Club career

Allofs began playing professionally for home team Fortuna Düsseldorf, in 1975. He started his career as an attacking midfielder, and scored nearly 100 overall goals for the club, helping it two consecutive German cup wins, while often playing upfront with sibling Thomas. In 1978–79, he finished as the league's topscorer, and also scored four in eight in Fortuna's Cup Winners' Cup runner-up run, including one in the final, an extra time loss to FC Barcelona.[1]

In 1981, Allofs joined 1. FC Köln, where he continued scoring at an excellent rate. In 1985–86, he only netted seven times in the league, but added nine in as many matches in the UEFA Cup, as the team lost the final on aggregate to Real Madrid. In the following season, he re-teamed with Thomas, then left the country during three years, playing in France with Olympique de Marseille.

Allofs retired after three seasons with SV Werder Bremen, still managing to figure regularly. In the 1991-92 Cup Winners' Cup he scored in the final against AS Monaco, in an eventual 2-0 win.[2] Having finished playing at nearly 37, he played a total of 424 matches in the league, totalling 177 goals. Sharing his goalscoring record with Dieter Müller, he left the game as the competition's alltime 7th scorer.

In 1999, Allofs was hired temporarily as general manager and coach of Fortuna Düsseldorf. After leaving this position, he left for and old acquaintance, Werder Bremen, going on to work, for over a decade, as the club's general manager.[3][4]

International career

Allofs played for Germany a total of 56 times, and acquired 17 goals. His first match came on 11 October 1978 in Prague, against Czechoslovakia, a 4-3 friendly win.

Allofs went on feature for the nation at UEFA Euro 1980 (where he scored three times to top the goalcharts, all in a 3-2 group stage win against Holland), UEFA Euro 1984 and 1986 FIFA World Cup. Pushed to the sidelines by emergent Rudi Völler and Jürgen Klinsmann, he retired from international play on 31 March 1988, scoring in a friendly with Sweden.
