Beckenbauer in the Museum

A couple of articles worn by Der Kaiser caught my attention in the German Football Museum caught my eye. There was a lot about East German football and how people still followed teams in the a West. As well as the well known stories of people standing on the East side of the wall hoping to hear cheers from Hertha was the story of this Bayern Munich shirt, worn by Franz, signed by the team and smuggled to a fan club over the border.

More unusually was this coat given to Beckenbauer by the Uzbekistan Football Association in the run up to the World Cup.
