What a player. Rummenigge was often portrayed in the British media as "just" an out-and-out goal-scoring striker, albeit a very good one. However, there was a lot more to his game than that. He'd actually started out as a winger in his early days with Bayern Munich, his pace and dribbling ideally suited to the role. He also had great awareness and clever movement, meaning at times he could be used as a second striker or even an attacking midfielder.
As the years went on it was as a more central striking role for which he found fame, all of the attributes previously mentioned, along with his strength, heading ability and finishing made him one of the greatest forwards of the 1980s, backed up by his superb stats for the national team: 45 goals in 95 games.
Rummenigge spent ten years at 1. FC Köln before a big money move to Inter in 1984. Despite scoring 18 goals in each of his first two seasons, his time at the San Siro became beset with injuries, and he moved to Swiss club Servette in 1987 to see out the remainder of his career.
