Turin 2009: Butt becomes the first FCB goalkeeper to score i

Jörg Butt's "game of my life"

"As a goalkeeper, my performance in goal was always the most important thing to me. But in this game I was able to also help my team at the other end of the pitch. We were only fourth in the Bundesliga, our coach Louis van Gaal was under a lot of pressure and in the last group match of the Champions League we travelled to face Juventus. We had to win at all costs if we were to reach the last 16."

A team with character

Cohesion was a great strength of this FCB side. Even though things did not always go well in the 2009/10 season, the team stuck together and achieved great success at the end.

Keeper Butt equalises

Full concentration and buried. Jörg Butt left Gigi Buffon without a chance and converted to make it 1-1.

"At my previous clubs, I had already taken on responsibilities when no one else felt confident enough. When I stood over the ball, I didn't know which way I was going to go. I went based on the reaction of the goalkeeper. Gigi Buffon dived right and I went the other way.1-1. Ivica Olic then took the lead after the break. And at that point we were in control."

Win against Juve the turning point

A successful season: On 9 May 2010, Jörg Butt celebrated the league title with FC Bayern fans at Munich's Marienplatz. One week later, the side also won the DFB Cup. In the Champions League, Bayern missed out on a famous treble after losing against Inter Milan in the final.
