Actually, the Bielefeld team had every reason to be happy after the first win of the season against VfB Stuttgart – had it not been for Patrick Wimmer’s injury-related substitution.

Investigations on Monday now revealed the exact extent of the head injuries. The Arminia announced that the 20-year-old had suffered a concussion, a fracture of the nose bone and a contusion of the midface.
