Top field player Felix Götze suffered a hairline crack in his skull in the 0: 4 (0: 2) defeat of the third division soccer team 1. FC Kaiserslautern at Viktoria Berlin on Sunday. The Palatinate announced this preliminary diagnosis on Sunday evening.
The 23-year-old is currently in the intensive care unit for further observation and examination, but in view of the circumstances he is doing so well. After a collision with team-mate Boris Tomiak, Götze had to be replaced in the 72nd minute and carried off the pitch on a stretcher.
“He was no longer really responsive”
FCK coach Marco Antwerpen (49) said after the game on “Magenta”: “When you see something like that, it naturally takes you with you. I saw the boy, he was no longer really responsive. We hope it’s nothing worse. “
Fortunately, this hope was confirmed. Because Götze himself gave the all-clear on Sunday evening and wrote in his Instagram stories: “Thank you for the many recovery wishes, I’m fine so far.”
