Bundesliga 2 Players Sent Off After Four Minutes Of Restart

SV Sandhausen defender made his own bit of unwanted history by becoming the first player to get sent off after German football returned, lasting just four minutes.

Football fans across Europe have been extremely excited about the return of the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 this weekend, with German football the first major country to return to action since the Covid-19 outbreak.

Diekmeier's personal return though didn't go according to plan at all and the 30-year-old lasted less than five minutes before he received his marching orders for a professional foul in the box, with Erzgebirge Aue going 1-0 up from the spot, thanks to Dimitrij Nazarov's penalty.

Sandhausen were promoted to the second tier of German football for the first time in 2012 but they are currently just four points clear of the relegation play-off place.

The last thing they need is players getting sent off after just four minutes of a game.

We've all been very excited for the return of football but it seems Diekmeier was a little too excited for his own good.
