The former football professional and coach Jürgen Sundermann is dead. He was 82 years old.

This was announced by his former club VfB Stuttgart, citing Sundermann's family on Wednesday.

Accordingly, the former promotion hero of the Swabians died last Tuesday.

»Jürgen Sundermann has achieved great things for VfB Stuttgart and has always combined humanity and optimism.

His unshakable belief in success and his open nature made the football coach, commonly referred to in this country as a 'miracle man', a legend of VfB coaching par excellence during his lifetime.

We will miss him,” said VfB President Claus Vogt in a statement from the Bundesliga club.

Sundermann coached Stuttgart back into the Bundesliga in the 1976/1977 season, and in the two following seasons VfB finished fourth and second.

In the further course of his coaching career, Sundermann, who was born in Mülheim an der Ruhr in 1940, took a seat on the VfB bench again (1980 to 1982 and 1995).

In addition, he worked as a scout and coach for the traditional team for the Swabians.

In total, Sundermann coached 15 different clubs.

As a player, Sundermann made 29 Bundesliga appearances for Hertha BSC and made one appearance for the German senior team.

He completed most of the assignments at FC Basel in Switzerland.
