🤔 What is he doing? A referee bodyguard and an ex-Schalke put an end to it

Out of sight, out of mind? It is precisely this phenomenon that we want to counteract with our format « What does he do? » and show you every week what one or another old acquaintance in the Bundesliga is up to.

The Austrian has played for three clubs in Germany: he started his career at Bochum in 2008, moved to Mainz in 2010 and only a year later to Gelsenkirchen. With Schalke he played in the premier class and always played a good role at national level. But his best time was yet to come.

After his S04 farewell, Fuchs spectacularly won the English Championship with Leicester City, and later also the FA Cup. In the summer of 2021, he said goodbye to the United States and, as captain, he led newly founded club Charlotte FC into its first season in MLS. Fans immediately took it to heart, only Gareth Bale’s shirt sold more than Fuchs’. He ended his career on Thursday and his club dedicated this beautiful video to him.

In 2020, the Belgian joined second-team TSG Hoffenheim’s Hamburger SV on a free transfer. It’s almost unimaginable today. After a year in the Hanseatic city, Onana left for Lille for seven million euros. And that only lasted him one season.

Frank Lampard really wanted all six, and Everton eventually spent £35m this summer to bring all six to the Premier League. HSV, which had obtained a stake in the resale, also benefited. The Rothosen would again have collected nearly 5.6 million euros.

Onana is now a regular for the Toffees and is 18th in the table. but nothing to laugh about yet. There was an almost pleasant change in the FA Cup on Friday when the Belgian World Championship driver initiated the equalizer at Old Trafford. In the end, however, Manchester United were the favorites – and Onana is likely to be given a new manager in the near future.

As a youngster, he already broke records for Borussia Dortmund, but Şahin could not end his career at his youth club. After a stopover in Bremen, the midfielder found himself in the Turkish Süper Lig in 2020. He was initially planned there as a top player, but the veteran was soon granted promotion.

Şahin has been head coach of Antalyaspor since October 2021 and led the club straight to safe relegation in his first season. Things are going much less well this season but the ex-Dortmunder still made positive headlines.

As his players stormed the referee in anger after the final whistle, Şahin stood protectively in front of the referee and ordered his pros to back off.
