The Top Ten

1 Franz Beckenbauer Franz Beckenbauer Franz Anton Beckenbauer is a German former professional footballer and manager. Early in his playing career he was nicknamed Der Kaiser because of his elegant style, dominance and leadership on the field, and also as his first name "Franz" is reminiscent of the Austrian emperors.

Kaiser Franz is without doubt one of the best players of all time.

I love gerd muller and every other German. But der kaiser is indeed the best.

Beckenbauer is definitely no. 1

Best of the best - Metal_Treasure

2 Gerd Müller

4 Mesut Ozil Mesut Ozil Mesut Özil is a German professional footballer who plays for Premier League club Arsenal. He is considered to be one of the best players in the world. Özil plays mostly as an attacking midfielder, but can also be deployed as a winger.

Ozil is the only player that has come closer to filling zidane's shoes. By the end of the career, he will become one of the greatest footballers ever.

You guys are racist and stupid! He made Germany win against Argentina! Argentina is my favourite country and lionel Messi is also the best! But Mario is the worst! Argentina lost because of Mario scored more goals than them and Argentina almost beat them but they just lost! It was all Mario's fault! I hate him SO MUCH!

Great potential to become the best, very talented

Great player with great ability!

Mario Götze is a legend. Very underestimated.
