Career

Sammer played for his hometown club Dynamo Dresden from 1987 to 1990, the club his father, Klaus had played for and managed. He was one of the first notable East German players to join a Western club after the German re-unification when he signed with VfB Stuttgart in 1990 (the first being Andreas Thom, who joined Bayer Leverkusen from BFC Dynamo). He then went on to play with Inter Milan (1992-1993), and Borussia Dortmund (1993-1998). He won two East German championships with Dynamo Dresden (1989, 1990), and three German championships, (1992 with VfB Stuttgart, 1995 and 1996 with Borussia Dortmund). During his time in Dortmund he also won the UEFA Champions League in 1997. Sammer also scored the last ever goal for the East Germany football team before re-unification.

After a serious knee injury forced him to retire in 1998, Sammer became head coach for Borussia Dortmund in 2000, leading the team to another German championship in 2002. His team reached the UEFA Cup final the same year but lost 2:3 against Feyenoord. Sammer coached VfB Stuttgart for the 2004-05 season, but left after only one year with the club.

On 1 April 2006, he was appointed technical director of German Football Association (DFB), on a five year contract. The position is new in the DFB. It includes responsibility for the national youth teams, focusing on young talents between the ages of eleven and eighteen, as well as incorporating the latest developments in sports science into the DFB's training theories. Sammer is also expected to work on a tactical system for all of Germany's national sides in close co-operation with national coach Joachim Löw.
