Top 5 German footballers of all time?

Postby Dalv » Mon Jan 16, 2017 3:30 pm

I was having a conversation about this with some friends about this and I realized I have never seen any old German legend playing. Which are the best German players in history in your opinion?

Here's my top 5:
Gerd Muller - Never seen him playing, but scored way to many goals not to put him first
Jurgen Klinsmann
Oliver Kahn
Lothar Matthaus - it's interesting though that Effenberg did say in his book that Matthaus was a chicken, always afraid in the big games
Oliver Bierhoff or Andreas Möller or Klose

A late bloomer and my all time favorite since it was him who triggered my interest in football, but I don't think that he belongs in the general top 5...

1. Gerd Muller : the most important german player in the history
2. Franz Beckenbauer : the most powerful figure in football history
3. Lothar Matthaus : "he is the best rival I've ever had. I guess that's enough to define him" (Maradona)
4. Philipp Lahm : the most consistent and reliable player I've ever seen
5. Andreas Moller : for this (among other things)

I used to like Koepke, Matthaus and Hassler a lot as well.

It's his famous celebration after the Euro 96 penalty shoot-out at which he enraged a generation of Englishmen by aping Gascoigne's muscleman celebration on scoring the decisive kick.

Effenberg no.1? He's my favorite Bayern player but I dont see how he can make that spot.

If I had make my own top 5 list I would repeat names above my post. But I think we should mention Uwe Seeler, Pierre Littbarski, Toni Schumacher, Günter Nezter, Fritz Walter, Helmut Rahn, Karl Heinz Rummenige or Sepp Maier 8)
1974, 1975, 1976, 2001, 2013, 2017?
