Official Puma TSG Hoffenheim home football shirt from the 2009/10 season.
Condition of this original football jersey is 9/10 – Superb (see photos).
In the 2009–10 season, Hoffenheim improved their squad by signing midfielders Maicosuel and Franco Zuculini, as well as experienced defender Josip Šimunić. Alumnus Hopp expected a position within the top five and a qualification for the UEFA Europa League at the end of the season, and indeed Hoffenheim enjoyed success at the beginning of the season, remaining in the top five for several weeks.
However, the club again suffered from a large number of injuries and suspensions in the second half of the season and only won four of the 17 matches. The club finished in a disappointing 11th place with 42 points and a goal difference of +2. Head coach Ralf Rangnick was criticised in public for the poor results of his team, yet his contract was extended for two more years in May.
On 1 January 2011, Hoffenheim sold Brazilian midfielder Luiz Gustavo to league rivals Bayern Munich for a reported fee of €17 million. Immediately after the transfer had been completed, Rangnick resigned and was replaced by Marco Pezzaiuoli, who had been Rangnick's assistant before. Rangnick had disapproved the transfer in the weeks before since Hoffenheim was in reach of the top five and had reached the quarter-finals of the 2010–11 DFB-Pokal. Like in the previous season, the club finished the 2010–11 season 11th and below expectations.
