You won’t find many German players more decorated than Matthias Sammer.
Signing from Inter Milan at the midpoint of the 1992/93 season, Sammer made an instant impact at Dortmund, scoring ten goals before dropping back to a sweeper role and becoming a mainstay of the BVB defence.
Sammer holds the honour of being the only Dortmund captain ever to have lifted the Champions League trophy, which was earned in 1997.
He later managed Dortmund to a further Bundesliga victory in 2002.

Lars Ricken grew up in Dortmund and, in 1994, became the youngest player ever to appear for the club at 17 years, seven months and 27 days.
The loyal yellow broke another record when he scored the third and final goal in the game which led to BVB winning their first and only Champions League title to date. He found the back of the net just 16 seconds after replacing Stephane Chapuisat, lobbing the keeper from 25 yards; no substitute has ever scored more quickly after coming on in a Champions League final.

Cool, composed and perceptive in defence, and armed with a lethal header, Kohler was one of the best German centre-backs of his time.
Having arrived at Dortmund in the autumn of his career, Kohler played seven years in a yellow jersey, winning three Bundesliga titles in his time.
The last game of his career was marred by his earning a straight red, taking Dortmund down to ten men and resulting in a penalty which helped Feyenoord defeat die Schwarzgelben to deny them the 2002 UEFA Cup trophy.

Strong, tall and dominant, Mats Hummels is often compared to German legend Franz Beckenbauer.

When he retired he played for ‘Roman and Friends’ in a special testimonial match, only the eighth of its kind in BVB history.
