Diego storms out after being omitted from Wolfsburg squad for Hoffenheim clash

The midfielder had been struggling with a muscle injury, but was still angered at being omitted from the Wolfsburg squad for Saturday's crucial relegation clash
Wolfsburg star Diego has stormed out of a team meeting risking the wrath of coach Felix Magath, after learning that he would not form part of the side to face Hoffenheim on Saturday.

The midfielder had been struggling with a muscle complaint in the run-up to the game, and had not trained for two days. He had high hopes of being included, but Magath confirmed he was not picked for the squad, and he walked out of the pre-match meeting.

"Diego had gone two days without training, and the chance to shine is falling to [Thomas] Kahlenberg. It is true, Diego left the meeting after he saw he was not in the team today," the trainer stated to reporters shortly before kick-off, while also letting slip his annoyance with the temperamental playmaker.

"Diego has demonstrated with his behaviour just how much he wants to be in the team," he fired.

Wolfsburg are currently just one point ahead of Eintracht Frankfurt in the relegation fight, and need a win away to Hoffenheim to ensure their continuity in the top division.
