Aaron Hunt scored a second-half brace in a 2-0 victory over Hertha Berlin to bring an emotional end to a 13-year association with Werder Bremen.
The 27-year-old midfielder confirmed he will leave for pastures new at the end of the season, but he left Bremen fans with one final memory in their final home match, netting just after the break and in the final moments of this Bundesliga clash.
In a game of little significance to the table, Bremen tested Thomas Kraft for the first time after 23 minutes, but Zlatko Junuzovic's 20-yard piledriver was punched clear by the Hertha goalkeeper.
Just three minutes after the interval, Bremen found the opener with some lovely build-up play between Franco Di Santo and Hunt allowing the experienced midfielder the space to slot past Kraft.
And the Germany international added his second with a last-gasp effort handing Werder a 2-0 win at the death.
Despite finishing comfortably in mid-table, Hertha Berlin lie bottom of the form table for the second half of the season.
Their only chance of the game came after 59 minutes when Raphael Wolf gathered from Ronny's free-kick.
Bremen had secured their safety in the Bundesliga with a few weeks to spare, but the home fans paid tribute to Hunt, who is the longest-serving player at the club.
