Thomas Helmer is a German former footballer who retired after playing for Sunderland in 2000. He is known as Hemton in PES 2009 and plays as a centre back although, like Beckenbauer and Sammer, he can play as a sweeper if required. Unfortunately he never appeared for Sunderland or Bayern Munich in PES as he retired before the game series began.
