Rudolf Schlott

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rudolf "Rudi" Schlott (born January 18, 1927 , † November 4, 2014 in Haan ) was a German football coach .


Schlott was in charge of 1. FC Köln from July 1, 1972 to September 6, 1973, after having worked as Hennes Weisweiler's assistant at Borussia Mönchengladbach for a long time . In 1973 he achieved a remarkable 2nd place in the Bundesliga - albeit eleven points behind FC Bayern Munich - and also the legendary 1973 DFB Cup final in the Düsseldorf Rheinstadion between the people of Domstadt and Borussia Mönchengladbach, which the Mönchengladbachers scored after a spectacular run from Günter Netzer won 2-1 after extra time. In the following season already after the 7th match day due to unsuccessfulness - four defeats, two draws and only one win; Cologne was 16th - sacked and replaced by Zlatko "Tschik" Čajkovski , who finished fifth with FC.

This was followed by an engagement with the second division club DJK Gütersloh which he led to 14th place in the twenties league in 1974/75. In the 1975/76 season he was, lying on a relegation zone, replaced by Karl-Heinz Feldkamp before the end of the first half of the season, but he was unable to change the eventual relegation. This ended Schlott's career in professional business. He returned to his learned profession as a sports teacher.
