Hans-Peter BRIEGEL | 1980-1986

Nickname: "Die Walz von der Pfalz" (literally "The steamroller from Palatinate")

Growth type: Standard/Lasting


INFO:

Hans-Peter Briegel (born 11 October 1955 in Rodenbach, West Germany) is a former German football player and manager.

One of the most popular players in his days, Hans-Peter Briegel's original sport was athletics, being successful in various events such as long jump (personal best: 7 metres 50 cm), triple jump and specifically in heptathlon-forerunner pentathlon. Briegel gained his best result as an athlete in Decathlon, but the son of a farmer struggled to compete properly in javelin throw and the high jump. So at the age of 17 he left athletics behind him, playing club football with hometown side SV Rodenbach near Kaiserslautern.


Club career

Two years after that he was picked up by Erich Ribbeck and Ribbeck took him to training with 1. FC Kaiserslautern, being impressed by the power and stamina the youngster had to offer. Ribbeck was aware that Briegel struggled to combinate football need with his physical power and presence, but as practice makes perfect, Briegel was improving. Failing to cope the needs as striker, he did a lot better as defender. On 10 April 1976, Ribbeck brought him on as a sub in a 4-3 win over Bayern München. Until 1984 he stayed with local side 1. FC Kaiserslautern before he moved on to Hellas Verona in Italy. It should be seen as one of the best efforts of his career that he also gained his sort of reputation and importance in a league such as the Italian Serie A, largely seen as one of the most technical in Europe. Briegel was an immediate key to success for his new club, surprisingly capturing the Serie A title in 1985 with the Gialloblu. The same year Briegel was named Fußballer des Jahres (Footballer of the Year) in Germany, remarkable as he was the first foreign-based awardee in the history of the award.

Subsequent to the end of his contract at Hellas Verona, Briegel changed clubs to join fellow Italian top division outfit U.C. Sampdoria of Genoa with whom he won the Coppa Italia before his retirement as a player in 1988. Hans-Peter Briegel's success in football, based on his physical constitution, his speed and his tireless running, made him the clearest symbol for the soldier-like reputation of German football in between the years. His nickname Die Walz von der Pfalz (literally "The steamroller from Palatinate") is referring to both, his playing style as well as to his origin. Briegel, who scored 47 goals in 240 Bundesliga matches, was a keen proponent of the idea of playing without shin pads and did not wear any in his career.


Germany career

A Euro 1980 qualifying fixture against Wales in October 1979 gave Briegel his first chance to shine for West Germany and he did, enjoying his final breakthrough for his country in the mentioned tournament. He was, then, part of the runner-up campaign of West Germany at the 1982 FIFA World Cup and featured alike in the less successful Euro 1984, all under the coaching of Jupp Derwall. Derwall's successor Franz Beckenbauer kept him in his squads and, so, Briegel was able to take part in his second successive World Cup in Mexico in 1986. He was a regular, still, but finally the key to Argentina's winning goal in the final. Three minutes past Rudi Völler's equaliser and seven minutes short of the proposed extra-time, Briegel was, alongside his defending colleagues, hovering near the centre circle of the Estadio Azteca pitch on 29 June when Diego Maradona's pass was going to get on its way to striker Jorge Burruchaga. With his team-mates aware, all moving forward quickly before that pass happened (to put the Argentinian striker offside), Briegel's hesitation worked as backfire for the West Germans, giving Burruchaga the chance to pounce decisively on them. Power-house Briegel tried to catch Burruchaga up in an attempt to dispossess him, indeed, but Burruchaga game-winning shot happened before Briegel's desperate tackle came to happen. With Beckenbauer not a true fan of his way of playing and him not having any intention to stand in the way of the coach to build a new team ahead of Euro 1988, to be held in West Germany, the tall defender quit Die Nationalmannschaft with this, his 72nd, appearance.

WB should be his main positin. plus SB, DM

stats are nice, but he can get a higher aggression. 87 isn`t too high

Updated him to fit new format. Added all Cards, Growth type, Consistency, Videos and Additional Links.

***

Changes...

1. Switched primary position from DMF to SB (@s-cobar: mate, as far as I could see his primary position was left back, or at least he started the games at that position ;)). Added secondary positions: CB, WB, DMF. Should he have CMF and maybe even SMF? Some people claimed to me that he was used on those positions a few times, but I never actually saw his games, while being used as CMF or SMF.

2. Added Hellas Verona in his club list.

3. Raised Aggression (based on s-cobar's suggestion) from 84 to 87. I've thought about giving him P01: Overlapping Run, but I've given up on that idea, due to his high Aggression, decent Attack value and high Team Work. He should be solid threat during his team's attacks.

4. Lowered Condition from 8 to 7, because he was playing around 45 games per season.
