Germany's veteran physiotherapist Adolf Katzenmeier died on Wednesday aged 81.

Katzenmeier worked for the German FA (DFB) for 45 years, 34 of them as the national team's physiotherapist.

He was called up to the DFB by Bundestrainer Sepp Herberger in 1963, and for 11 years worked for the youth teams as well as the Olympic Games squad.

Ahead of the 1974 World Cup in Germany, he was promoted to the national team where he was first occupied the role of massager and later became the chief of the physio-department.
