Summer exit for a club legend
Last home gamefor Nikolce Noveski
Saturday’s game against 1. FC Köln will be Nikolce Noveski‘slast appearance in front of the 1. FSV Mainz 05 home faithful. The36-year-old is calling time on his career in Mainz come the end of the season. The defender has played in 253 Bundesliga games and 60 inthe 2. Bundesliga for Mainz, made 23 appearances in the DFB Cup, ten inEuropean Cup competitions and has won 64 caps for Macedonia. Nikolce Noveski isMainz’s all-time record appearance holder in the Bundesliga and has been acentral figure in Mainz’s success since the turn of the century.
His summer exit had been foreseen but now that the moment isdrawing near, a sense of melancholy at his departure sets in. He will takesome fond memories from his eleven years at Mainz with him: two promotions,featured in three Europa League campaigns, the move to the Coface Arena. He canlook back on his time with the 05ers with real pride as no other player hasleft such a mark on the club’s sporting development and history. Thank you,Nikolce!
