He is back!
Two weeks after his corona illness, Vincenzo Grifo (28) made an impressive return against TSG Hoffenheim. Only 13 minutes after being substituted on, the Italian international hammered the important penalty to make it 1-1 (81st).
Grifo to BILD: “I was very happy that I was allowed to come in to help the team and then I wanted to hit the ball with all my might.”
Grifo was in corona quarantine for two weeks: “It was a very long time. I am a person who likes to enjoy the Italian Bella Vita, and if you have to isolate yourself for so long with your wife and child for health reasons, that’s stupid. “
Now, above all, he wants to “stay fit and feel good on the pitch and accelerate”. With the team, however, he still has big goals in view of the slight deficit in seventh place (Conference League): “We still have four games, so we’re in the mood to achieve something. We would surely accept it if we made it to seventh place. ”
