Josef "Jupp" Derwall (10 March 1927 in Würselen, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany - 26 June 2007 in St. Ingbert, Saarland, Germany) was a German football (soccer) player and coach. Derwall was manager of the Germany national football team between 1978 and 1984, winning the 1980 European Football Championship and reaching the final of the 1982 World Cup. His hairdo provided the basis for his nickname "Chieftain Silver Curl" (Häuptling Silberlocke).

Playing career

The midfielder and forward started with in 1938 with Rhenania Würselen. Later Derwall played for Alemannia Aachen and Fortuna Düsseldorf in the western division of the five-way split first German league. With Aachen he reached the German Cup final in 1953 where he scored one goal at the 1-2 defeat at the hands of Rot-Weiss Essen. Five years later he reached the cup final with Düsseldorf, which was lost 3-4 against VfB Stuttgart. In 1954 he was also called twice to play for West Germany[1] but was not selected for the squad which won the 1954 FIFA World Cup.

Early coaching years

After retiring as a player, Derwall took up coaching first in Switzerland with FC Biel (1959-1961) and FC Schaffhausen (1961-1962).[2] With Fortuna Düsseldorf he once more reached the cup final, then, in 1962, losing to 1. FC Nuremberg 1-2 after extra time. Afterwards he became coach of the regional association of Saarland for six years.

In 1970 he was appointed as successor to Udo Lattek as the German national team's assistant coach under the legendary Helmut Schön. At the 1972 Summer Olympics he was responsible for the German team, taking it into the last eight.

Derwall served as Schön's assistant until after the 1978 World Cup. When Schön retired from coaching, also in light of the achievements in the tournament, Derwall was chosen to take his place as manager of Germany. His major rivals for this appointment were his coaching staff colleague Erich Ribbeck and Helmut Benthaus, then chief with the reigning German champions VfB Stuttgart, who received no release from his contract.

At the helm of Germany

Derwall's first major tournament as manager was Euro 80 in Italy, and under his guidance Germany won the championship in impressive fashion, winning four out of their five games and finishing with the tournament's top scorer in Klaus Allofs. Confidence was high going into the 1982 World Cup in Spain. Derwall was heard to have said before the first match against Algeria, "If we don't beat Algeria I'll take the next train home!" As things turned out he didn't stick to his promise. After a shock 1-2 defeat by Algeria in the first match, Derwall's Germany regained their composure and progressed all the way to the final after some tough matches, including the memorable semi-final against France, where the Germans came back from 1-3 down to tie 3-3 and win on penalties. In the Final itself, Germany lost 3-1 to Italy. The stars of this side were Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Paul Breitner.

Notwithstanding this setback, Derwall remained a highly-regarded coach and Germany were still counted among the favourites for Euro 84, but their performance in France was not impressive and Derwall's team were eliminated in the first round. Public opinion in Germany turned against Derwall rapidly. It reached an absolute low point when people would begin to yell angrily at Derwall had they spotted him in public. Derwall in the end of what amounted to a public campaign was forced to resign his position, being replaced by the hitherto-untested Franz Beckenbauer who acted as team manager.

Renewing the game in Turkey

Derwall then shocked observers by turning down several job offers in the Bundesliga in favour of accepting the manager's position at Turkish club Galatasaray. At the time, Turkish football was not well regarded in Europe, and Turkish clubs had never made any real impression on the international scene. The arrival of Derwall, an internationally-respected and experienced coach, changed this perception, and his tenure at Galatasaray is often credited with having helped spark the revival in the fortunes of Turkish football. As well as winning one national championship and one Turkish Cup, Derwall's time in Istanbul also involved his introducing modern Western European training techniques and tactical ideas to the Turkish game. Therefore he's regarded as the revolutionizer of Turkish football.[3] Two of Turkey's most respected coaches, Fatih Terim and Mustafa Denizli, both trained under Derwall during his time in Turkey, have been quick to praise Derwall's influence.

Derwall retired from coaching with Galatasaray in 1987 after helping his club become league champions (for the first time since 1973); despite speculation that he might take over as manager of the Turkey national football team, he chose instead to return to Germany and enjoy his retirement. He was happy to see that the spark he lit grew enormously, with Galatasaray reaching the Semi-Finals of the 1988–89 European Cup (predecessor of the UEFA Champions League) and winning both the UEFA Cup and UEFA Super Cup in 2000.

His work in Turkey was also considered a major contribution to German-Turkish relations and was honoured with an honorary doctorate of the University of Hacettepe in Ankara and the German Cross of Merit 1st Class (Bundesverdienstkreuz).

Health Problems and Death

Derwall died after a heart attack in Germany on 26 June 2007. He had previously had a heart attack back in 1991.


Galatasaray gave his name to their training ground after his death.
