Leganés played against Tenerife on April 24th, 2004 at Butarque. It was the 34th matchday of the 2003/04 season and both teams were fighting to remain at Segunda División. Leganés with all the Argentineans was close to be relegated and faced the Chicharreros that had experienced players on their squad such as Djukic, Posse and Barata. It was not the most attractive match to see except for the presence of Robert Enke on Tenerife´s goal.

The German goalkeeper had previously played at Mönchengladbach, Benfica, Barcelona y Fenerbahçe. He arrived at Tenerife where he started to restart his career after some complicated personal situations. The goalkeeper would return to the elite again after that year playing for Hannover 96 and the German National Team. Robert Enke would commit suicide on November 10th, 2009 after some depression episodes, he was 32 years old. His story is told on Ronald Reng’s book “A Life Too Short”.

Leganés will always remember that on April 24th Robert Enke played at Butarque.
