Yet Wolf was the one who blocked the shot to keep a clean sheet for the leaders of Germany’s second tier. The trouble for him, however, was that he achieved it with a delicate part of his body.
“You always say with your balls but this one I saved with my penis,” the 29-year-old told Bild.
“I never experienced such a free-kick. First the pain was hellish but after some ice and rest it was OK.
“I have worn protection as a youth at Hallenspielen. But you can’t run properly – it’s crap!”
You can’t knock his commitment to Fortuna’s cause.
