The final home appearance of a club icon
A script that only football can write: On a Sunday afternoon in May, club captain, leader and icon Steffen Hofmann stood for the last time on the hallowed Hütteldorf turf. After a career spanning 16 years and 540 competitive appearances, our number 11 called time on his playing days, but not without one last parting celebration; firstly on the pitch, secondly with the fans in the stands who stayed on to honour the departing Fußballgott.
It wasn't just that he scored in the 72nd minute to make the score 4:1, it was also the atmosphere generated by the fans, celebrating the glittering career of a club legend that made the afternoon a season highlight. A worthy send off for a very special player.
How did Steffen's final day as a player look? Here we have captured some of the best moments for you.
