Stuttgart defender Kevin Grosskreutz was taken to hospital on Monday with a head wound sustained after being attacked while on a night out.

A laceration sustained after trouble with another group of three to five revellers required immediate medical attention.

The offenders were caught by the police some time later, but Grosskreutz was nursing a wound by then after taking a blow to the head.

A statement realised by Stuttgart on the club’s official website reads: “Kevin Grosskreutz was, according to our current knowledge, involved in a physical conflict in the night from Monday to Tuesday and taken to a hospital in Stuttgart.

“Kevin Grosskreutz is doing well in the circumstances.
