Advent Calendar Day 01
Say hello to: Mike Hanke!
Mike Hanke (born 5 November 1983 in Hamm) is a German football player who plays the position of striker, with Germany’s Borussia Mönchengladbach.
Hanke made his debut in the 2001–02 season of the German Bundesliga for Schalke 04. He was transferred to VfL Wolfsburg during the 2005–06 season upon request by then Wolfsburg manager Thomas Strunz.
In May 2007, Hanke moved to Hannover 96, and netted eleven league goals, while the side achieved a midtable final position. After three and a half seasons with Hanover, he transferred to Borussia Mönchengladbach.
Mike Hanke is, ironically for being a football player, allergic to lawn. He gets blisters and sore skin from contact with grass.
