Head coach Ralf Rangnick blew his whistle to end the morning training session and send his men into the changing rooms to get a well deserved break. A quarter of an hour later, the players returned to the pitch wearing their blue-white kits and heading towards the benches, where they would line up and have their team photo taken. The taller guys go to the back, the slightly shorter ones as well as the goalkeepers sat in the front. The coaching staff and caretakers traditionally stood in the middle row. Last but not least, the team mascot Hoffi joined the footballers and the photographers started taking their pictures. Afterwards, individual pictures were also taken, before the players headed off to their lunch break.
The official 1899 Hoffenheim team photo was taken on Friday. Photographers were waiting to get access to the pitch at the training centre in Zuzenhausen in order to take their positions to shoot the official team photograph for the 2010/11 Bundesliga season.
