It's hard to know where to start with Jupp Heynckes, so we'll leave it to the man himself. Mr Heynckes, in your long career as a player and coach, what are the special moments you remember the most?
“Plenty of highlights and emotional incidents," replied the 68-year-old. An unbelievable week in October 1971, for example, as he starred when Mönchengladbach beat Inter Milan 7-1, and then Schalke 7-0 just three days later. Or the day the Bökelberg Stadium goalpost broke in a match against Bremen earlier the same year. Or another goal frame collapse, this time in Madrid prior to a Champions League semi-final against Dortmund in April 1998, followed by Real's triumph in the elite competition a month later, “my knighthood as a coach," Heynckes smiled. Or a 1975 UEFA Cup triumph with Gladbach, and his Bundesliga winner’s medals with Borussia and as a coach with Bayern. And even a warm reception in summer 1992 when, despite not knowing a word of Spanish, he took over the reins at Athletic Bilbao.
