Christoph Kramer has had a painful week in England. On Wednesday in Augsburg, the Gladbach professional had to be substituted with a suspected concussion. In the 4-1 win against TSG Hoffenheim he was fouled by opponent Angelino. Nevertheless, Kramer gave the all-clear on Saturday after the Hoffenheim game.

“I’m fine. Otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to play either. I was checked out, there were no concerns about the head hit, so I was able to play in Hoffenheim,” said the 2014 world champion. “And now, after the win I’m fine too.” (Quoted via

In the 0-1 draw in Augsburg, the defensive midfielder was hit in the head by an opponent’s free kick and had to be treated for a few minutes. At half-time, Kramer stayed in the dressing room, complaining of a headache. A day later, Gladbach coach Daniel Farke gave the all-clear: “Today he felt better. But there are still investigations to come.” (Quoted via Sport1)

In Hoffenheim, Kramer was in the starting eleven despite the headshot from the Augsburg game and was fouled badly after 15 minutes by TSG left-back Angelino. The fact that the Spaniard only saw the yellow box caused a lack of understanding for Sky expert Erik Meijer. “He doesn’t go to the ball, he goes to the leg. For me it’s a red card,” said the ex-professional. (Quoted via

Borussia Kellerkind will welcome Schalke 04 next Saturday. Perhaps Kramer will at least survive this game without any major moments of shock.
