Zimbabwe's TSG Hoffenheim striker Knowledge Musona says he is not happy at the German Bundesliga club

The 22-year-old is frustrated by his lack of game time which prompted Hoffenheim to loan him out to Augsburg where he again failed to play regularly last season.

Speaking to Zimbabwean radio station Star FM, Musona said he feels he is not valued in Germany.

“I am not happy with what is going on in Germany. Things have not gone according to plan and as a player you always get frustrated when you are not getting involved as much as you would have wanted,” Musona said.

“Honestly, I have been working hard to improve my game, but it seems all my efforts are not appreciated. That puts you off when things like that happen, because I still want to play in Germany.”

Naturally a center forward, he has been used as a winger at Augsburg and is worried about his Hoffenheim future.

Musona's contract runs until June 2016 having arrived at the club from Kaizer Chiefs in July 2011.

“I am not comfortable playing as a winger and that is why I am struggling to score. My best comes out when I play as a centre striker. I know I can score goals from that position. Right now I don’t know if I am going to return to Hoffenheim. I will just wait to hear from them,” he said.

Musona made 16 league appearances for Hoffenheim in the 2011/12 season in which he just started twice and scored only in the German Cup second round 2-1 win over Cologne.

He also had just one goal in Augsburg colours again in the German Cup opening round 2-0 victory  against fourth-tier side SV Wilhelmshaven.

He had no league goal for Augsburg in 14 matches, where he started on eight occasions.  

Both Hoffenheim and Augsburg were struggling for the better part of last season with the former having to secure top-flight football status via relegation playoffs, while the latter survived demotion on the last day of the season.

Hoffenheim posted a 5-2 aggregate scoreline win over Kaiserslautern to ensure their stay in the Bundesliga with respective 3-1 and 2-1 home and away victories.
