Biography

Berti Vogts was appointed Scotland manager in March 2002

 

Hans-Hubert ’Berti’ Vogts was born on 30 December 1946 in Büttgen, near Dusseldorf. He started his career with his home town club VfR Büttgen, staying with them until 1965 when he signed for Borussia Mönchengladbach.

 

Berti spent the next fourteen years at the club, during a period of unprecedented success. He earned the nickname ’Der Terrier’ for his tenacious play, and became a fans' favourite.

 

He won the Bundesliga five times, as well as two UEFA Cups, and he was twice named German Footballer of the Year, in 1971 and 1979. 

 

The highlight of a successful international career was the World Cup victory in 1974.

 

He retired in 1979 and joined Germany’s national coaching staff. His teams won the European Under-16 Championship in 1984,  reached the final of the Under-20 World Cup in 1987 and the final of the European Under-21 Championship in 1982.

 

Vogts was appointed Germany coach in 1990, succeeding Franz Beckenbauer after the World Cup triumph in Italy, in which he was Beckenbauer’s assistant. 

 

Germany’s 1994 and 1998 World Cup campaigns both ended at the quarter finals, but he led the team to victory in the 1996 European Championship.

 

He resigned as Germany coach in 1998, and had a spell on FIFA’s technical staff, a season as coach to Bayer Leverkusen, and was national coach for Kuwait.

 

He resigned from his post as Scotland national coach on 1 November2004 after a poor start to the World Cup qualifying campaign.
