Former Germany star Christoph Metzelder criticises Hoffenheim over the treatment of some of the players.

Former Germany defender Christoph Metzelder has criticised Hoffenheim over the treatment of some of their players.

Manager Markus Gisdol has over-hauled his squad after narrowly missing out on relegation last season.

He has told a number of high-profile players, including international goalkeeper Tim Wiese, that they are surplus to requirements.

"This is a question of law and morality," Metzelder told Sky.

"When two sides sign a contract, you have to stick up for it."

Hoffenheim drew 2-2 with Nuremburg yesterday, on the opening day of the Bundesliga.
