Club careerEdit

At club level, Möller played for Eintracht Frankfurt (1985–87, 1990–92, 2003–04), Borussia Dortmund (1988–90, 1994–2000), Juventus (1992–94), and Schalke 04 (2000–03).

In his first spell with Borussia Dortmund, he won the DFB-Pokal during the 1988–89 season. After moving to Italian side Juventus, he won the UEFA Cup in 1993, beating out his former club, Borussia Dortmund, 6–1 on aggregate, with Möller scoring one of the goals and providing three assists across both legs of the final. Upon his return to Dortmund, he won several domestic titles with the club, as well as the Champions League in 1997, once again beating his former team, Juventus on this occasion, 3–1, and providing two assists during the match; he followed up the victory with the Intercontinental Cup later that year. With Schalke, he won the DFB-Pokal twice more in 2001 and 2002.

International careerEdit

With the German national team, Möller won the 1990 World Cup and Euro 96. For Germany, Möller was capped 85 times, scoring 29 goals. Other than the two major tournament victories, he also played for his country at the 1994 and 1998 World Cups, as well as at Euro 92, where his team reached the final. Möller did not play in the final of the 1990 World Cup and was suspended for the final of Euro 96 after he was booked in the semi-final against England. In the resulting shoot out, following a 1–1 draw after extra-time, Möller scored the winning penalty, which he celebrated by mimicking the bravado of the pose struck earlier in the shoot out when Paul Gascoigne had converted his penalty.

After retirementEdit

In June 2007, Möller started his career as football manager at Viktoria Aschaffenburg, playing in the Oberliga Hessen. From 2008 to 2011, he was athletic director for Kickers Offenbach.

Möller features in EA Sports' FIFA video game series; he was on the cover of the German edition of FIFA 98.[1]

On 20 October 2015 Möller was given a job for the Hungary national football team. Here he worked as an assistant for Bernd Storck. They played together for Borussia Dortmund when Dortmund won the West German Cup in the 1988–89 season.

Style of playEdit

A talented, versatile, and complete advanced playmaker, Möller was known for his range of passing, creativity, vision, and technical ability, as well as for being capable of playing the ball first time and striking powerfully with both feet. In addition to his creative abilities, he also known for his goalscoring and his ability in the air, which also allowed him to be deployed in more advanced roles, as a supporting striker or even as a winger on occasion.[2][3]
