Notes - Very rare player shirt believed to have been worn by Andersen in a Bundesliga match against Bayer Leverkusen during the 1998-99 season. Ahead of the regular League fixtures between the two sides Leverkusen had already triumphed over Duisburg in the DFL-Ligapokal thrashing Friedhelm Funkel's side 3-0. In the first League meeting it was again Leverkusen who ran out winners courtesy of a Paulo Rink goal in the opening minute whichwas followed up by an Emerson strike midway through the second half. The reverse fixture at the Wedaustadion in May was a bad tempered affair. Referee Hermann Albrecht dished out 9 bookings as the sides played out a 0-0 draw. Anderson started and played the full 90 minutes of both matches against Die Werkself this season which was his first in North Rhine-Westphalia after transferring from Odense in the summer 1998. The Dane made 28 appearances for Die Zebras this season scoring twice in wins over Bochum and Kaiserslautern. The former Rangers and Aalborg man was loaned out in his second season with the club before transferring to Norwegian side Odd Grenland in 2000.
