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."
