Either way, sad to see him go. Just read up on his story on the BBC a few minutes ago, I feel awful for his wife!
Yep, he played for a good number of clubs, Barcelona included. He was pretty much Germany's number 1 for the past few years and had a good chance of keeping the position for the World Cup (although they do have good young keepers like Neuer, Adler etc..)
It's really sad for his wife as you say, they had only recently adopted a baby after a child they had died on them a few years ago.
