Hoffenheim Striker Prince Tagoe To Undergo New Examination

The forward will be examined by a specialist appointed by the DFB...
Hoffenheim attacker Prince Tagoe will undergo another medical examination in the upcoming days. In consultation with the medical commission of the German Football Association (DFB), the German Football League (DFL) appointed a university hospital’s professor to be a neutral evaluator.

1899 Hoffenheim had been urging for three weeks for this next examination to take place and to be performed by a prestigious specialist. However, neither the player's agents nor his lawyer reacted to the club's proposal in any way.

Furthermore, the DFL has straightened out that the surveys exhibited by the player's lawyer will neither be accepted nor the basis of a license to play.

The 22-year-old Tagoe joined Hoffenheim from Al Ittifaq on a free transfer earlier this summer, but the Sinsheim side opted to release the player due to an alleged heart problem only weeks after his arrival.

Tagoe's lawyer then threatened the club with legal action and Hoffenheim eventually decided to hold on to the player until a neutral evaluator has made a decision about his physical condition and his ability to play professional football.
