Günther Schäfer (born June 9, 1962 in Waiblingen) is a German football coach and a former player.

In his sixteen years playing for VfB Stuttgart, the defender gained the status of being one of the most popular players ever to play for that Swabian Bundesliga side and one of the few players to earn two German championship titles with them. The most spectacular and well-known play of Schäfer's career was to clear a ball from the goal line by a bicycle kick, risking injury, in the final match of the 1991-92 season vs. Bayer Leverkusen, which Stuttgart went on to win 2-1, thus gaining the German championship title that season.

Today, Schäfer is the head coach of VfBs "football school".
