Croatian Goalkeeper Gets Special Retirement Send-off From German Football Club

I really didn't feel like doing a sports related addition, but decided to quickly throw this one here because I found it interesting, and cool at the same time.  I've never heard of this football (soccer) player before or the club he plays for.  Nonetheless, it seems the fans of the club really wanted to give him a spectacular last match retirement send-off.  He's not even one of the more well known Croatian football players who play in the higher echelon leagues across Europe.  (I just by chance also found out that fans of the club can even get those soccer club scarfs, cups and pendants with players photos on them, See Here, pretty swanky.  I threw in some kind of highlight vid below the stadium footage.  Anyway, more info at the links.......

*(Thought I'd throw in a sort of related link, about the interesting history of the surname 'Horvat' that probably a lot of people didn't know, and other Croatian surnames Here)



Horvat, Horvat!, Over 10,000 fans chanted his name at the Hallescher FC stadium in the German city of Halle an der Saaleu. Croatian goalkeeper Darko Horvat at the age of 40 has decided to retire from professional football and leave his club which plays in the German 3. Fußball-Liga

Club fans gave him a spectacular farewell. Ovations, posters and a huge banner featuring Horvat  in his Number 13 jersey and the message: "Horvat our goalie."

Darko Horvat played the position of goalie for  Zagorec, Inter, Solin and Rijeka and six years with his current German club Hallescher FC.  See attached video...
