Playing career[edit]

Club[edit]

At club level, Möller played for Eintracht Frankfurt (1985–87, 1990–92, 2003–04), Borussia Dortmund (1988–90, 1994–2000), Juventus (1992–94), and Schalke 04 (2000–03). He won the UEFA Cup with Juventus in 1993, beating Borussia Dortmund 6–1 on aggregate, Möller scoring one of the goals. He then won the Champions League with Dortmund in 1997, beating his former team, Juventus, 3–1.

International[edit]

With the German national team, Möller won the 1990 World Cup and Euro 96. For Germany, Möller was capped 85 times, scoring 29 goals. Other than the two major tournament wins, he also played for his country at the 1994 and 1998 World Cups, as well as Euro 92. Möller did not play in the final of the 1990 World Cup and was suspended for the final of Euro 96 after he was booked in the semi final against England. In the subsequent shoot out after a 1–1 draw Möller scored the winning penalty in which he celebrated by copying the bravado of the pose struck earlier in the shoot out when Paul Gascoigne had converted his penalty.

After retirement[edit]

In June 2007, he started his career as football manager at Viktoria Aschaffenburg, playing in the Oberliga Hessen. From 2008 to 2011, he was athletic director for Kickers Offenbach.

Möller features in EA Sports' FIFA video game series; he was on the cover of the German edition of FIFA 98.[1]

On 20 October 2015 Möller was given a job for the Hungary national football team. Here he will work as an assistant for Bernd Storck. They played together for Borussia Dortmund when Dortmund won the West German Cup in the 1988/89 season.

Style of play[edit]

A talented, versatile, and complete advanced playmaker, Möller was known for his range of passing, creativity, vision, and technical ability, as well being capable of playing the ball first time and striking powerfully with both feet. In addition to his creative abilities, he also known for his goalscoring and his ability in the air, which also allowed him to be deployed as a supporting striker or even as a winger.[2][3]
