Arno Steffenhagen is former German player whose promising career suffered a big setback by his involvment in huge Bundesliga bribing scandal in 1971, just after he made the way in the German NT. Arno was fast and tricky winger, who sometimes could even operate as central midfielder.For the fee of DM 20,000 Steffenhagen moved in 1968 from RFC Old Holland in the Berlin district of Reinickendorf to Hertha BSC. However, there were always problems with coach Helmut Kronsbein, because he didn't want long-haired players and Steffenhagen was sent back at an away game in the team bus in order the long hair could be cut off. On 8 September 1971 Steffenhagen came to his first and last international cap. In Hanover, Mexico was defeated 5-0 clear. Steffenagen came on here for Horst Köppel. Other appearances did not come, mainly because Hertha BSC and Steffenhagen took part in the Bundesliga scandal. Steffenhagen was initially banned for two years, but later the penalty has been reduced. Therefore, he moved abroad. He first played at Hellenic Cape Town, but returned back to Europe in order to sign for Ajax Amsterdam. The return to the Bundesliga came in 1976. For two years, Steffenhagen played for Hamburger SV, which won the 1977 European Cup Winners' Cup. In 1978 he went to the USA to Chicago Sting. In the fall of 1978 he played, because Chicago did not qualify for the championship finals, short time for the FC St. Pauli. At the end of his career, he gave in 1983: brief stint in Canada at Toronto Blizzard and Vancouver Whitecaps. In 1984, then finally came an end to football career for Arno Steffenhagen. Steffenhagen played 183 Bundesliga games. Here he scored 39 goals.
