The parties were shocked visibly. Marco Meyerhöfer lay with a pain-distorted face on the ground, his teammates waved hurriedly the team hearts – and Jens Petter Hage also seemed to be shattered in the horror.
Three minutes before the end of the regular season of the guest performance of the SPVGG Greuther Fürth at Eintracht Frankfurt (0: 0) Hage had fouled his oppereta Meyerhöfer in midfield on the side line – and the defender of the guests at the fall an obviously severe injury to the ankle suffered. The 26-year-old had to be brought to the hospital on Saturday night with the leg of the field and immediately.
“That overshadows the game. Today there are no winners,” said Eintracht captain Sebastian Rode after the game.
A point brought: “The joy is clouded”
Fürth’s coach Stefan Leitl was able to win little in the “Treat Fight” in the Deutsche Bank Park. “The joy is clouded,” said the coach of the Central Franconia and expressly thanked the medical department for the Frankfurt team doctor Prof. Dr. med. Florian Pfab for the first supply on the grass.
Especially bitter: Meyerhöfer comes from the offspring of Hesse, once again played for the SGE for eight years. On his return to the stadium in the city forest before 50,500 fans, his wife and family were present – and had to accompany the right-back to the hospital in the end.
Hauge “does it madly sorry”
Meanwhile, the previously replaced haude searched after the final whistle immediately the conversation with Meyerhöfer’s teammates in the Fürther cabin. The Dane was neither with particularly a lot of pace nor with stretched leg or open sole in Meyerhöfer, but rather slipped and unhappy on his ankle. Still on the field he squatted a few tears, referee Bastian thanked thanked to him rightly showed him the yellow card.
“He is very sorry,” Frankfurt’s coach Oliver Glasner reported. “These are all colleagues, that’s natural.” Hage received from Meyerhöfer’s players Applause for his commitment and is likely to like Glasners like the rest of the Bundesliga: “Getting well to Marco Meyerhöfer!”
