Hannover 96 to hold testimonial for Steve Cherundolo's farewell
Former U.S. men's national team player Steve Cherundolo will officially end his professional career on Sunday with an All-Star testimonial match staged by his longtime team, Hannover 96.
The match will feature the ‘96 All Stars’ against the ‘Hannover All Stars’ at the HDI-Arena in Hanover, Germany.
Cherundolo's last competitive match was in December 2013 before he announced his retirement in March due to persistent knee problems.
“It’s a great opportunity for all the fans, Hannover 96 and the city of Hanover to celebrate as a whole,” said Cherundolo, of Sunday's event.
The 35-year-old spent more than 15 years with Hannover and played for the U.S. World Cup team in 2006 and 2010.
Cherundolo is currently an assistant manager for Hannover 96's Under-23 team.
