Goretzka gives a buckled opponent his jersey

Leon Goretzka caused a shock when the German national soccer team beat Liechtenstein: the Bayern professional got a bad kick in the neck area. However, it hurts the culprit almost as much. At the end of the evening there is a nice reconciliation.

Quick reconciliation and a beautiful gesture: Leon Goretzka immediately forgave Liechtenstein national soccer player Jens Hofer after his kick in the neck and the following red card. “He was completely exhausted and kinked, I was very sorry for him. That’s why I gave him my jersey after the game,” said the Bayern Munich professional of “Bild”.

The player from FC Biel in the 3rd Swiss league hit Goretzka with a kick in the neck after a few minutes in the 9-0 victory of the German national team in Wolfsburg on Thursday evening. Hofer saw the red card and then apologized several times to Goretzka on the pitch and when leaving the pitch.

He was a bit shocked himself and trembled when Goretzka was lying on the ground, Hofer told Sky TV. “I apologized several times. After the break I was briefly in the dressing room, so we spoke briefly and said goodbye on the positive side. I got to know him a little and I am very happy that he is better,” said the Liechtensteiner .

Ilkay Gündogan converted the penalty kick into the first goal of the evening. Goretzka continued to play, but was replaced at halftime. Goretzka suffered “a bruise in the head and neck area,” as the German Football Association announced. That’s why he’s on Sunday (6 p.m. / RTL and in the live ticker on ntv.de) in Yerevan against Armenia “not ready for action”. Like captain Manuel Neuer, Julian Draxler, Marco Reus and Antonio Rüdiger, he will not be traveling to the last international match of the year.
