Bad news for TSG Hoffenheim. The Kraichgauer has to do without defensive ace Ermin Bicakcic for months. The 30-year-old was seriously injured last weekend.

Bundesliga club TSG 1899 Hoffenheim will have to do without central defender Ermin Bicakcic for a long time. The 30-year-old Bosnian suffered a tear in the anterior cruciate ligament and a tear in the medial meniscus in the 4-1 win over FC Bayern, TSG announced on Tuesday evening after an arthroscopy. “That is unbelievably sad”, said sports director Alexander Rosen from Hoffenheim.

Bicakcic was recently “in great shape”. In the two previous Bundesliga matches in Cologne (3-2) and against Bayern, the veteran was in the base of coach Sebastian Hoeneß’s team.

TSG has not provided any information about the potential downtime of Bicakcic. “We will fight for Ermin in the upcoming tasks and of course we will support him by all means so that he can be back on the field as soon as possible,” added Rosen.
