Vincenzo Grifo has left Borussia after a year at the club. The 25-year-old midfielder moves to TSG 1899 Hoffenheim.
Grifo joined Die Fohlen from SC Freiburg last summer and made 18 competitive appearances last season – 17 in the Bundesliga and one in the DFB-Pokal. Grifo picked up a knee injury during last summer’s preparations and missed the first six league games of the season and was subsequently rotated between the bench and the starting line-up. Grifo made nine starts and was brought on from the bench eight times. He scored once and made four assists for the Fohlenelf. “We wish Vincenzo Grifo all the best for the future and the best of luck at Hoffenheim,” says Borussia sporting director Max Eberl.
