Lothar Emmerich was fantastic German striker and brillant scorer who scored tons of goals wherever he played. His trademark was his phenomenal left footed machine gun with whom he could score from all distances and angles, counting the impossible ones. He was physically a beast, very strong with good speed, solid jumping abilities and passing range. He was also solid FK taker. Emmerich started his career in 1960 when he joined Borussia Dortmund but struggled in his first three seasons to find a place in the team, he had his breakthrough in the first season of the Bundesliga in 1963-64. An outside left with a real poacher’s instinct coupled with great firepower in his left foot, Emmerich’s peak years were 1965 to 1967 when he became the best scoring forward in Germany for two consecutive seasons. In Dortmund’s 1965-66 European campaign he scored 14 goals in 9 games. Germany manager Helmut Schön had not been impressed by Emmerich and originally did not intend to use him for the national team as Emmerich had grave technical limitations which is why Schön considered him unsuited to fit well into the national team, but because he was a favorite of the fans and the tabloids, Schön gave in and called him up to play in the 1966 World Cup. In the late-1960s his luck at goal scoring somewhat faded and in 1969 he left the Bundesliga for good to pursue a career in Belgium where became top scorer in his first season for Beerschot. In 1966 he was the sole top scorer with 31 goals in the Bundesliga with 28 goals in 1967 and together with Gerd Muller. 1965 Dortmund won the DFB Cup with 2-0 win over Alemannia Aachen in 1966 as the first German team ever European Cup Winners' Cup. Emma quickly became one of the top stars in the Austrian National League. In 1972/1973 he was with 20 goals behind Wolfgang Breuer, SSW Innsbruck, the 22 goals scored, second in the scoring charts in Austria, 1973/74 with 21 goals again second behind Hans Krankl, who scored 36 goals, while Austria Klagenfurt always embroiled in a relegation battle was, however, Emmerich's competitors were playing at the top clubs. Lothar Emmerich died at the age of 61 from lung cancer. He is buried at the cemetery district in Dortmund-Marten.
