Manfred 'Manni' Burgsmuller (1949 - 8 May 2019)
German footballer.
with 213 goals in 447 games Manni is the fourth highest
goal scorer in Bundesliga history.
most notably played with Dortmund and Otto Rehagel's Bremen
where he won the Bundesliga aged 38 in 1988 in a career
which lasted from 1967-90.
despite this he only won 3 caps (no goals...)

after he retired he continued playing... as a kicker for six years
in the NFL Europe (long defunct).
he died suddenly on saturday after being found collapsed at his apartment
in his home city of Essen.

Burgsmuller is certainly in 'the greatest player you never heard of' category.
I didn't know him (even as 80's kid) only becoming aware of him in the 2000's.
