Karl-Heinz "Kalli" Feldkamp (born June 2, 1934 in Oberhausen ) is a former German soccer player and coach .

As a player, he played in the 1950s and 1960s with SC Rot-Weiß Oberhausen in the Oberliga and the second division 316 games in which he scored 42 goals.

With 408 Bundesliga games as a coach, he was one of the most experienced in his field and won the German championship with 1. FC Kaiserslautern in 1991 and was the only coach to win the DFB Cup with three different clubs . He was also successful with Al Ahly and Galatasaray SK in the championships of Egypt and Turkey .



Feldkamp made his debut in the fighting team of Rot-Weiß Oberhausen, who played in the 2nd League West after relegation in 1951, in the 1952/53 season. From the 1954/55 season he finally had a regular seat that he would not lose until 1965. In 1957 the greatest success came and Oberhausen rose as second back to the league . The 4th and 3rd place in 1961 and 1962 were the best places here. After the introduction of the Bundesliga, RWO took a place in the second-class Regionalliga West , where the Oberhausen team stayed in the upper midfield for the next few years. After the 1966/67 season, in which he was only used three times, he ended his playing career. In total, he scored 42 goals in 316 league games for RWO.

Started as a coach in the regional league

As a club coach, he began to work in the 1972/73 season at SG Wattenscheid 09 , where he replaced Friedhelm Schulte . At SG, he managed the transformation of the club into a full profit. In this context, he himself ended his employment relationship with an Oberhausen steelworks that had existed for 23 years. The greatest success was the championship of the Regionalliga West in 1974, which then finally secured the qualification for the newly introduced 2nd Bundesliga, at that time still divided into north and south seasons. In the first season there, the SG reached seventh place, which some who also had hopes for promotion to the Bundesliga did not see it as entirely satisfactory. The star of the team that season was the Argentinian national player Carlos Babington, who was brought to the club by the patron Klaus Steilmann, which attracted nationwide attention . At the same time, the Bundesliga top scorer from 1971 Lothar Kobluhn came to Wattenscheid. At the same time, however, the highly talented young "asparagus tarzan" Hans Bongartz was drawn to FC Schalke 04 for a transfer fee of 770,000 marks .

After the 14th matchday of the 1975/76 season he was, lying in eighth place, replaced by Helmut Witte , who ended the season there. In December, Feldkamp moved to league competitor DJK Gütersloh, who was threatened with relegation, where he replaced Rudi Schlott . Feldkamp couldn't make a difference either, the DJK got down. Feldkamp was at the beginning of the 1976/77 season coach at Arminia Bielefeld in the 2nd League North, where he was the successor to Erhard Ahmann . He led the previous year ninth to second place in the Bundesliga. That led to two games for promotion to the Bundesliga against Südstafflzweit TSV 1860 Munich . His team with Uli Stein in goal and Ewald Lienen and Norbert Eilenfeldt as other well-known players won the first game 4-0. "This win is by no means a license for promotion to the Bundesliga. On June 4th we will face a hot battle in Munich," he said after the game. And he was right: Arminia lost the second leg in the Munich Olympic Stadium by the same amount. The 60s won the playoff in the Frankfurt Waldstadion 2-0. In his second season in Bielefeld, Feldkamp did better and came first, which saved him promotion games.

Third places with Kaiserslautern - Cup victories with Bayer 05 Uerdingen and Eintracht Frankfurt

He then moved to 1. FC Kaiserslautern , for whom he worked from 1978 to 1982. Under Feldkamp, ​​1. FCK reached third place in the Bundesliga twice (also autumn champions 1978/79) and in 1981 the DFB Cup final which was lost 3-1 to Eintracht Frankfurt . A year later, the club retired only in the semi-finals of the UEFA Cup against IFK Gothenburg in the competition with two wins in the finals against the then European top team:;: (2 aet 1 1 1). Hamburger SV should win . Before that, the "red devils" sensationally eliminated Real Madrid with a 5-0 win on the Betzenberg after they lost the first leg at the Bernabéu Stadium 3-1. In 1981 and 1982 he was fourth in the Bundesliga.

Then Feldkamp moved briefly and with little success to Borussia Dortmund (1982/83) and again to Arminia Bielefeld (1983/84). From 1984 to 1987 he coached the Bayer 05 Uerdingen team , with whom he won the DFB Cup in 1985 with a 2-1 win at the Berlin Olympic Stadium against FC Bayern Munich . This was Bayern's first defeat in a DFB Cup final after seven wins. In the following year, the Uerdingen advanced to the European Cup semi-finals, where after two defeats against Atlético Madrid they were the final destination. In the quarter-finals there was a miracle from the Grotenburg : the game against the GDR representative Dynamo Dresden , in which a five-goal deficit was made up in one half (first leg in Dresden: 0: 2; second leg: 1: 3, final result : 7: 3).

This was followed by a year at Eintracht Frankfurt (1987 to August 1988), in which he won the DFB Cup for the second time (1-0 against VfL Bochum ) ( DFB Cup 1988 ). Then Feldkamp moved to Egypt as a trainer to al Ahly Cairo .

Championship title and cup victory with Kaiserslautern and championship with Galatasaray

At the beginning of 1990 he returned for two years to Kaiserslautern, which initially avoided relegation under him and won the final of the DFB Cup in 1990 3-2 against Werder Bremen in the same season . In 1991 he achieved his greatest success with the championship title in Kaiserslautern. With 48:20 points, defending champion FC Bayern Munich (45:23 points) was relegated to second place. In the 1991/92 season he reached fifth place. In the European Champions Cup, Feldkamp's team was just eliminated from the eventual winner, FC Barcelona under Johan Cruijff, with 0: 2 and 3: 1.

For the 1992/93 season Feldkamp moved to Turkey to cup winners Galatasaray Istanbul where he inherited Mustafa Denizli in office. With the star Hakan Şükür , the ex-Bundesliga hero Falko Götz and the former Bayern amateur Uğur Tütüneker , the now almost 59-year-old Feldkamp immediately won the title. Feldkamp now withdrew from the business and recommended his assistant Reiner Hollmann as his successor when he won the title in Kaiserslautern . This should succeed in defending his title.

Return to the coaching bench after a seven-year break

After a seven-year break, Beşiktaş reactivated Istanbul Feldkamp for the last ten games of the 1998/99 season . There he succeeded the Englishman John Toshack and the interim coach Fuat Yaman . Beşiktaş was five points behind first place at the time. Under Feldkamp's leadership, Beşiktaş achieved eight wins and two draws, but was only able to reduce the deficit to two points in the final accounts, which was enough for second place and thus participation in the Champions League qualification. His successor, the "Walz von der Pfalz" Hans-Peter Briegel should fail there against Hapoel Tel Aviv , but was able to repeat second place, this time four points behind first place.

In the mid-1990s, Feldkamp worked for ZDF , for which he co-commented alongside Dieter Kürten on international matches for the German national team as well as World Cup and European Championship games.

From 1996 to 1997 he was on the supervisory board of 1. FC Kaiserslautern . In 2002 he was brought into play as sports director at FCK by member of the supervisory board Hans-Peter Briegel , but did not find a majority on the supervisory board.

For the 2007/08 season Feldkamp was brought back to active coaching after an eight-year break this time and was coach of Galatasaray for the second time. This time he was the successor of the Belgian Erik Gerets , who did not get past third place in the preseason. On April 5, 2008, just before Matchday 29, he resigned from office. Galatasaray - where the now 36-year-old veteran Hakan Şükür , who still scored eleven times, the ex-Schalke Brazilian Lincoln Cássio de Souza Soares and the Cameroonian Rigobert Song were among the most famous players - was two points behind local rivals and at the time Defending champion Fenerbahçe . His successor Cevat Güler was able to more than make up for this deficit and after six wins in a row, including a 1-0 win over Fenerbahçe, was six points ahead of the champions in May.

On November 26th, 2008 he returned to Galatasaray Istanbul, this time as Technical Director. He should form a partnership with Michael Skibbe, who has meanwhile been hired as the coach of the reigning champions . Skibbe was released at the end of February, Feldkamp worked with the new coach Bülent Korkmaz until the end of the season in May 2009 . The team finished fifth and missed participation in the UEFA Cup .
