Amin Younes scored a dream goal in Saturday’s top game between Eintracht Frankfurt and FC Bayern Munich, which he then used to help a special gesture by the victims of the Hanau attack on February 19, 2020 to commemorate.
Younes was cleared by Daichi Kamada after half an hour in Bayern’s sixteen and flicked the ball into the right angle from the half-left position. It was the 2-0 Frankfurt in the top game against the leaders from Munich.
After his goal, the 27-year-old five-time German national player turned away, ran to the sideline and had one of the warm-up shirts that the Eintracht players wore before the game in memory of the victims of the Hanau attack.
The likenesses of the nine Hanau fatalities were printed on the shirts with the inscription SaiyheirNames. Younes held up a shirt with Fatih Saracoglu’s face on it. “That doesn’t bring the victims back. But the family members should know that we are thinking of them. That’s what Frankfurt stands for. That the city holds together and is a symbol for the people,” said Younes after the game.
Saracoglu, Ferhat Unvar, Said Nesar Hashemi, Hamza Kurtovic, Vili Viorel Paun, Mercedes Kierpacz, Kaloyan Velkov, Sedat Gürbüz and Gökhan Gültekin were shot by a racist at two different crime scenes in Hanau on the evening of February 19 last year.
“It was important to us: We didn’t just want to show death or statistics, but rather young people who were brutally murdered. That’s why Say The irNames says the names, keeps the names and above all shows the picture of these young people,” said Eintracht -President Peter Fischer regarding the campaign: “We want to remember that, that means not to forget. And not to forget means never to happen again.”

Furthermore, Fischer explained that Eintracht “will defend itself very, very clearly against racism, against hatred, anti-Semitism and also against homophobia”: “We have it in our statutes and we live it that way.”
Not only the Eintracht professionals remembered the victims of Hanau on this Bundesliga match day. On Friday, VfL Wolfsburg did not share its starting grid via Twitter as usual, but a black picture with the names of the nine victims. “
The se names are more important today than our starting grid,” said the Wolfsburg-based company.
