Gerd Zewe (born June 13, 1950 in Stennweilermarker, West Germanymarker) is a former Germanmarker football player and manager.

Gerd Zewe was a youngster for SV Stennweiler and an amateur for Borussia Neunkirchen. Starting his career with his sole professional club, Fortuna D├╝sseldorf, in midfield, he was later used as sweeper and appeared in 440 Bundesliga matches (42 goals), which is still a Bundesliga record for the club. Zewe was part of the D├╝sseldorf team that reached the German Cup final on three consecutive occasions from 1978 to 1980, carrying the trophy home in 1979 and 1980. In 1979 he further won a European Cup Winners' Cup runner-up medal with D├╝sseldorf, getting beaten after extra-time by FC Barcelona at St. Jakob Stadiummarker, Baselmarker. In 1987 he left Fortuna D├╝sseldorf after 15 years to team up with Kickers W├╝rzburg to see out his career on amateur level.

Zewe's career for West Germany lasted for only four matches, but earned him a role of an unused substitute at the 1978 FIFA World Cup as one of two uncapped players in the West German squad besides 1. FC K├Âln's Harald Konopka. Months after the tournament he gained his first cap, playing in the 4-3 win over Czechoslovakia on October 11, 1978. Four months later his career for West Germany came to a close with a starting role in the goalless 1980 UEFA European Championship qualifier against Malta in Maltamarker.

As manager, Gerd Zewe coached the reserve-side of Borussia M├Ânchengladbach for some time in the 1990s, as well as the first squads of lower level clubs Union Solingen and TuS Grevenbroich.
