Hoffenheim goalkeeper Koen Casteels has already undergone surgery after breaking his shin in Sunday's 1-1 draw with Hertha Berlin.

The Belgian's season is over after he picked up the injury in a mid-air collision with Hertha forward Adrian Ramos, who was reportedly close to tears for his part in the clash.

"The whole game is overshadowed by this injury," said Hoffenheim coach Markus Gisdol at the post-match press conference. "He's been given some painkillers and has already been taken to hospital.

"After that injury, you could see that the whole team was in shock."

So too was Ramos, whose coach Jos Luhukay said was "distraught" by the "absolutely unfortunate" incident.

With regular number two Jens Grahl injured with a thigh strain, Alexander Stolz took Casteels' place for the final 20 minutes, making his Bundesliga debut at the age of 30.

ever ceases to amaze me when ex players come out with comments like that. Clearly they have zero interest in the best interests of a club that provided them with a living to be making such idiotic and boorish comments as that. Shame on you Jimmy Case.

ait, so now he can get injured when he's not on international duty? It's almost as if his previous injury could've happened at any time and being with the England squad had nothing to do with it.
