Notes - Ultra rare player shirt believed to have been worn by Heinrich in the Serie A match against Udinese played at Stadio Artemio Franchi on 4th October 1998. An even game on matchday 4 saw chances at both ends as both sides searched for a winner. The match went right down to the wire but it was La Viola who took all 3 points courtesy of a last minute strike from Edmundo. Heinrich played the full 90 minutes, this was the German's first season in Florence after transferring from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 1998. He made 42 appearances in all competitions and scored 3 goals to help the side to an impressive 3rd place finish in Serie A. The former Freiburg man spent one further season in Italy before returning to Dortmund in 2000. He continued to be a valued member of the German national side during this period and he earned 37 caps for Die Mannschaft between 1995-2002.
