Uwe Kamps (born 12 June 1964 in Düsseldorf) is a German retired footballer who played as a goalkeeper.[1] A true one-club man, he spent his entire professional career at Borussia Mönchengladbach and is now a goalkeeping coach at the club.

Club career[edit]

Kamps joined Borussia Mönchengladbach from amateur outfit BV 04 Düsseldorf. On 2 April 1983 he made his debut with the first team, starting in a 5–0 home win against Karlsruher SC, and finished his debut season in the Bundesliga with 12 games and 20 goals conceded, including four in the season's final round, a 4–6 triumph at Borussia Dortmund.

After three additional campaigns with only three matches combined, Kamps became the side's undisputed starter, going on to amass 390 first division games. In 1991–92 he lost the German Cup final to Hannover 96, after a legendary semifinal against Bayer 04 Leverkusen where he saved all four penalties from the opposition (Martin Kree, Ioan Lupescu, Heiko Herrlich and Jorginho); he would start and win the same competition in 1995, after a 3–0 final win over VfL Wolfsburg.

Kamps remained in Borussia's books until 2003–04. He was influential in the club's 2001 return to the top level after one year of absence, but only played one match in his final three seasons, barred by Swiss international Jörg Stiel.

Subsequently Kamps continued working with his only club, as a goalkeeper coach.
