Day nine sees us look back at the career of FC Bayern München and Bundesliga legend Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
Scoring goals and securing titles were second nature to Karl-Heinz 'Kalle' Rummenigge. In both the 1979/80 and 1980/81 campaigns, his goals not only earned him the revered Torjägerkanone as the Bundesliga's top-scorer, with 26 and 29 strikes respectively, it helped him get his hands on what would end up being his only two German league titles. He won the DFB Cup twice too, while he was twice voted the World Footballer of the Year. And to prove that all the good things come in twos, Rummenigge also lifted the European Cup twice with Bayern, in back-to-back seasons in 1975 and 1976.
- Only Gerd Müller (seven) lifted the Torjägerkanone more times than Rummenigge did (three).
- Rummenigge was the youngest captain of the Germany national team in a FIFA World Cup final, back in 1982 at the age of 26.
- As a four-year old, he had to pay 20 Pfennigs (former German currency) to be able to play football with his neighbour's child in Lippstadt.
