Hesse: Frankfurt's "football god" Alex Meier receives farewell game

Frankfurt / Main (dpa / lhe) - Eintracht Frankfurt's "football god" Alexander Meier receives a farewell game more than two and a half years after the end of his career. On August 31 (7 p.m.) the 39-year-old, who scored 137 goals in 379 games for the Hessians, will officially say goodbye in the Frankfurt Arena. "I'm incredibly proud to have worn the eagle on my chest for 14 years. I'm infinitely grateful to Eintracht and their fans. This day should be a single celebration and I'm happy about everyone who celebrates it with me," said Meyer on Wednesday.

The ex-captains David Abraham and Ioannis Amanatidis, the legends Anthony Yeboah and Uwe Bein and the Europa League winners Sebastian Rode, Kevin Trapp and Martin Hinteregger have announced themselves. Both teams are coached on the sidelines by former Eintracht coaches Armin Veh and Friedhelm Funkel.

"The name Alexander Meier is a synonym for the attributes of Eintracht Frankfurt. Loyalty in good times and bad, a high awareness of tradition and giving everything for the success of the club - Alex shaped the era of the 2000s and 2010s like no other . As the top scorer and DFB Cup winner, he is an integral part of Eintracht history," Frankfurt spokesman Axel Hellmann paid tribute to the former scorer and announced: "With the farewell game, which can only take place now due to the pandemic, we want to celebrate a big Eintracht family day ."
