Wout Weghorst was apparently not happy with his trainer's choice to replace him. The Dutch striker had to leave the field after 68 for Andrej Kramaric, who then also scored.
For a long time, the Bundesliga match between TSG Hoffenheim and FC Köln seemed to end in a goalless draw. Hoffenheim coach Pellegrino Matarazzo therefore decided to replace Weghorst with Kramaric.

The 31-year-old goal thief did not agree with that, to say the least. Weghorst shouted at the entire stadium and then hit the roof of the dugout.
Ultimately, it was Köln that opened the scoring after 80 minutes of play. Max Finkgrafe curled a free kick out of reach of goalkeeper Oliver Baumann and scored his first goal in professional football.
In the end it turned out not to be enough for victory. In injury time, Kramaric, who replaced Weghorst, made it 1-1 with a dropkick in the box.
Weghorst has been playing for Hoffenheim since the start of this season, who rent him from Burnley until the end of the season. The German team pays one and a half million euros to use his services.
He has scored five Bundesliga goals for Hoffenheim so far. The club is eighth in the rankings and could even have taken over seventh place with a win over Köln.
