International

Unwise Weekend For Wiese And Weis

Bundesliga side Hoffenheim have fined goalkeeper Tim Wiese and midfielder Tobias Weis, after the duo were thrown out of a weekend carnival event for misbehaving.

It has been a turbulent season for Hoffenheim, who are flirting with relegation in 16th place on the Bundesliga log.

Two of their players have been injured in car crashes, and the last thing they needed was for another two seasoned pros to slip up.

Apparently the pair had become rowdy at a public event, and was ejected by some burly security guards.

Neither player has covered himself in glory on the field this season either, with former German international Wiese even dropped from the squad altogether in January.

And so Hoffenheim’s officials have not taken kindly to Wiese and Weis’s weekend antics.

"Generally we understand that players are entitled to a private life and deserve a break from their professional duties," said the club’s general manager Andreas Mueller.

"However, Tobias Weis and Tim Wiese definitely went too far. They have neglected to act as role models and failed to leave a professional impression." 

31-year-old Wiese has publicly apologised for his and Weis’s actions.
