A new hip at 34! The life of a football player can be tough. And what comes next? Christoph Hübner and Gabriele Voss meet three men again whom they have followed since 1998 as part of a long term observation of football talents. “Nachspiel” forms a trilogy with “The Champions” (2003) and “HalfTime” (2010).

Florian Kringe, Heiko Hesse and Mohammed Abdulai were all once regarded as the great hopes of the professional team of Borussia Dortmund. But their careers took very different turns. Kringe had the greatest potential but was set back by many injuries. Hesse soon played only to finance his studies in England and works in Brussels today. Abdulai has a German passport, works as a bus driver and is planning a trip to his native Ghana. They saw sport as a “school of life”. “Nachspiel” also references these three life stories with the rapid developments in contemporary football, where talents are promoted and challenged by high tech.
