I like obscure facts like that. Similarly Bastian Schweinsteiger was the first German to play for Man Utd.
Which is probably even weirder given the bigger amount of imports into the English game. I mean in the same City, you had Bert Trautmann in the 50’s (I think?) and even Uwe Rosler in the 90’s.
I suppose, like Italians, Germans didn’t really leave their country for football until the late 80’s, with a few exceptions.
