In European Cup competitions he made 40 appearances scoring nine goals.

He won 44 caps for the German national team and scored five goals. He was a member of the German squad in the World Cups of 1966 (but did not play), 1970 and 1974. He is known for his versatility; being able to play on either side of midfield.
