Andi Brehme died unexpectedly at the age of 63.

He played for some big clubs.

He will be remembered above all for one goal.

1 / 14Andreas Brehme's (r.) professional career began in 1980 at 1. FC Saarbrücken.

Previously, he almost moved to Hamburger SV, but the then 19-year-old left-back and defensive midfielder ultimately ended up in Saarland.

He stayed with the then second division team for one season.

2 / 14 In 1981, 1. FC Kaiserslautern signed Brehme (l.).

He played 154 competitive games for the Palatinate team and matured into a Bundesliga and German national player alongside players such as Hans-Peter-Briegel, Thomas Allofs and Herbert Hoos (from right).

Although he left 1. FCK in 1986, his farewell wasn't meant to last forever.

3 / 14FC Bayern Munich (1986-1988): In 1986 Brehme joined FC Bayern.

The Munich team paid the then 25-year-old the then Bundesliga record fee for a German player of two million DM. With Bayern he won the German championship and the Supercup in 1987.

4 / 14 Brehme probably had his most successful time at Inter Milan.

From 1988 to 1992 he shaped a German era with the “Nerazzuri” with Lothar Matthäus and Jürgen Klinsmann.

In Milan he celebrated numerous successes, including the Italian championship title in 1989 and the triumph in the UEFA Cup in 1991. In 1989 he was even named Italy's Footballer of the Year.

5 / 14The shot at happiness.

World Cup final in Rome 1990 between Germany and Argentina.

It was 0-0 for a long time before the DFB team was awarded a penalty in the 87th minute after a foul on Rudi Völler.

6 / 14After the final triumph, Brehme (m., with Karl-Heinz Riedle and Pierre Littbarski (from right)) raised the World Cup trophy into the Roman night sky.

It was a special moment for him, not least because of the final defeat against Argentina four years earlier (2:3) in Mexico City.

Brehme played 86 international matches for Germany from 1984 to 1994.

7 / 141992 Brehme moved to the Spanish first division club Real Zaragoza.

But after just 24 games, his time in Aragon ended in the spring of 1993. The trigger was a dispute with Real coach Victor Fernandez.

8 / 14At the beginning of the 1993/94 season, Brehme returned to Kaiserslautern.

He actually wanted to hang up his football boots in 1996.

But after the bitter relegation on the last matchday in Leverkusen, Brehme decided that he wanted to lead the “Red Devils” back into the Bundesliga.

End of career postponed.

9 / 14After the descent, Brehme (right) cried bitter tears.

Previously, his FCK needed a win against Bayer Leverkusen, but couldn't get past a 1-1 draw.

The “Werkself” in turn managed to stay in the league.

His long-time friend Rudi Völler, who played for Bayer, then hugged Brehme and comforted him.

10 / 14The resurgence mission with the 1. FCK was a success – and how!

At the end of the 1998 season, Otto Rehhagel's team sensationally won the German championship as Bundesliga promoted teams.

Brehme played his part in winning the title with five appearances.

He then ended his active career.

11/142000 Andi Brehme returned to Betzenberg.

In 2001 he reached the semi-finals of the UEFA Cup with 1. FCK and also equaled FC Bayern's Bundesliga start record.

But due to a weak start to the 2002/03 season, he had to retire.

12 / 14An argument from Brehme's coaching activities in Kaiserslautern also remains unforgotten.

During a Bayern guest game at Betzenberg, Munich manager Uli Hoeneß (r.) stormed angrily towards the Lauter coach, and a heated exchange of words ensued.

What this was actually about is not conveyed, but a parody made a memorable mockery of the scene.

Happy Easter!

13 / 14 In 2005, Brehme (m.) started his last job on the sidelines after a very short stint as head coach of SpVgg Unterhaching.

He became assistant coach to his former Inter coach Giovanni Trapattoni (r.) at VfB Stuttgart.

But the employment with the Swabians didn't last long; in February 2006, those responsible at VfB dismissed the entire coaching staff.

14 / 14Brehme (right next to Günter Netzer) made his last public appearance on January 19, 2024 at the memorial service in honor of the late Franz Beckenbauer.

He laid roses for the emperor at the center circle of the Allianz Arena.
