A nightmare, Heddergott.
Koeln am Rhein was waiting Bernd to build the future.
Trainers WEISWEILLER and LOEHR were happy to get Bernd
The city of the most famous Karneval of Germany was happy because some months ago the FC Koeln got the Bundesliga and also the DFB Cup.
Young Schuster became a key player for the future. The U18 nationaltrainer and former star Berti VOGTS called him for his squad. Bernd discovered in Cologne a new kind of people, new ice hockey team and new nightlife.
His debout was in october 1978 for the 2nd half vs. Eintrach Frankfurt. The team lost for 2 goals but Bernd got his position in the top 11 to play in the future. In just 3 months Bernd showed he was no a future star, he WAS A STAR.
He is called for the
nationalteam U21 and just after one match, when he was
only 19, the national trainer Jupp DERWALL call him for
the absolute national team of Germany. Only one year
after left Augsburg, Bernd is the most important player
for the future of the country, also called The new
Beckenbauer. His quality ball touch is the better ever
seen in Mungersdorfer Stadium.
Bernd called Hennes
WEISWEILLER, who was training abroad and he was like a
father for him. Bernd wanted to go to Cosmos NY with him.
The main problem is
Bernd is more expensive after it. He was only 20 and a
european champion with an impressive future. Whole Europe
is interested but Bernd wants to go near WEISWEILLER in
New York City. The fans, who saw Bernd was lost for the
club, are very angry with Heddergott.
The USA comission on the soccer league is not interested about any other foreign player and the life for Bernd and his wife and baby is impossible in Cologne.
President WEIAND got the one he wanted: He sell the young star to the best buyer: FC Barcelona payed 40 million pesettas. A terrible price for a terrible player, in all sense.
On october 1980, Bernd, Gaby and little Benjamin arrived to FC Barcelona to change the history of the catalan club.
Hennes the goat.
