SBU veteran feels “very good”

    Eintracht Frankfurt’s veteran Makoto Hasebe is thinking about continuing his career shortly before his 39th birthday. “Right now I’m feeling very good, but I don’t know what’s going to happen in January and February. If I don’t feel good anymore, I’ll stop. I’ll decide in March,” said the Japanese (quoted via “table football“) on Thursday at the SBU training camp in Dubai.

    Last February, the originally expiring working paper was extended to 2027. Another season as a player was planned before Hasebe would become part of the coaching staff. He has now received “a clear signal” from the club that he could be in the Europa League winner’s squad for another year. “You can’t buy something like that, it’s not about the money,” he said. It was “an honor” for him. On January 18 he will be 39 years old, if he continues another season he can trump Uli Stein as the oldest Eintracht professional in the Bundesliga: The former Germany goalkeeper was 39 years and 168 days old in his last game. The oldest player in league history was Schalke’s Klaus Fichtel at 43 years and 183 days.

    He “never thought” that Hasebe would still be on the pitch at his age. He has played nine games this season, but missed half of the first half of the season due to a knee ligament injury. “First I have to show my quality on the pitch again, then we’ll see what’s next,” he said of a possible comeback. He always wanted to play, but he wasn’t upset if he wasn’t in the starting XI. Hasebe switched from 1. FC Nürnberg to SGE on a free transfer in 2014 at the age of 30, where he is the longest-serving professional in the squad together with Timothy Chandler (32).
