Manfred Vogel (born August 9, 1947 ) is a former German soccer player. 1974/75 he was the top scorer in the league in the GDR .

Athletic career

Vogel played in the third-rate regional league until 1970 , the company sports club Motor Koethen . The regular striker was delegated at the beginning of the 1970/71 season to the football performance center of the Halle district , the GDR upper division club Halleschen FC Chemie . Although at the age of 23 he had long outgrown the junior division, the leap from third division to the first team of a football club initially seemed too big for him. Manfred Vogel made a name for himself next to 76 minutes in the league in his first year after moving from Koethen to Halle, initially with the HFC reserve . The second team was part of the second-class league in the early 1970s . There the 1.80 meter tall and 72 kilogram heavy bird clearly demonstrated his skills as a goalscorer and was particularly successful in the 1972/73 season when he was top scorer with 17 goals in the 22-round league season C.

For the first team of the HFC this season was extremely poor, because last year's sixth had to be relegated as bottom of the league and compete in the GDR league in 1973/74 . Now the club responsible attacker moved Vogel, who at that time had already sniffed first division air in 18 top division games, finally moved up into the first team in the summer. Vogel quickly found himself in the team, which had only slightly changed in terms of personnel, but had to do without captain Bernd Bransch (who moved to FC Carl Zeiss Jena in the World Cup year ), and with 18 goals was again the number one scorer in the relay. His team was promoted to promotion by return post the upper league.

Despite Bransch's return the following year , the HFC naturally struggled as a promoted team and ended up in eleventh place at the end of the season with just one point ahead of a relegation place. The Halle team didn't have to hide with their goal quota, because with 37 goals they were just as successful as the fifth in the table. Manfred Vogel, who scored almost half of the HFC goals with his 17 goals, played a decisive role. The trained locksmith was not only the most successful goalscorer of his team, but also won the top scorer's crown in the GDR league in the 1974/75 season. He also benefited from the fact that the most successful GDR goalscorer, Hans-Jürgen Kreische from SG Dynamo Dresden , was injured for a long time (five goals in nine games as in 1973/74).

In the 1975/76 season , Vogel was replaced by his striker colleague Werner Peter as the best HFC goalscorer, but in the following season 1976/77 he again scored the most goals for his team with twelve goals and thus landed third on the top division scorer list . His scoring danger in these years also made him interesting for the DFV selection coach . In 1977 she helped him to two missions in the B national team of the GDR . Before he left the Hallescher Klub in 1979, Vogel increased his upper tier account to a total of 57 hits. Since he had played in 133 league games, he achieved a goal rate of 0.43 per game.

At the age of 32, Manfred Vogel moved to the top division competitor FC Rot-Weiß Erfurt at the beginning of the 1979/80 season , who needed a replacement for the retired Hans-Günter Schröder and Horst Weißhaupt . With his new team, Vogel reached the final in the GDR Cup , where they lost 3-1 after extra time against FC Carl Zeiss Jena. Vogel had been called up on the left midfield position, to which he had been repurposed during the season. In the league season 1981/82 Vogel gave his strike in the top division of GDR football . He had added another 43 inserts to his league record in Erfurt, so that he came to a total of 176 league games. He was only able to increase his goals account by five hits in Erfurt, which means that he has 62 goals in the major league.

Manfred Vogel played in two semi-series ( 1981/82 and 1982/83 ) for the GDR second division club BSG Chemie Industriewerke Ilmenau , before being on the squad for a year and a half at BSG Motor Rudisleben . After the Rudisleben team as seventh in season E 1983/84 missed the leap into the league consisting of only two seasons from the summer of 1984, Manfred Vogel's track in the higher-class East German football is lost.
