Because the shirt number 17 at the Boston Celtics is reserved for club legend John Havlicek, who died in 2019, basketball player Dennis Schröder had to look for a new number. And let the fans vote on it.
There were 71, 8, 80, 84 and 96 to choose from. Every football fan from Hanover would have liked to see the 28-year-old, who was born in Braunschweig and sole shareholder of the Bundesliga club Löwen Braunschweig, in the biggest one during his one-year guest appearance City of the US state of Massachusetts with the unloved number on the back. But it did not get to that.
The fans decided to simply reverse the numbers on Schröder’s previous shirt number, which he has been wearing since his youth. For the 71, 48.84 percent of the participants voted, the unloved 96 received 41.76 percent of the votes. Schröder narrowly escaped a colossal own goal.
