But gaffer, it's too cold outside

Two of Stuttgart's players were excused from their midweek cup clash with Bayern Munich because it was too cold.

After returning from the Africa Cup of Nations, Ibrahima Traore and Mamadou Bah "have to get used to the cold temperatures first" before they can play again. Traore says the cold was "a real shock" after his return from Gabon following Guinea's exit. The difference in temperature between the countries is almost 40 degrees Celsius.
