Ghana international Ebenezer Ofori watched from the bench as his VfL Stuttgart side suffered a 2-0 defeat on their Bundesliga return on Saturday afternoon.
The Black Stars midfielder was unused throughout the game at the Olympiastadion Berlin.
Ofori was hoping to make his debut on Saturday but manager Hannes Wolf had other ideas as he kept him on the substitute bench.
He will be hoping to make his debut when Stuttgart play Mainz O5 in their next league fixture.
