Former M'gladbach legend, Hannes started as forward but soon was moved to libero position as many other German players. His strengths were excellent heading abilities, good shot, hard tackling, excellent ball control and passing range for a defender, but he was most known for achieving his career despite being visually impaired after a pupil-tumor had caused him to lose his sight in his right eye as a child. As already mentioned, Hannes saw in 1957 the light of day. As a 18-year-old he moved from his hometown club SG Düren to Borussia Moenchengladbach. The former striker was reversed to defender, which paid off in the end too. For the Borussia he made in the period 1975 - 1986 a total of 261 games, scoring 58 goals. He experienced the great times of Borussia Moenchengladbach in late 70s by winning the German championship twice, and celebrated also winning the UEFA Cup. Like some of his teammates, Wilfried Hannes also acted in the German national team. His international career for West Germany lasted for just about one year in the early 1980s. In these months he won eight caps in qualification for the 1982 FIFA World Cup. He went to the 1982 FIFA World Cup with West Germany and they came runners-up in the tournament. The fact he only made eight appearances was more to do with the great defensive partnership of the Förster brothers at that time rather than his lack of ability. After 11 years with Borussia, he moved in 1986 for 2 years at FC Schalke. For the miners, he played 48 games (4 goals). In 1988, "Winnie" went abroad, specifically in Switzerland. His last two stops as an active player, the AC Bellinzona and FC Aarau. were his final ones. Than he aspired to a career as a coach. He coached the following teams: Alemannia Aachen (1991 - 1994), Rhenania Würselen (1995 - 1998), Borussia Freialdenhoven (1999 - 2003) and GFC Düren (2003 - 2004). In 2004 Wilfried Hannes returned back to Borussia Freialdenhoven. To this day he is still working there as a coach.

Stop the PSD copycats...
