Stefan Effenberg (born 2 August 1968) is a retired German footballer.

A central midfielder, he possessed leadership skills, powerful shooting ability, physical strength, but also a fearsome and controversial character.

In the German first division alone where he represented most notably Bayern Munich, in six seasons in two different spells Effenberg collected 109 yellow cards, an all-time worst at the time of his retirement.

He played for Germany on more than 30 occasions in a career which was cut short after a run-in with the management representing the nation in one World Cup and one European Championship.
