Enke, Cherundolo, Asamoah: Three of the Best Players in Hannover 96 History

Despite recent troubles in the field, Hannover 96 remains one of the most iconic clubs in Bundesliga history. Over the years, the team has garnered a list of records in football, winning two German championships and one DFB-Pokal.

This feat, of course, would not be possible without the team’s amazing players, who throughout the years have elevated the name of the team in various football competitions, in and outside of Germany. In celebration of their success, I have rounded three of the best players in Hannover 96 history:

Robert Enke. Perhaps the best goalkeeper the team has ever had, Robert’s legacy will remain forever. Before his death, he was widely regarded as the next leading contender for the German number one spot at the 2010 World Cup. Throughout his career, he has won eight full international caps for the German national team.

Steve Cherundolo. Based on his performance, I can honestly say that Steve was the best defender the Hannover 96 ever had. Although an American export, Steve was loyal to his team, serving as a defender and captain in his entire club career. According to ESPN, Cherundolo has won 87 caps for the U.S. men’s national team since earning his in 1999.

Gerald Asamoah. Known for his “pace and strength,” Asamoah proved success after becoming the first African-born player to represent Germany in the World Cup in 2002. Since his retirement, he has made 77 goals in 436 appearances in the field.

The presence of these great players only proves Hannover’s competitiveness in field. Now that Cherundolo’s back as a coach, here’s hoping that the team will soon redeem.
