Klaus Gjasula made Bundesliga history during Paderborn's 5-1 thrashing at the hands of Werder Bremen on Saturday.

The midfielder was shown his 17th yellow card of the season for a foul on Josh Sargent in the first half at the Benteler-Arena on Saturday.

Gjasula consequently surpassed the Bundesliga record set by Tomasz Hajto when he was booked 16 times for Duisburg in the 1998-99 season.

Following their defeat to Bremen, Paderborn are guaranteed to finish in the bottom three and sit eight points adrift of the relegation play-off spot with three games remaining.
