, but did not appear in Brazil.

After positions at

Galatasaray Istanbul

,

VfB Stuttgart

,

SV Darmstadt 98

and

KFC Uerdingen

, things had recently become quieter around Großkreutz.

Again and again the all-rounder made headlines with scandals away from the grass.

amateur area

in the future

.

“Unbelievable, these many moments.

I am incredibly proud to have experienced these moments with you.

It may not have been a picture-book career when I think of the doner kebab throw.

Or the exit in Stuttgart, which was not nice.

Everyone makes mistakes, the most important thing is that you stand by them, ”said Großkreutz in his emotional message.
