Of course, Sebastian Hoeneß was about to take a few seconds from the clock for a few more seconds when he changed in Cologne on Sunday evening in Cologne in the second minute of the exam time Kasim Adams. But at least. Finally, the 39-year-old could have helped defensive players Justin Che to a short debut in the Bundesliga. But Hoeneß brought Adams. For the 26-year-old, this was his arg late saison debut and the first commitment for the TSG for almost a year. Most recently, the Ghanaer had stood on the 0: 2 in Stuttgart in the Bundesliga on March 14, 2021. Since then, Adams has been regarded as a sales candidate without perspective in Hoffenheim.

Mit dem Geldschein in der Hand...!

The short presence in Cologne should do not change in principle. Finally, Hoeneß ‘alternatives according to the failures of Chris Richards (Fußprellung), Harvard Nordtveit (torrent) and Benjamin Hübner (Covid-19) and the not yet fully resilient Kevin Vogt (after crimping) were quite limited. For Adams, it’s still a tiny light spot and a bit of balm for the suffering player soul. A shimmer of hope. And be it only to be recruited on the transfer market again. Most recently, neither in the summer of 2020 nor in the transition period in the past winter showed a suitable alternative for the central defender. Although Hoffenheim had placed him in the front of the shop window.

In the summer of 2018 Hoffenheim Adams had brought Young Boys Bern. There, the defender had become a regular player under coach Adi Hütter Swiss Master, the TSG had invested 8.5 million euros. Adams has long since turned out to be a shortcut. Never, the bombatous athlete was able to meet expectations constant, again and again, injuries or light skills again threw it up and next to the square. For a season, the TSG had already been borrowed at Fortuna Düsseldorf (2019/20). On Sunday, Adams in his third season in the Kraichgau just recorded his 26th Bundesliga commitment. It may be doubted that there is still a significant number. At least not for Hoffenheim. Adam’s contract is still running until 2023.
