Mexican midfield metronome Marco Fabian may be injured for Eintracht Frankfurt until at least the New Year, but that hasn’t stopped the fan favourite from contributing off the pitch.
Fabian’s homeland was hit by a devastating earthquake last week, in which 355 people lost their lives and more than 6,000 were injured. At least 40 buildings also collapsed around Puebla in the quake, which topped 7.1 on the Richter Scale.
Watch: Fabian grateful to Eintracht Frankfurt and Germany as a whole
Fabian and compatriot Carlos Salcedo have made considerable donations themselves in recent days, and are now asking fans to follow suit, with Fabian taking to the stands ahead of the Eagles’ match against VfB Stuttgart on Saturday.
On Friday, Fabian visited the Eintracht store in the MyZeil shopping centre with goalkeeper Leon Bätge, also asking for donations to the Mexican cause.
Fabian or Salcedo intend to deliver the donations to a charity during their next visit to their homeland.
