On Day 14 we cast the spotlight over former 1. FC Kaiserslautern forward Stefan Kuntz.
When Stefan Kuntz ended his playing career in 1999, he did so just one game short of 450 appearances. He nevertheless had plenty to look back on with most of those appearances spread between VfL Bochum 1848 and 1. FC Kaiserslautern, with whom he won the DFB Cup in 1990. He was twice the top-scorer in the Bundesliga too (1985/86 and 1993/94), while he was also named Germany's Footballer of the Year in 1991, five years before he won the European Championship with his country.
- His best year: Kuntz was not only a Bundesliga winner with Lautern in 1990/91, but also was chosen as German Footballer of the Year at the end of the campaign, the first player not to have played for Germany to have done so. His goalscoring feats later secured him a place with Die Nationalmannschaft and he went on to win UEFA EURO 1996 in England.
- His father Günther is the record goalscorer for Borussia Neunkirchen in the Bundesliga.
- Scored all three goals in Bochum's biggest ever Bundesliga win over FC Bayern München (3-0 on 11 October 1985) - Kuntz occupies sixth place in the all-time Bundesliga scoring list with 179 goals.
