Bobby Wood’s recent red card has earned the Hamburg forward a lengthy ban.
The DFB announced on Tuesday that Wood has been suspended three games for violent conduct after elbowing Cologne defender Dominique Heintz. Wood has 24 hours to file an appeal with the federation.
As a result, Wood is set to miss clashes with Borussia Dortmund, Hoffenheim and Werder Bremen.
Wood has scored Hamburg’s only two goals this season. However, his dismissal earned the ire of Hamburg coach Markus Gisdol, who called the elbow “inexcusable”.
What do you think of the suspension? Does the punishment match the offense?
