A sad newz for Football lovers.
German and Former Bayern Munich Goalkeeper Oliver Kahn has called it quits! Yes, he has retired from the game on Tuesday.
He played his last match for Bayern Munich against Hertha BSC Berlin in the German first division Bundesliga football match.
Oliver, 39, has made 557 appearances in the Bundesliga for Dortmund and Bayern. He has won eight league titles with Bayern. Associated with the club, he also showed its way to win the Champions League in 2001.
He was voted player of the tournament at the 2002 World Cup for his wonderful show.
Minutes after his last match he said "Tonight was very moving for me, perhaps the most moving moment of my career. I was under pressure my whole career whereas now I just had the joy of being out there in this stadium and before these fans one last time."
In the top image, he waves at the crowd before his last appearance. :(
I can assure, everybody loves to watch him play. One of the greatest Goalie in the history of football has retired now.
We gotta take comfort from the saying "When one door closes, the other will open!"
So, lets cheer up and bid a happy adieu to him.
