Ever changing football – people stepping down, new blood stepping in. 1977 had plenty of retirements, legendary players too. The biggest retirement was that of the King, of course. But so much is written about Pele – better mention somebody else. Wolfgang Overath. Born in 1943, he was one of the brightest stars of the arguably best ever German generation. But there was something more – Overath was Mr. Bundesliga: perhaps the only one of the great generation, who played from the very birth of the German fully professional football. And what a start – Overath was the first Bundesliga champion with 1. FC Koln in 1964.
