Biography

Günter Sawitzki (born 22 November 1932) is a former German football player.

Sawitzki's performances for underdog side SV Sodingen in the then best German division caught the attention of West German coach Sepp Herberger and made Sawitzki a proposed rival to Heinz Kwiatkowski and Fritz Herkenrath for the role as Toni Turek's successor in the West German goal. Before Sawitzki left tiny Sodingen, who had finished third in Germany in 1955, to join VfB Stuttgart in 1956, he had already played in two games for West Germany.

Sticking with (later) Bundesliga included VfB Stuttgart for the rest of his career, the goalkeeper was in the squads of West Germany at the 1958 FIFA World Cup and 1962 FIFA World Cup, although he remained reserve on both occasions.

Sawitzki's biggest success as a player was winning the West German Cup in 1958 with VfB Stuttgart.
