Ghana defender Kassim Nuhu Adams has revealed his excitement on making an injury return in TSG Hoffenheim’s victory over Nuremberg in the German Bundesliga on Saturday.
The defender was making his first appearance since picking up an injury in matchday two of the Bundesliga against Freiburg.
Adams came on in the 68th minute to replace Kevin Akpoguma as Hoffenheim secured an away victory over the Bundesliga returnees.
“After a little over 4weeks on the sidelines, I feel very happy to play football once again and help @achtzehn99_en get all 3 points. Fans were great today. On to the next one. Alhamdulillah, Allah is Great” the 23-year-old posted on Twitter.
On loan Arsenal forward Reiss Nelson got Hoffeinheim in the game after grabbing an equalizer in the 50th minute when Hanno Behrens had put Nuremberg in the lead after 18 minutes.
Nelson grabbed his second seven minutes later before Adam Szalai sealed victory in the 67th minute.
With the win, Hoffenheim moved to eighth on the Bundesliga table. Their next assignment is a Champions League clash against Lyon.
