Karl-Heinz "Kalle" Rummenigge (born 25 September 1955 in Lippstadtmarker) is a Germanmarker former football player.

He had his greatest career success with German club Bayern Munich, where he won the Intercontinental Cup, the European Cup, as well as two league titles and two domestic cups.

A member of the German national team, Rummenigge won the 1980 European Championship and was part of the squad that finished runner-up in the 1982 FIFA World Cup and at the 1986 World Cup. He was also honoured twice as European Footballer of the Year.

He is currently the chairman of the Bundesliga team Bayern Munich, as well as being the acting chairman of the European Club Association.

Career as player

Club

Rummenigge was born in Lippstadtmarker, North Rhine-Westphaliamarker.

He joined Bayern Munich in 1974, coming from the Westphalian amateur side Borussia Lippstadt, for a transfer fee of ca. € 10,000. He immediately showed great strength as a dribbler. His striking qualities were initially insignificant, but would find great improvement in later years, particularly after the arrival of coach Pal Csernai in 1979. In 1979–80 he scored 26 goals and became for the first time the Bundesliga's top striker, a feat he could repeat in 1981 and 1984 with 29 and 26 goals, respectively.

With Bayern he won in 1975 and 1976 the European Cup of Champions. In 1975 he did not take part in the final of the competition, whilst in the year thereafter a glass of brandy sufficiently prepared the nervous Rummenigge to contribute to the defeat of AS Saint-Etienne. In the same year he became also part of the team that prevailed in the Intercontinental Cup finals against Cruzeiro EC from Belo Horizontemarker.

In the era of coach Csernai he found in midfielder Paul Breitner a congenial partner and he formed such a formidable one-two-punch that they were only called Breitnigge (name invented by German newspaper Bild).

The club, then often dubbed as “FC Breitnigge”, won in this period the German championships of 1980 and 1981, and the German Cup in 1982 und 1984. A renewed triumph in the European Champions Cup was denied, when the club lost the 1982 final narrowly against Aston Villa. In the season before Rummenigge was top-scorer in this competition with 6 goals.

His substantial contribution to the successes of the club and the German national football team found also expression in personal honours. In 1980 he was named German Footballer of the Year and in '80-81 the European Footballer of the Year. In this period he was also a serious rival for Diego Maradona for the unofficial honour of being the best player of the world.

In 1984, aged 29, he was sold for a record fee of € 5.7m to Internazionale. Despite a notable beginning, in which he helped the team to compete until the end for the 1984–1985 scudetto, Rumenigge's career in Italy was mostly marred by injury problems so he returned to Germany to play for his old team Bayern Munich. At the end of his contract in 1988 Rummenigge moved on to Swiss first division club Servette FC in Geneva, where he saw his career out. In his last season, 1988–89 he had his last success, becoming top scorer in the Swiss league with 24 goals.

National team

With the German national football team he took part in the 1978 FIFA World Cup, 1982 FIFA World Cup and 1986 FIFA World Cup. In 1978 Germany exited in the first knock-out stage of the tournament. In 1982 and 1986 the team was runner-up behind Italy and Argentina.

Rummenigge also took part in two European Championship tournaments. In the 1980 competition in Italy Germany defeated Belgium in the final by 2-1 and won the trophy. The 1984 tournament is engraved as one of the most unsuccessful undertakings of the German national team. Germany was already ousted in the group stage.

Altogether, between 1976 and 1986, Rummenigge amassed 95 caps and scored 45 goals for the German national team, including one in the 1986 FIFA World Cup Final.

Football management

From 1990 until 1994 Rummenigge worked as a TV co-commentator for matches of the German national team. In autumn 1991, Bayern Munich invited Franz Beckenbauer and Rummenigge to return to the club as vice presidents. Rummenigge held this position until 2002, when he was appointed Chairman of Executive Board of the newly corporatised football department of the club. According to the club, “in his role as chairman he is responsible for external relations, new media, board affairs and representing the holding company on national and international bodies.”

Miscellaneous

In April 1983, the British pop duo Alan & Denise recorded a tribute song about his "sexy knees" in the song "Rummenigge, what a man". The record reached number 43 in German charts.

In March 2004 he was named by Pelé as one of the top 125 greatest living footballers.

His brother Michael Rummenigge was also a noteworthy footballer. He played as forward for Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund from 1982–88 and 1988–94, respectively. He also represented Germany on two occasions between 1983 and 1986.
