🇯🇵 x Bundesliga | Hasebe becomes a Legend

It was a freezy Winter when a young Japanese player joined VfL Wolfsburg. Back then, Makoto Hasebe was a young member of the national team.

He had found his way to Europe through his performances with Urawa Red Diamonds. He was going to join VfL Wolfsburg, but little did he know about the feats he would have achieved.

Three World Cups, all played as the captain. Almost 15 years in Germany, with three different teams. An institution in Japanese football, more than ever.

Makoto Hasebe has done a lot to earn this honour, and indeed he got inducted into the “Bundesliga Legends“. And he was the most important of all, Lothar Matthäus, to introduce him.

For Bundesliga in Japan, we used images provided by DFL to announce his induction into this network. A prestigious one, fully deserved by the Eintracht midfielder.
