The 38-year-old, who also played for FC Homberg, Kaiserslautern, Werder Bremen and Bayern Munich, remains Germany’s all-time leading scorer with 71 goals in 137 matches. He also scored the most goals in World Cup finals. The German (FA (DFB) confirmed his retirement on Tuesday (today) and said he would be working on his coaching badges.
