Most successful TSG goalscorer

    A TSG Hoffenheim without Andrej Kramaric (31) is difficult to imagine after around six years together. This was underpinned in March when the Croatian extended his originally expiring contract until 2025. Although the attacker was often linked with a move during his time at the Kraichgau, he stayed. In an interview with the “Editorial network Germany“ Kramaric justified his stay, among other things, with concerns about settling-in problems at another club.

    It was a minor reason that in the past there were enough players who had to learn after a change that the step to a new club and into a new environment could be difficult, said the striker. “If Lionel Messi in Paris and Cristiano Ronaldo in Manchester already had adjustment problems, then such a step would certainly be even more difficult for ‘smaller’ players like me,” emphasized Kramaric. The right-footed player first came to Hoffenheim on loan from Leicester City in January 2016, before being signed a few months later for 11 million euros and becoming the most expensive purchase in the club’s history at the time. Previously, Kramaric played exclusively in his homeland for Dinamo Zagreb, neighboring city NK Lokomotiva and HNK Rijeka.

    At Hoffenheim he developed into one of the most conspicuous offensive players in the Bundesliga. In 226 games he scored 49 assists and a total of 105 goals, making him the most successful goalscorer in TSG history. He can also be relied on in the new season, as shown by four points in seven appearances. Before the duel on Sunday (7:30 p.m.) with SC Freiburg, TSG are fourth with twelve points, which is “not least” due to new coach André Breitenreiter, said Kramaric. “We currently feel a lot of self-confidence and know exactly what we have to do every minute on the pitch. Together we will now do everything we can to ensure that nothing changes,” he emphasized.
