Game Changer: Hoffenheim and Croatia's Andrej Kramaric

Though he only arrived on loan from Premier League title frontrunners Leicester City FC in January, Andrej Kramaric proved a key figure in TSG 1899 Hoffenheim's renaissance, playing a central role in their remarkable - and ultimately successful - survival battle.

Kramaric, who turns 25 on 19 June, had a major impact on the Sinsheim club, flourishing under the tutelage of coach Julian Nagelsmann to help his side retain their top-flight status when they had looked all but condemned to the drop at the winter break.
