3. 1972 – 2 points
Franz Beckenbauer has been voted as one of the best defensive midfielders ever and was a key member in West Germany and Bayern Munich’s success as much as his team mate Muller. 1972 was one of his best seasons as Bayern won the Bundesliga and he won the UEFA Euro 1972.
Muller had another amazing season for club & country while Netzer was having some of his best seasons with Borussia Mönchengladbach, and was also part of the same team that would win the Euro with Muller & Beckenbauer.
