The official line from TSG 1899 Hoffenheim holds that newly-acquired striker Mërgim Berisha is merely undergoing "further examinations" in the interest of precisely diagnosing a recently sustained knee injury. German footballing journalist Michael Pfeifer of the Bundesrepublik's preeminent footballing publication - citing his own sources - claims that the twice-capped German national team attacker looks to have incurred an ACL tear. Such an injury could sideline him for the rest of the season.

Berisha - who moved to Kraichgau from Augsburg near the end of the recent autumn transfer window - is certainly not available to play against his former club this weekend. Berisha moved to Hoffenheim from Augsburg in the hopes of furthering his international career. The 25-year-old, behind starting strikers Maximilian Beier and Wout Weghorst on the depth chart, has made just six substitute league appearances and one start in the cup.
