Who's in Bayern Munich's Treble Reunion squad?

Find out more about the 24 Bayern Munich legends that will take on Manchester United in our Treble Reunion match on Sunday (kick-off 15:00 BST).

22 BERND DREHER (GOALKEEPER)
Being back-up to Oliver Kahn was no easy feat, but Dreher played the role of understudy perfectly during a lengthy Bayern career, stepping up capably whenever called upon. He didn’t make any appearances during their ’98/99 European campaign, but was an unused substitute at the Nou Camp when they faced United in the final.

22 HANS-JORG BUTT (GOALKEEPER)
Signed from Benfica in 2008, the German returned to the Bundesliga to compete for the no.1 jersey at Bayern. Butt remained in Bavaria until retiring at the end of the 2011/12 season and later kept goal in the 2015 Legends match at Old Trafford.

2 MARKUS BABBEL (CENTRE/FULL-BACK)
The centre-back rose through the Bayern youth system, before leaving to develop his game with Stuttgart for two seasons. But he returned to Munich for a glorious second stint with his alma mater, and finished his Bayern career having amassed nine major honours. He then moved to England in 2000, where he enjoyed spells for both Liverpool and Blackburn.

3 HANS PFLUGLER (CENTRE/FULL-BACK)
The stalwart left-back was a fixture in Bayern Munich’s successful team of the 1980s, winning five Bundesliga titles in the space of six seasons, three German Cups and featuring in the side that finished runners-up in the 1987 European Cup. Beginning his career in 1979, he didn’t hang up his boots until 2005, 26 years later!

4 SAMMY KUFFOUR (CENTRE-BACK)
Kuffour was just 15 when Serie A’s Torino brought him to Europe. His potential was quickly identified by Bayern, who took him to Germany just two years later, and the tough-tackling centre-back picked up 14 major honours before returning to Italy with Roma in 2005.

5 KLAUS AUGENTHALER (CENTRE-BACK)
An outstanding defender who could read the game perfectly, FC Bayern Legends’ joint player-manager was a real leader for club and country. Nicknamed ‘The Eye’ due to his vision in passing out from the back, he was a loyal one-club man who has been recognised as one of the greatest players in the club’s illustrious history.

5 DANIEL VAN BUYTEN (CENTRE-BACK)
The giant Belgian centre-back is no stranger to Manchester, having had a short spell on loan with City in 2004, but he enjoyed most success with Bayern. An eight-year career with the club included four league-and-cup doubles, a 2013 Champions League final win over rivals Borussia Dortmund at Wembley and Club World Cup success later that year.

6 MARTIN DEMICHELIS (CENTRE-BACK)
A rugged central defender who won 11 major titles with Bayern, he was converted from a holding midfield role by wily coach Ottmar Hitzfeld. He earned the reputation as a hard tackler and fine organiser, and was part of a well-drilled unit.

10 LOTHAR MATTHAUS (MIDFIELDER/SWEEPER)
One of German football’s all-time greats, Lothar was a serial champion in two spells with Bayern, and also enjoyed a glorious stint with Internazionale in Italy. By the time of the 1999 final, the 38-year-old midfielder had become a distinguished sweeper. Post-retirement, he's fulfilled coaching roles in Austria, Serbia, Brazil and Israel, and also managed the national teams of Bulgaria and Hungary.

6 CHRISTIAN NERLINGER (MIDFIELDER)
A left-footed defensive midfielder with an eye for goal, Nerlinger helped Bayern to two league titles and the UEFA Cup before returning to his hometown club Borussia Dortmund. He was later Bayern’s sporting director between 2009-2012.

7 MICHAEL STERNKOPF (WINGER)
In 1990, Bayern became the fifth of six clubs on Sternkopf’s CV, and although the start of that decade was a relatively tough spell for the Bavarians, the wideman did help them win the Bundesliga in 1994 – the only title of his career.

8 MARKUS SCHUPP (MIDFIELDER)

Schupp was a midfield regular in the Bayern side that clinched the 1993/94 Bundesliga. That season, they finished just a point ahead of Kaiserslautern, Schupp’s old club. He made his name there in the ’80s, helping them to the title and a German Cup.

Lothar Matthaus spent 13 years at Bayern Munich over two spells, scoring 100 goals in all competitions.

11 STEFAN EFFENBERG (MIDFIELDER)
Effenberg is widely regarded as one of the greatest midfielders and captains in the club’s history. He re-joined Bayern in 1998 and established himself as a key figure in their revival following the 1999 Champions League final loss.

12 ZE ROBERTO (MIDFIELDER)
The versatile Brazilian starred as a defensively-minded midfielder at Bayern. Spells at Bayer Leverkusen and Hamburg bookended his two stints in Bavaria.

16 ANDREAS OTTL (MIDFIELDER)
Munich-born Ottl joined Bayern in 1996, and worked his way up through the ranks for almost a decade before making his first-team bow in 2005. Only 34, the defensive midfielder’s fitness levels could prove useful today.

16 MARCEL WITECZEK (MIDFIELDER)
A lively, attacking midfielder, Witeczek would go on to spend six years with Borussia Monchengladbach, but it was with Bayern where he claimed his only winner’s medals: two league titles and one UEFA Cup in the mid-’90s.

17 THORSTEN FINK (MIDFIELDER)
A late substitute against United in the 1999 final, the classy playmaker was a regular at Bayern for five years prior to his retirement. Since then, he’s managed clubs in Germany, Cyprus and Switzerland.

9 LUCA TONI (FORWARD)
Toni didn’t play top-flight football until his mid-twenties, but he’d become a prolific striker for Palermo and Fiorentina ahead of his 2007 move to Bayern. At 6ft 4in, Toni was – and still is! – a major aerial threat. It's also his 42nd birthday on the day of the Treble Reunion match! Happy birthday, Luca!

9 GIOVANE ELBER (FORWARD)
Top scorer in all but one of his six full seasons at Bayern, Elber was a predatory forward who scored three times against United – twice in the 2-2 draw against Bayern during the sides’ first meeting in the Treble season. His international career was somewhat limited due to stiff competition, but he was pivotal to four Bundesliga successes and Bayern's 2001 Champions League triumph.

10 ROY MAKAAY (FORWARD)
Highly confident in front of goal with either foot, Makaay’s stats make some reading: 314 goals in 636 club appearances for Vitesse, Tenerife, Deportivo, Bayern and Feyenoord.

11 IVICA OLIC (FOWARD)
Fast and hard working, the Croatia legend could be a dangerman today, having only left the club’s playing staff in 2012. He was twice a Champions League runner-up for Bayern (2010 and 2012).

13 PAULO SERGIO (FORWARD)
He joined Bayern from Roma soon after the 1999 final, and two years later he came on as a substitute in the 2001 final. He was also a World Cup winner in 1994.

14 CARSTEN LAKIES (FORWARD)
Lethal in front of goal for Bayern’s second string following his 1996 switch from SV Darmstadt 98, Lakies didn’t get much time to make an impression for the first team, so he could be more determined than anyone to put on a good show today.

19 CARSTEN JANCKER (FORWARD)
A giant, imposing target man who could have changed the course of history with a bit more luck in front of goal during the 1999 final. He did make up for it by lifting the cup two years later, coming on as substitute in the final against Valencia.
