On day 8, we look back on the decorated career of Bundesliga legend Jupp Heynckes.

Heynckes is perhaps best known as the brains behind FC Bayern München's historic Bundesliga, UEFA Champions League and DFB Cup treble-winning campaign of 2012/13, but it was as a player for Borussia Mönchengladbach during the 1970s that he first shot to fame.

The Mönchengladbach native scored 220 goals in 369 Bundesliga appearances all told, winning multiple titles with his beloved hometown club, as well as representing Hannover 96. Following an equally successful career in the dugout, he retired from football in May 2013. Check out a few more of his milestones...

  • Heynckes scored five times on his final Bundesliga appearance as Gladbach chalked up the highest win in Bundesliga history with a 12-0 rout of Borussia Dortmund.
  • He made 1001 Bundesliga appearances as a player and coach. Only Otto Rehhagel can top that (1003).
  • The Gladbach striker finished as the Bundesliga's top scorer in 1973/74 (level with Gerd Müller) and 1974/75.
