Former German midfielder, Danner played mostly for Borussia and was part of club's great and mobile midfield in 70's. He was bought as a playmaker but since Netzer was one of the leading playmakers in the world, Danner played behind him. But also played on the sides, not only in central misfield, due to his versatility, good technique, his running and good ball control, as well as accurrate long balls in depth. His father Walter Danner played during the Second World War and after returning from captivity from 1949 to 1951 in the first team of VfR Mannheim. Dietmar Danner began at Eintracht Plank town with the football before he moved to the VFR Mannheim, where he made his debut with 18 years in the Regional team. In 1971 the left-footed player joined Borussia Mönchengladbach, where he and Rainer Bonhof, Guenter Netzer and Herbert Wimmer made the midfield axis. In 1973 Danner with Borussia finished fifth in the Bundesliga and were DFB Cup winner. After Netzer's move to Real Madrid and Bonhof's retreat to the defense, Danner was in the 1973/74 season, together with Horst Köppel, Christian Kulik and Herbert Wimmer the midfield line of Borussia at the end took second place behind Bayern Munich. In the first half of the 1974-75 season because of injuries was little used, in the second half he was again a regular player and won his first German championship title. On 7 May 1975 in Dusseldorf and on 21 May in Enschede was then in the two finals of the UEFA Cup; Borusia Moenchengladbach won after a 5-1 second leg win over FC Twente Enschede as the first German team ever the UFA Cup. In the season 1975/76 was then in all 34 games there and won for the second time the German championship title. Danner had participated in his first five years at Borussia in 149 games, than started the problems with the medial ligament and the meniscus and in the next four years he collected only thirty games. In the German national team Danner came to six official appearances in the period from 1973 to 1976. His sixth and last international match was the semifinal of the European Football Championship in 1976, when he was substituted at halftime by Heinz Flohe. Danner in the national team could never build on the club benefits, he also had to regularly fight with injuries. His career as a professional footballer, he sat in the 1980/81 season at FC Schalke 04 with 19 appearances on, he got off with Schalke in the Bundesliga. From there he spent a year at 1 FC Saarbrücken. 1982/83 he finished his football career after one year at ASK Linz in Austria.
