Former Bayern Munich and German goalkeeper Oliver Kahn has taken his place in the Hall of Fame of German football.
The legendary goalkeeper was already one of ten new members of the team in the German Football Museum in 2019, but the official presentation was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking during the presentation ceremony, the current member of FC Bayern said;
“When I started playing football as a little boy on a pitch next to the Karlsruhe Wildparkstadion, it was always my biggest wish to be able to play in the neighbouring big stadium one day. I never thought I’d end up being commemorated in a special way at the German Football Museum,” said Kahn.
Kahn won numerous titles during his playing days, including eight Bundesliga titles, six DFB Cup, the Europa Cup, the Champions League, and the international cup.
He also collected a number of personal awards including the German Footballer of the Year (2000 & 2001) and was named the Best Player at the 2002 World Cup.
Sepp Maier, Franz Beckenbauer, Paul Breitner, Andreas Brehme and Lothar Matthäus, Michael Ballack and Jürgen Klinsmann are some of the other players on the list.
