During his heyday as a player Schuster and his wife, Gaby, were well known celebrities in Germany, and were both loved and hated. Gaby had a controversial reputation, worsened when she took over the job as her husband's manager. She was soon labelled by the press as being "Bernd's dragon-like boss" without whom he would never even sign a bill in a restaurant.[citation needed] During the Schusters' stay in Spain, Gaby was also notorious for her often very public rude and interfering comments directed towards FC Barcelona coach Udo Lattek and national coach Jupp Derwall when her husband played for them. Gaby and Bernd Schuster are still married and have four children. Gaby is a famous sport manager but she has not been Bernd Schuster's manager for some years. Udo Lattek - early 1970s Udo Lattek (Born January 16, 1935 in Bosemb, East Prussia, Germany, now Poland, Masuria region) was a football (soccer) player and coach, and is now a now television sports commentator. ...


Schuster was an important part of the FC Barcelona team during the 1980s, leading the game from midfield and scoring many goals. The team bought other stars like Diego Maradona, Allan Simonsen and Gary Lineker, but only Bernd, genial and controversial at the same time, was a profitable player for the club. His club president Josep Luís Nuñez and some trainers like Helenio Herrera, Udo Lattek, Terry Venables and Luis Aragones had difficult relations with him[1]. A terrible injury at age 21 in his right knee in 1981 by Athletic Bilbao defender Andoni Goikoetxea transformed the top world star, who despite his magnificent performance, never reached the level of the early seasons. He won, however, the European Bronze Ball in 1981 and 1985. Diego Armando Maradona (born October 30, 1960) is an Argentine former football player. ...

His move to Real Madrid was a national scandal in Spain due to the very strong rivalry between Barcelona and Madrid. In Madrid, he took on a less controversial approach in order to better fit in with the star-studded roster. His style complemented the group of home-grown Madrid players known as la Quinta del Buitre who led the team to a dominance of the Spanish Championship through the 1980s.

Professional career

Schuster started his professional career with 1. FC Köln at age 18 in 1978 after a number of promising performances with the West German Under-18 National team. He was part of the West German side that won the 1980 UEFA European Football Championship in Italy, appearing in two of Germany's four matches. His performances there helped him earn the Silver Ball Trophy honour as the Europe's second best player in 1980 behind Golden Ball winner, and Germany team-mate Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. 1. ...

Schuster left Köln after the 1980 European campaign to sign with Spain's FC Barcelona, where he flourished.

International retirement

Schuster won only twenty-one caps for the West German national team and he retired from international football at the extremely young age of 24, due to his repeated disagreements with the German Football Association, then national team manager Jupp Derwall, and teammates including Paul Breitner[1]. The German Football Association (DFB) (German: Deutscher Fußball-Bund) is the governing body of football in Germany. ... Josef Jupp Derwall (b. ...

Comeback

His final cap came against France in early 1984. Despite being one of the better players in Europe during the nineteen years of his professional career he did not participate in the World Cup competitions of 1982, 1986, 1990, and 1994, or the European Championship competitions of 1984, 1988, 1992, and 1996. Without him West Germany did not win any major titles in the 1980s, but did go on to win the 1990 World Cup 1990 and Euro 96.

His long precise passes helped restore Atlético Madrid as a prominent club. Club Atlético de Madrid is a Spanish football club based in Madrid. ...


After three seasons, Bernd returned home to Germany to play for three seasons with Bayer Leverkusen. Despite his contributions, the club was unable to capture Bundesliga and German Cup titles, but did come achingly close. His performances inspired much of the country to push for a place for him in the 1994 World Cup squad.

Management

At his final team, the Mexican UNAM he appeared in ten matches in spring 1997. After his retirement as a player in 1997, Schuster successfully managed a small club in Cologne, SC Fortuna Köln in 2. Fußball-Bundesliga (Germany's second league division). Following this, he managed his former club 1. FC Köln, also in the 2. Fußball-Bundesliga, but was unable to get the club promoted and so he left. In 2001 he received an offer from the modest club Xerez CD in Southern Spain and he managed the team, very successfully, for two seasons; the best two seasons in the history of the club. However, he could not promote the team to Primera Division. Upon receiving no good offers from Spain, he accepted a deal to coach the Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk where he established a club record number of consecutive victories. The final rush was disappointing. The team did not win the championship and did not reach the final round of the Champions League with a polemical match against Lokomotiv Moscow.

He went back to Spain in summer 2004 to coach Levante UD. Again a wonderful start with the small club from Valencia. Again a disappointing final rush.
