Uli Hoeness has developed a reputation for being thick-skinned, but not even the Bayern Munich general manager could hold back the tears on Saturday as Mehmet Scholl played his final game for the Bundesliga giants.

In an era of players moving from one team to the next, Scholl remained loyal to Bayern Munich for 15 seasons, winning a record eight Bundesliga titles, the 2001 Champions League, the 1996 UEFA Cup as well as five German Cups.

"A generation of players are leaving now," Hoeness said after Scholl´s final game, a 5-2 victory over Mainz. "Last year it was Bixente Lizarazu, and today it´s Mehmet and Brazzo (Hasan Salihamidzic, who will play next season for Juventus after nine years with Bayern). You reflect and realise that some good times are over."
