Rüdiger "Abi" Abramczik (born February 18, 1956 in Gelsenkirchen-Erle ) is a former German football player and coach as well as a player in the national team . During his active time at FC Schalke 04 , the offensive player was regarded as an outstanding right winger and flank giver (" god of flanks ").
The son of a locksmith was discovered by Berni Klodt at the Gelsenkirchen district association Erle 08 . At the age of ten Abramczik moved to FC Schalke 04 . In various youth national teams he made 23 appearances.
On August 11, 1973 Abramczik made his debut in the Bundesliga at 3-0 in Stuttgart and remained the youngest player in the history of the House of Lords for almost three years before Jürgen Friedl made his first appearance for Eintracht Frankfurt in 1976 and thus in his capacity as the youngest Bundesliga player. Abramczik formed a storm duo with Klaus Fischer , as whose "template provider" he was considered. He scored his first goal five weeks before his 18th birthday in a 5-2 win against VfL Bochum .
Because of financial problems, Schalke sold his "street footballer" Abramczik to Borussia Dortmund in 1980 . At BVB, he and Manfred Burgsmüller formed one of the most dangerous strikers in the following years.
After further stints at 1. FC Nürnberg , Galatasaray Istanbul ( Turkish Cup winner 1985) and Rot-Weiß Oberhausen , he returned to Schalke in 1987 and played four more games as a Libero . In total, he came to 316 Bundesliga games, in which he scored 77 goals. He let his career end with Wormatia Worms and FC Gütersloh .
In 1977 he made his international debut in the DFB-A national team in a 5-0 win over Northern Ireland . A year earlier, Abramczik had already celebrated his debut in the B selection , for which he appeared three times.
He played 19 times in the German national team until 1979 and scored two goals. He also took part in the World Cup in Argentina in 1978, where he scored a goal in the second final round in a 2-2 draw against the Netherlands. In total, he played three games for the DFB selection at the 1978 World Cup . His early departure from the national team was linked to a dispute with the then DFB President Hermann Neuberger .
Although he was financially independent, Abramczik returned to the football business and coached, among others, 1. FC Saarbrücken , Lewski Sofia and FC Carinthia in Austria. Until 2006 he was also an amateur trainer. On August 3, 2008 he took over the Latvian vice-champion Metalurgs Liepaja and he led him to the Latvian championship in 2009. The contract, which expired on December 31, 2010, was not extended.
On March 23, 2012 Abramczik became sporting director at KSV Hessen Kassel . However, he only held this post until June 30, 2012.
His success in football made Abramczik financially independent. In his hometown of Gelsenkirchen he gradually bought over 30 houses and apartments, and he also ran a dye works and a sports shop. He runs a travel agency together with Manfred Burgsmüller and Peter Neururer .
