"Ailton, oho! Ailton, ohohoho!", the Werder fans will sing with full fervor one last time on Saturday. The arena in Bremen has been sold out for weeks. The now 41-year-old Brazilian has become a living Werder legend and will now be honored with a farewell game and certainly many noble speeches. And it doesn’t take much imagination to picture the vocabulary from which the farewell speakers will draw.
