Ditmar Jakobs (born 28 August 1953 in Oberhausen) is a former German soccer player.

He was a centre-back, a classical libero in the mold of Franz Beckenbauer or Willi Schulz. Jakobs played 493 games from 1971 to 1990 for Rot-Weiß Oberhausen, Tennis Borussia Berlin, MSV Duisburg and Hamburger SV.

With Hamburger SV he won the 1987 German Cup. In 1982 and 1983 he became German champion and 1983 he won the UEFA Champions League.

Jakobs was a member of the German national football team, which was runner-up in the World Cup 1986 in Mexico. From 1980 to 1986, Jakobs collected 20 caps for the Deutscher Fußball-Bund.

His name is often misspelled as "Dietmar Jakobs".

Accident

His career ended very badly at 20 September 1989 in the game between Hamburger SV and Werder Bremen. When an attacker overlobbed his goalie, Jakobs lunged feet-first into his goal and scraped the ball off the line. However, he fell into the hooks fixing the goal to the ground (in that time, the hooks were not stipulated to be under the earth). He hung there for 20 agonising minutes, the hook dug deeply into his flesh. Finally, the team doctor cut the hooks from his back with a scalpel. With this, the nerves in his back were cut. Because of this horrible accident, he was forced to end his career. However, he regards himself lucky, as the hook missed his spine be a mere two inches.

Today he is an insurance broker in Norderstedt, near Hamburg.
