The gap to Dortmund and Leverkusen is just three points. Five match days ago, the distance to the relegation place was smaller than that to place four …
With Huggel, Streller and Co at FCB
And yet there are tears. Not only the joy of the successful return of Luka Jovic, who scored Eintracht with a brace to win against Schalke. Also of farewell. Because the captain is disembarking. And that is an old friend in Switzerland: David Abraham (34). From 2009 to 2012 he won three championship trophies and two cup trophies with FCB. As a defense chief, he was at the beginning of the phase of national invincibility, which ended with seven titles in a row! It is the time of Frei, Streller, Huggel, Stocker, Shaqiri, Chipperfield and Co.
And now it’s over. After the 3: 1 against the miners, the jersey was swapped with referee Gräfe. And then the (professional) soccer shoes go on the nail. Something that Abraham wanted to do in the summer – despite the contract until the end of the season. «Because of the difficult time with the virus, it was best to stay in Frankfurt until winter. So that Eintracht had enough time to find a successor, ”says Abraham. But then at the latest the desire to be back with his son, who lives in Argentina, was stronger than the thought of Europe or even the Champions League. Hütter couldn’t change his mind either. “
The re is no substitute for seeing your child grow up,” said Abraham. And that’s why his next club is called Club Atletico Huracan de Chabas. On Transfermarkt you won’t even find the league level of the amateur club from David’s birthplace Chabas (6871 inhabitants) in the province of Santa Fe. Abraham helps: “In Germany the league would correspond to the ninth or tenth division …”
Its fat headlines
The last two and a half years was the Gaucho Captain of the SGE. But he made the big headlines with the body check against Freiburg’s iconic coach Christian Streich in November 2019, which is completely untypical for a meek person. Sure: Abraham was banned for six games. But by then the two had long since laughed at the episode. If you look at them today, the whole thing looks rather weird indeed.
In a video message, the man from Baden said goodbye to the SGE captain: “We managed one story very well. I’m glad it turned out that way. I wish you all the best on your future path in life. Hasta luego. “
Snatched from Basel
And Streich also says that FCB snatched away the Argentinian Freiburg: “David, you have been in our books for a long time. Even before you went to FC Basel. Unfortunately we didn’t get you. You were probably too expensive. “
Adi Hütter’s farewell gift to his team captain cost nothing: a big kiss on the cheek.
