Frankfurt / Main - The decommissioned at SC Freiburg Heiko Butscher moves to second division football Eintracht Frankfurt. The 31-year-old has passed the medical check and signed with the Hesse until 2013. The contract of the defender is valid for the Bundesliga and 2nd Bundesliga.
"I am very satisfied that the transfer worked. I had certain requirements regarding the new player, these were met with Heiko Butscher, "Eintracht coach Armin Veh said.
Despite his role as captain and crowd favorite after the disappointing first half of the season, Butscher had been surprisingly scrapped in the acutely relegation-threatened Bundesliga club from Freiburg.
