INFO:

Wörns was widely considered one of the finest German defenders of his generation and one of the best center backs of his era. He started his career with Waldhof Mannheim but played the majority of his career with Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Dortmund. He also had a short stint with Paris SG.

Club career

Wörns made his professional debut in the Bundesliga at the young age of 17 years, 3 months and 30 days for Waldhof Mannheim and at the time, was the fourth youngest debutant ever. He played 18 games in his first season and 34 the next in the 2. Bundesliga. The next year, he transferred to Bayer Leverkusen. Wörns quickly established himself as a defensive stalwart and anchored the strong Leverkusen defense for nearly a decade, together with sweeper Jens Nowotny and Markus Happe. In 1998 he moved abroad to Paris SG in France. He failed to settle in and after one season transferred to Borussia Dortmund. He continued to play at Borussia Dortmund until he retired in 2008.

International career

Wörns represented his country on 66 occasions and did not score. Euro 1996: after an injury hit season, Wörns fails to get nominated and misses being on the winning squad. World Cup 1998: Considered the best player on the German squad, Wörns played a stellar tournament until he fouled Davor Šuker in the 40th minute of the quarter-final match against Croatia to stop a possible breakaway run on goal following a lazy back pass by Lothar Matthaus. Though Wörns, realizing he's late, appeared to pull out of the tackle, contact was made with Šuker who fell theatrically, rolling several times on the ground. The German got a straight red card from Norwegian referee Rune Pedersen and three unanswered goals were scored against Germany after his sending off, making him the scapegoat for his country's 0-3 loss.
World Cup 2002: Wörns injures himself at the last moment, nonetheless Germany reached the final.

Euro Cup 2004: Despite his strong performances against Holland and Latvia, he could not prevent Germany from crashing out in the initial group stage.
When manager Jürgen Klinsmann announced the 22 players for the 2006 FIFA World Cup squad, 34-year-old Wörns was only a backup squad member. This promped an outrageous interview by Wörns. Due to the fact that he verbally attacked Klinsmann during the interview, the German Football Association took disciplinary action against Wörns: he was banned from playing as an international. This was similar to what happened to Uli Stein (during the 1986 FIFA World Cup) and Stefan Effenberg (during the 1994 FIFA World Cup).

Gurkenjoe what do you think about those stats? It has already been discussed on the old site, but I still think current stats in DA, TEC and ATT are too harsh..

And above all his passing looks underrated, listen here what has Dragoslav Stepanović said about him: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IgM_WHNJ9r4

Well I share your opinion. Of course Wörns had no brasilian technique but IMO he could have a low green value there, also DA should be better. Also attack should be raised, he should at least have a value like 64 here. He was a typical CB, extremely defensive minded but with 59 he's totally undervalued IMO..
