Bundesliga club Hanover 96 will play Schalke 04 this Saturday in a special shirt dedicated to the memory of their former captain Robert Enke who committed suicide last week.

The 32-year-old goalkeeper, who was set to travel with the Germany squad to South Africa for next June's World Cup, flung himself under a train on Tuesday, November 10 and was buried last Sunday.

Saturday's game at Schalke 04's Veltins Arena will be Hanover's first league game after the tragedy and the team will play in a special shirt with a small number one in a black circle in the centre of the chest.

The German Football League (DFL) have already approved the special shirt.
