One of the greatest HSV players and long time team captain. Jakobs played in the beginning as midfielder and classic German "Vorstopper", later started to play as a libero. Player with excellent heading abilities and very strong in tackling, solid pace and great fighting spirit. It has been said in Germany: "Ditmar Jakobs is the last great fighter in the Bundesliga". The long-time captain was one of the greatest players in the jersey of HSV (11 years, 323 games, 27 goals). He was a member of the team, the 1983 European Cup champions won, 1980 runner-up at the national champions and 1982 UEFA Cup, was 2 times German Champion (1982/1983) and 1 times DFB Cup winner (1987) was. 20 times international (Vice World Champion 1986). Began at Arminia Lirich, then 1971-74 at Red White Oberhausen (39/12). After relegation from the Premier League in 1974 Tennis Borussia Berlin (33 / 1), there descent, ascent and descent again. 1977 for 2 years for MSV Duisburg (68 / 2). Was at those stations and especially after 1979 when then HSV always "Mr. Reliable". But not only sport he was a very important cornerstone, but also among the players, "pound type, always honest and open, one who could be relied on completely. "Jacko" ended his career after a serious back injury in a game at the end against Werder Bremen 09.20.1989. When an attacker overlobbed his goalie, Jakobs lunged feet-first into his goal and scraped the ball off the line. However, he fell into the hooks fixing the goal to the ground (in that time, the hooks were not stipulated to be under the earth). He hung there for 20 agonising minutes, the hook dug deeply into his flesh. Finally, the team doctor cut the hooks from his back with a scalpel. With this, the nerves in his back were cut. Because of this horrible accident, he was forced to end his career. However, he regards himself lucky, as the hook missed his spine be a mere two inches. Has chronic motoric disorders, so still needs a walker to move around. With a total of 493 Premier League matches (and 45 goals) he is in 13th Place in the eternal ranking with the most Bundesliga games. Ditmar Jakobs was co-owner and CFO of a rehabilitation center (that specializes in sports injuries), with contribution from Holger Hieronymus, in Altona and is now living as an insurance broker in Norderstedt, near Hamburg.

Stop the PSD copycats...

Hey, here is a crazy thought! Jakobs as Center Forward! I just watched 1983 Intercontinental Cup, and Jakobs played most of second half of regulation, and entire extra-time as Center Forward indeed. Hamburger desperately needed to score, and they just started to send crosses into Gremio penalty area, and Jakobs was the receiver. Did not score, but set-up Schroder's equalizer in the end of regulation.
