Early life

Franz Beckenbauer was born in the post-war ruins of Munich, the second son of postal-worker Franz Beckenbauer senior and his wife Antonie. He grew up in the working-class district of Giesing and, despite his father's cynicism about the game, started playing football at the age of eight with the youth team of SC Munich '06 in 1954."[2] Giesing is a neighborhood in Munich about 3 miles south-east of the city center. ...


Originally a center forward, he idolised 1954 World Cup winner Fritz Walter and supported local side 1860 Munich, then the pre-eminent team in the city, despite their relegation from the top league, the Oberliga Süd, in the 1950s. ("It was always my dream to play for them" he would later confirm.)[3] That he joined the FC Bayern Munich youth team in 1959, rather than that of his favourites 1860, was the result of a contentious Under-14 youth tournament in nearby Neubiberg. Beckenbauer and his team-mates were aware that their SC Munich '06 club lacked the finance to continue running its youth sides, and had determined to join 1860 as a group upon the tournament's conclusion. However, fortune decreed that SC Munich and 1860 would meet in the final and a series of niggles during the match eventually resulted in a physical confrontation between Beckenbauer and the opposing centre-half. The ill-feeling this engendered had a strong effect upon Beckenbauer and his team-mates, who decided to join FC Bayern's youth side rather than the team they had recently come to blows with.[4] Qualifying countries The 1954 Football World Cup was held in Switzerland. ...

In 1963, at the age of 18, Beckenbauer was engulfed in controversy when it was revealed that his then girlfriend was pregnant, and that he had no intention of marrying her. Given the conservative social values of the era, he was originally banned from the West German national youth team by the DFB, and only readmitted after some diplomatic wrangling from the side's coach Dettmar Cramer.[5] Dettmar Cramer (born April 4, 1925 in Dortmund) was a German football player and coach who led Bayern Munich to the 1975 and 1976 European Cups. ...

Trivia

Nickname Der Kaiser

Since 1968, Beckenbauer has been called der Kaiser by fans and the media. The following anecdote is told (even by Beckenbauer himself) to explain the origin: On the occasion of a friendly game of Bayern Munich in Vienna, Beckenbauer posed for a photo session right beside a bust of the former Austrian emperor Franz Joseph I. The media called him Fußball-Kaiser (football-emperor) afterwards, and soon he was called just Kaiser.[citation needed] Year 1968 (MCMLXVIII) was a leap year starting on Monday (link will display full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ...

According to a report [8] in the German newspaper Welt am Sonntag this explanation is untrue, though very popular. According to the report, Beckenbauer fouled his opposite number, Reinhard Libuda from Schalke 04, in the cup finale on the June 14, 1969. Disregarding the fans' hooting, Beckenbauer took the ball into the opposite part of the field, where he balanced the ball in front of the upset fans for half a minute. Libuda was commonly called König von Westfalen (king of Westphalia), so the press looked for an even more exalted moniker and invented der Kaiser.

Other trivia notes

  • After appearing in an ad for a big mobile phone company, Beckenbauer specifically requested the number 0176 / 666666 for his mobile phone. However, he soon was flooded with phone calls by men who thought it was a phone sex number (in German, "6" translates to "sechs", very close to the word sex).[9]
  • When he was age 8, he saw the 1954 Switzerland World Cup final match, which Germany won and became world champion, and said to his mother: "I'll be the winner of that final match when I become an adult football player." He really became a champion of 1974 World Cup after 20 years.
  • Beckenbauer is mentioned in Monty Python's sketch "The Philosophers' Football Match" as being a surprise addition to the German team. However, instead of actually playing football all the "players" walk in circles thinking, much to the confusion of Beckenbauer.
