Thomas Allofs (born November 17, 1959 in Düsseldorf ) is a former German soccer player .


Club career

Together with his brother Klaus Allofs , the striker played for Fortuna Düsseldorf for years . In 1982 he left Fortuna, with which he won the DFB Cup twice and was once in the final of the European Cup Winners' Cup , and went to the Palatinate for 1. FC Kaiserslautern . After three years, the successful attacker moved to 1. FC Köln , where he was initially able to play again with his brother Klaus. In 1989 he moved abroad as the newly crowned Bundesliga top scorer (together with Bayern player Roland Wohlfarth ) and moved to RC Strasbourg in France, who had just been relegated from Ligue 1 . In Ligue 2 , Thomas Allofs scored 2 goals in 11 games for the Alsatian, but he returned to Germany in the winter of 1989/90 and started playing again for Fortuna Düsseldorf in the Bundesliga from February. Because of an injury, he ended his career in 1992.

National team

He played a total of 25 international matches , but only two in the senior team. His first A appearance in 1985 against Portugal (substitute for Pierre Littbarski ) - the Germans lost a World Cup qualifying game for the first time - was followed by the second only three years later against what was then the Soviet Union , where he played for a full 90 minutes. The German team won this encounter 1-0 through an own goal by Schmatovalenko.

After the active career

Together with his father-in-law, he runs the company Lück & Allofs, a recycling company with 35 employees in Düsseldorf, and was a board member at Fortuna Düsseldorf until October 2013. He is also the managing director of the player consultancy AW Management - Allofs & Westerbeek GbR.
