La Liga’s 10 best German players
- Toni Kroos: Kroos’ accuracy and game awareness have been instrumental in Real’s three consecutive UEFA Champions League wins. He is arguably one of the greatest German players ever lived.
- Marc Andre Ter Stegen: Ter Stegen was Barcelona’s first-choice ‘keeper for the successful Copa del Rey and Champions League campaigns in his debut season. He has now firmly established as the club’s No.1.
- Mesut Ozil: Özil brought consistent passing and numerous assists for teammates during his four seasons with Real Madrid.
- Gunter Netzer: Gunter was an exceptional passer and midfield creator. He struggled in his debut season at Madrid before showing his true capabilities when compatriot Paul Breitner joined him in midfield.
- Bernd Schuster: Bernd was a midfield maverick. He was a gifted passer and playmaker with a volcanic temper. He brought talent and tension to midfields in equal measure.
- Uli Stielike: Uli was a hugely influential leader for Madrid as a deep-lying midfield general. He could both defend and attack to the very highest standards.
- Paul Breitner: Breitnre was one of the very best left-backs in the world during the 1970s despite being right footed. He also doubled up as one of the very best midfielder too.
- Christoph Metzelder: Metzelder arrived in Madrid on a free-transfer. He was an irregular starter over the next few seasons because of injury and ever-changing personnel around.
- Shkodran Mustafi: Mustafi emerged as a reliable stopper in a struggling team before making an expensive move to England.
- Wolfram Wuttke: Wuttke moved to Spain in 1990 and brought some of his spikey personality to Español.
- Rainer Bonhof: Bonhof spent two successful seasons with Valencia and played a major role in the club’s Copa del Rey and Cup Winners Cup successes of 1979 and 1980.
