Legendary libero of fantastic Borussia side from 70's and one of the most underrated German players. Started as a striker, but soon moved in midfield and eventually in defence. Strong in the air, with excellent sense of anticipating and good ball control. Wittkamp started his Bundesliga career in 1967 at FC Schalke 04 as a striker and midfielder. He transferred in 1971 to Borussia Moenchengladbach and at Bökelberg celebrated his greatest successes, mostly as a sweeper. At the end of his career, he moved in 1978 SpVgg Erkenschwick in the highest amateur league and 2nd Northern Premier league. He was involved as Schalke player in the Bundesliga scandal and later as Gladbach player, Essen state court finally convicted him. After that, he was with the Borussia 1975, 1976 and 1977 German Champion and in 1973 DFB Cup winner. His greatest international triumph he celebrated by winning the 1975 UEFA Cup and in 1977 he reached the final of the European Champions Cup against Liverpool, but lost with the Mönchengladbach. This season Wittkamp headed in the semi-final second leg against Dynamo Kiev decisive 2-0. The ball was hit from free-kick trick by Rainer Bonhof over the wall and Wittkamp battled through despite foul worth penalty, but shot the ball against the chest of the last man standing on the line. After the rebound was again flanked in the penalty area, Wittkamp headed the ball artistically with his back to goal for 2-0. Wittkamp played 280 times in the First Bundesliga, scoring 58 goals. In the second division he was made 36 appearances in which he scored twice in the opponents goal.

Stop the PSD copycats...
