Bayern Munich, the German Bundesliga team, paid tribute to one of its legends on Friday with a special addition to their jerseys.

Former FC Bayern and West German national team defender Franz Beckenbauer passed away on Sunday, January 7. To honor him, Bayern added an inscription that read „DANKE FRANZ“ („THANK YOU FRANZ“) to their jerseys for their home game against TSG Hoffenheim on Friday, January 12. The lettering was printed in red, centrally on the chest between the Adidas logo and the club crest.

In addition, the players had Beckenbauer’s number 5 printed in retro style on the back of their warm-up jerseys and jackets. The mascots that accompanied the players onto the field before the game also wore the number 5 on the back of their jerseys.
