Bernd Schuster is one of those players who had the rare privilege of playing for both Real Madrid and Barcelona in La Liga. He also briefly coached the former during the 2007/08 campaign.

Admittedly, though, the 59-year-old’s inclusion is a bit of a controversial call given that he never really excelled for Germany.

In fact, Schuster only made 21 appearances for the national team across a five-year spell. Although he did help them win Euro 1980 before a bust-up with head coach Jupp Derwall resulted in his retirement in 1984.
