The question as to whether Bundesliga veteran and Lüdenscheid native Nuri Sahin would continue to lace up after being awarded his first head-coaching job appears to be answered. The 33-year-old told Spanish sports daily Diario AS that he would indeed hang up his boots to focus solely on coaching Fraport TAV Antalyaspor.

The long-term holder of the record as the youngest player ever to appear for a Bundesliga club thus ends a 16-year playing career that included 13 seasons playing in the German top flight. Sahin won both the German league and cup titles whilst playing for Dortmund.
