Jupp Derwall

Date of birth: 10/03/1927 (died 26/06/2007)

Replacing the legendary Helmut Schön as West Germany coach was no easy task, but nobody was better placed than Derwall, who had served as Schön's assistant for eight years when he was given the top job in 1978. His first major challenge was the 1980 UEFA European Championship and Derwall, a forward capped twice as a player, diligently led West Germany to victory in Italy. Two years later he oversaw the team's progress to the FIFA World Cup final in Spain, where they were beaten 3-1 by Italy, but a poor UEFA European Championship defence in France led to his departure after six years in charge.
