Strange sacking of VfB: “It won’t happen to him again”

Written by admin

INaweru Ahmed must have been sitting in the booth like a heap of misery. After the French midfielder’s bizarre yellow and red card in the 78th minute, VfB Stuttgart conceded the equalizer 2-2 at TSG 1899 Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga on Tuesday night. The 20-year-old received a second warning for unsportsmanlike behaviour, because when he was celebrating after captain Wataru Endo scored the opening goal, he climbed the stairs in front of the away building and cheered along with the VfB fans. After all, he has prepared the portal.

“The rule is there, so the yellow-red is correct. He’s a young player, it was a bit of a lack of attention on his part,” sporting director Fabian Wolgmuth said with a slight patience. “Of course it was also part of the puzzle for us to have to accept the equalizer in the end. This will never happen to him again.” Particularly bitter: Frenchman Ahmed received his first yellow card for his complaints. VfB will miss him on Friday (8:30 pm in FAZ live for the Bundesliga and on DAZN) at the start of the second half of the season at RB Leipzig.

Coach Bruno Labbadia “didn’t notice” the reason for Ahmed’s dismissal and had to be explained by the fourth official. Badia did not want to blame the player, he was even more sorry: “We are dealing with a very young guy: if you saw him in the booth, how he was on the ground… Mistakes are part of it.” He saw his first yellow card for the complaint.

In any case, Hoffenheim took advantage of the superior figure against their national rivals and equalized in the fourth minute of stoppage time with the goal of Croatian World Cup bronze medalist Andrej Kramaric. “It’s very bitter. With the red card, the game tilts a bit. If we don’t get them, I think we’ll leave the field as winners,” said professional VFB substitute Chris Voehrich in an interview with Sky. In between, Serho Guerassi justified against relegation-threatened Stuttgart.

Even goalkeeper Florian Müller could not believe that the Swabians’ first away win in over a year had not worked out. Especially since VfB would then have tied Hoffenheim on points. “That would have been a very important point today. We fought, it’s so brutally bitter and so upsetting.”
