As explored by Bundesliga.com, the club have a “strong African connection”, with three internationals currently on the Swabians’ books.
Arthur Boka (pictured) is an Ivorian left-back who has been a key member of the Elephants’ Golden Generation.
Karim Haggui is a Bundesliga veteran, who has also enjoyed time with Strasbourg, in the French league, and has amassed 76 caps for Tunisia.
25-year-old Ibrahima Traore is a left-winger who also had a stint in French football before blossoming in Germany. He has 11 caps for Guinea and was in the Syli Nationale’s squad for the 2010 Cup of Nations.
The three have all made pertinent contributions during the first half of the club’s current Bundesliga campaign. After 17 matches, they sit in 12th place.
