A 3-1 defeat away against Hoffenheim on the final day of the season saw perennial underdogs Eintracht Braunschweig relegated back down to the 2. Bundesliga after just one season in the German top flight.
However, due to their side’s plucky performances over the course of the year, the Braunschweig fans stayed behind after the final whistle to celebrate and applaud their players like they’d won the league instead!
Indeed, there was even a touching moment when a young girl clambered down onto the pitch in order to give a yellow and blue rose to coach Torsten Lieberknecht as a token of appreciation…
How nice. Beats watching grown men cry.
