Arminia Bielefeld without Fabian Klos \ – This is not only for die-hard fans of the Bundesliga club, but generally difficult for many viewers. After this season, however, it becomes reality. The farewell announced by the 34-year-old himself for this summer means a large taest in the history of the East Westphalia.

Perhaps that is above all the fact that the long-standing captain and cult striker presented an unprecedented constant, in a club history, which could have been hardly even more thoroughly changing over ten years during his presence.

Proud 162 mandatory gates for the heart club DSC

In the relegation champion of the 3rd league, the players emerged by Lower Saxon SV in 2011 at Arminia hosted, shot them back to the 2nd league with his goals soon. The relegation drama against Darmstadt 98 in 2014 with the associated, renewed descent into the third class could soon be able to end an end to his era in Bielefeld – there was enough interest in the true attacker. Klos but signaled immediately to repair the damage himself. That succeeded bravely. In the currently now 383 competitive games, he achieved for the DSC, who became the club of his heart, in all three highest leagues and in the cup proud 162 competitive gates – among a variety of coaches and sometimes most difficult conditions in the multiple shortly before the insolvency club.

But not only the impressive balance sheet, but the rousing occurrence of the strong 1.95 meter man caused an exceptionally close connection with the audience. The identification with the city and the city was and is great, the place in the hierarchy of the squad far above – even though insiders have always reported on the “two faces” of the success hungry and thus not always simple colleagues in dealing.

A difficult spot

That made it difficult for those responsible: In order to get a flowing transition for a time after Klos, they had to invest in the future without dismantling a living monument. This was achieved in the past summer with an extension of cooperation by a single year, combined with the partial withdrawal of the captain amps at co-team leaders Manuel Prietl and with the clear agreement, in the team of young recovers as well as the Kiel obliged Janni Serra step for Step into the large footsteps of “number 9” to be kicked. To give others, if they can take care of the water athletic, be no problem for him, Klos himself has always emphasized. His importance in the bid, even as a man on the bench, who can still influence games in the decide phase, has always highlighted coach Frank Kramer.

Fabian Klos is not “someone” in Bielefeld. Before it possibly came to a tormenting process around its expiring contract in the summer, he now moves out of its own drive the final stroke under a large chapter of its extraordinary career. In addition, of course, before he runs danger, sporty only “someone” in place. There most recently indicated that even a man of his format – but also pure his age – biodegrades biodegrading. What else in a scorer with this instinct does not mean that he does not achieve one or the other important goal for “his” Arminia in the remaining games.
