A right sided defender who started his career with TSV 1860 Dinkelsbühl. In 1982, he played for 1. FC Nürnberg, first in the 2. Bundesliga and, from 1985, in the Bundesliga. In exactly 100 games he scored ten goals. He was occasionally used as a right sided midfielder.

In 1988, he was transferred to Bayern Munich. He played 95 games in the Bundesliga and scored four goals for the Bavarians. He won the Bundesliga title with Bayern in 1988–89 and 1989–90.

A proposed move to Liverpool following West Germany's victorious World Cup campaign was turned down at the last minute with Reuter following many of his compatriots to Italy. From 1991 to 1992 he played for Juventus, but returned soon to Germany, joining Borussia Dortmund. With Borussia, Reuter won the Bundesliga in 1994–95, 1995–96 and 2001–02, and the UEFA Champions League in 1996–97. The team also reached the final of the UEFA Cup in both 1993 and 2002. Overall, he played 307 games for Dortmund and scored 11 goals in the Bundesliga before retiring in 2004.

He also played for the German national team. All in all it were 69 games (two goals) for Nürnberg (nine), Bayern Munich (18), Juventus (18) and Borussia Dortmund (33).[2]


In 1984, Reuter was part of the team that won the U-16 European Championship. He later won the 1990 World Cup, as well as the Euro 1996.

In 1992, Reuter became the first player in the European Championship history to be substituted as a substitute, when during the match between Germany and Scotland, he replaced Karl-Heinz Riedle but then only seven minutes later he had to leave the field due to an injury, and was replaced by Michael Schulz.[3]

He was known for his speed on the field (100 m in 11.2 s), a quality that resulted in his nickname "Turbo".[2]

Managing career

Reuter served as team manager for TSV 1860 München from January 2006 to 2 February 2009 when he was removed from the job.

On 27 February 2012, he was appointed as general manager of FC Augsburg.[4]
