His domineering presence certainly inspired success, as during the 14 season he spent with Bayern the club won eight Bundesliga titles, six DFB-Pokals, the UEFA Champions League in 2001 and the Intercontinental Cup.
Kahn was equally brilliant for his national side, not only winning the prestigious German footballer of the year award in 2000 and 2001 but also being one of the few keepers to receive the Golden Ball award for being the best player of the 2002 World Cup.
