Dietmar Hamann

Where is Dietmar Hamann now?

Ever reliable and very consistent, Liverpool legend Didi Hamann finally retired from playing in 2011 after a short spell as player-coach at MK Dons.

Playing professionally for 19 years he finished his career having made 538 appearances for six different clubs winning the Bundesliga twice and the UEFA Cup with Bayern Munich and the FA Cup and League Cup twice, the UEFA Cup and Champions League with Liverpool.

He was also a mainstay of the Germany national side between 1997 and 2005 making 59 appearances and representing them in the 1998 and 2002 FIFA World Cup finals as well as the 2000 European Championships.

Having already spent a year coaching at MK Dons, Hamann joined Leicester City as first-team coach under Sven-Goran Eriksson in February 20011, but left just five months later when he was appointed manager of newly-relegated Conference side Stockport County.

Again, this was a short-lived role and he resigned after four months when a proposed takeover failed to materialise.

Hamann has now stopped coaching and now works in the media as a highly-respected pundit for a number of broadcasters including LFC TV, Sky Sports, RTE and the BBC.

He has also released a book called The Didi Man: My Love Affair with Liverpool which went onto become a Sunday Times bestseller.

Still maintaining links with the Reds, he represents the club as an ambassador and plays for their masters team which play charity matches across the globe.
