Biography


Jochen began his career with hometown club Erbach before moving to SV Waldhof Mannheim in 1986. He spent five seasons there making over 120 appearances before signing for United in July 1991 for £75,000. The 28-year-old defender made his first appearance during United's tour of Holland against FC Volendam, and his competitive debut eight days later in the enthralling 4-3 defeat to Celtic in the opening League match of the season at Tannadice.

The German missed only one of the next six games, but by the start of September found himself demoted to the second eleven. During a reserve match in November 1991 Jochen was injured and returned to Germany for treatment, but two months later he had to retire from the game due to this back injury. He later returned to Mannheim as a youth coach.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Jochen began his career with hometown club Erbach before moving to SV Waldhof Mannheim in 1986. He spent five seasons there making over 120 appearances before signing for United in July 1991 for £75,000. The 28-year-old defender made his first appearance during United's tour of Holland against FC Volendam, and his competitive debut eight days later in the enthralling 4-3 defeat to Celtic in the opening League match of the season at Tannadice.

  • The opening match of the season produced an explosive start with new signing Jochem Muller making his debut. There was almost a sensational start for the German newcomer when Bonner managed to pluck his header out from under the bar. However, it was Celtic who drew first blood in what was to develop into a quite fascinating contest. Charlie Nicholas headed Celtic ahead from close in after only nine minutes. There was a further set-back for us when Tommy Coyne took a return pass from Charlie Nicholas and blasted home a second from just inside the box after 17 minutes. However, a controversial penalty award ten minutes later brought us back into contention. Referee Brian McGinlay spotted Duncan Ferguson being held and after Bonner had been booked Michael O'Neillstepped up to hammer the spot-kick high into the net. Thereafter we enjoyed our best spell of the game to date only for Celtic to grab an unexpected third when John Collins lofted drive from 25 yards went in via the underside of the bar.

  • Last Appearance - Dundee United 0 - 0 Aberdeen

    This was supposedly a summer's day, but the haar which enshrouded Tannadice made it more like November and the Tannadice floodlights were on from the start. Injuries once more upset team selection. Dave Narey and new signing Walter Rojas, both failed fitness tests on the morning of the match, so we made only one change to the starting eleven which defeated Falkirk in midweek — Alex Cleland coming in for Dave Narey.
