Keegan had the most prolific of his three years at Hamburg, and Hamburg began what would be a title winning season in 1978. The 1978 vote saw him beat Hans Krankl, who many regard as the finest Austrian footballer. He had successful stints at Barcelona and Rapid Wien, and the 1978 season saw him score a lot of goals with the Catalan outfit as well as win the Copa del Rey.
