Großkreutz causes a stir in the Oberliga game

The ex-Dortmunder Kevin Großkreutz obviously got the tone wrong in a league game with TuS Bövinghausen, but this probably additionally motivated his opponent Viktoria Clarholz.

Grosskreutz is said to have shouted at the opposing substitute bench during his club’s 4-1 defeat: “Shut up and go to work tomorrow.”

Marc Borgmann, spokesman for TSV Victoria Clarholz, described the incident in one go Facebook-Post and thanked for the “extra boost of motivation”.

Pushing the “substitute bench of the beautiful village of Clarholz” with these words is “great tennis from a German world champion,” added Borgmann. “I don’t want to write more about it because the evening isn’t that long anymore and work is calling tomorrow,” wrote Borgmann, adding laughing emojis. He also said something to Grosskreutz: “Recover well tomorrow from the strenuous 90 minutes today.”

Bövinghausen’s coach Sebastian Tyrala was relaxed about the whole thing. “You don’t have to hold it all that high. You also have to see what Kevin himself gets all the time. It’s almost normal for him to back down on a spell. That’s not necessary, and he doesn’t have to at all , but it has nothing to do with arrogance,” said the ex-professional FuPa.net quoted.

Borgmann himself later smoothed things over. “I hope Kevin doesn’t blame me for the post. We can talk about it over a drink in one of his bars,” he said picture.

Clarholz’ sporting director Frank Scharpenberg saw it similarly: “I like people who show emotions. I don’t want to judge whether that was too much or not. In any case, you shouldn’t put everything on the gold scales, so that’s what we’re after 90 minutes ticked off again.”

2014 World Champion Großkreutz has been playing for TuS Bövinghausen in the Oberliga Westfalen since January 2021. His team is currently second in the table.
