very, very good,”Schreuder praised. Kramaric was “a special player”.
The most likely option for the Schalke game is probably a joker role. To a possible starting line, the coach said, “This is a possibility, but normally we did not do this.”
Kramaric had been missing for several months due to a knee injury. The use of middle fielder Florian Grillitsch is questionable after an inner strip laceration.
