Klaus is former German libero. He was very good player but had bad luck of playing on same position as Willi Schulz first and later Kaiser Franz so his time in NT was limited. Sieloff was strong player with fantastic vision and ability to start the attacks from back line. He practiced boxing in his eraly years later successfully turned into attacking sweeper who liked to surge forward and score with his powerful shot. Klaus was strong tackler with decent pace and good ball control. A native of Tilsit in East Prussia young players came through the stations Borussia Kiel (to 1954) and FV Rottweil (1954-1959) in 1959 in the youth department of the South-Oberliga side VfB Stuttgart. His first league game was completed by the athletic, well, next duel with good leadership and a hard shot from distance provided young players on the 9th October 1960 in front of 30,000 spectators in the 2-0 home win against 1 FC Nuremberg, when he and violinist Rolf Eberhard Pfisterer and formed the trio VfB interior. In his first league year saw the addition of six more missions and VfB finished in seventh place. In the last year of the old class system, league, 1962-63, who had qualified in sixth place with VfB Stuttgart for the new football league for the 1963-64 season and Sieloff already played in the notebook of national coach Sepp Herberger. He was the first international match on 13 May 1964 in Hannover from the cadres of the Scotland national team and celebrated on 7 June 1964 at the international match against Finland in Helsinki's debut in the DFB-team. It was the last game in the coaching era of national coach Sepp Herberger and VfB colleague Rolf Geiger rushed into the German offensive. From 1963 to 1969 graduated as Sieloff VfB defender 141 Bundesliga appearances for Stuttgart and scored 21 goals. Personally had occurred at the defensive specialist with quality construction and long shots to stagnate in recent years and he was not satisfied with the sporty end in Stuttgart. Therefore, the offer came to him from Borussia Mönchengladbach 1969/70 round called as he built up by the actual coach Hennes Weisweiler and the joy of playing the "Foal team" to give rise to even with him in person again joy and enthusiasm. Sieloff, the eight-time national player, moved to the 1969/70 round of the Lower Rhine to Borussia Moenchengladbach. Borussia started 1969/70 with a 0-2 away defeat at Schalke 04 in the round. In 33 games with a circular gate he had conducted the defense of the new master. The first successful title defense in the history of the Bundesliga, 1970/71, which translated into not only the defensive libero accents, again in 33 league games, six goals had contributed. Also 1971, Mönchengladbach, the best defense. Sieloff was with Borussia but in the next European Cup games in the legendary works. In 1970/71 the national championship contest two games loomed 1:1 draw against the English champions Everton out with Ball, Hurst, Royle and Morrissey and thereby lost the duel in a penalty shootout. In the year 1971/72 was the "litter box" game on 20 October 1971 against Inter Milan in the football history books with 7:1 goals against Inter at Burgnich, Facchetti, Corso, Mazzola and Boninsegna. Then the game was canceled by UEFA because of a litter box by a spectator and a replay against Boninsegna on 1 December 1971 in Berlin set. Wittkamp shortened in Milan in the 89th Minute of the game on the final whistle with 2:3 and scored the 4-2 winning goal for Inter Ghio. Sieloff spent in Berlin in the 17th Minutes through a penalty kick and the 0-0 draw with Borussia He retired from the contest. As in Mönchengladbach in the 1972/73 UEFA Cup semi-finals with 3-0 and 2-1 goals against Twente Enschede prevailed and moved into the finals against Liverpool, Sieloff conducted in two games, the defense, although it caused by injuries in the Bundesliga had completed only six matches. In the two games against Liverpool but he missed again, especially at Anfield in the 0-3 defeat a defense chief was missing at all corners and ends of and experimentation with Günter Netzer did not go on as a sweeper. In his last round Gladbach, 1973/74, he played in the Cup Winners' Cup with Borussia through successes against IBV Vestmannaeyjar, Glasgow Rangers and Glentoran Belfast to the semi-finals against AC Milan. In Milan, the game was lost 0-2 with goals and the tight 1-0 home win on 24 April 1974 was not enough to move into the final. Total Klaus-Dieter Sieloff has completed 22 European Cup games, scoring two goals. Unfortunately for Sieloff, he lost his starting place in the German national team during the 1965-66 season and thus did not feature in the 1966 FIFA World Cup. During the next four years, the sweeper position was usually that of either Willi Schulz or Karl-Heinz Schnellinger and thus Sieloff did not gain anymore caps up to 1970. After the 1970 FIFA World Cup, with Willi Schulz retiring from international play and Karl-Heinz Schnellinger not featuring regularly in the German lineups due to playing abroad, Sieloff revived his international career, which was also fostered by his success at club level with Borussia Mönchengladbach.

Stop the PSD copycats...
