100 matches in the DDR-Oberliga, 40 something in the Budesliga after what the Germans call "die Wende" and about twenty international matches. But Wieland Ziller was implicated in the Great German Match Fixing Scandal and that changes everything

Ante S.

November 26, 2004, match fixing evil mastermind Ante S. (Spina) passed 25.000 Euro in a napkin across a Dresden restaurant table to Wieland Ziller. The Croat asked Ziller to pass (most of) the money to referee Jansen who was supposed to manipulate the match Kaiserslautern - Freiburg.
Later Ziller stated he never talked to Jansen and pocketed the money. Wieland Ziller got a 5 month's ban (other sources say lifelong) from football. Ziller had been active as a referee supervisor in the Dresden area.

So nothing happened according to Wieland, and no news article tells you what happened to the money, did he get to keep it? did he find a horse's head in his bedroom? Still it is alleged that the Kaiserslautern match (3 -0) Ziller and Jansen were suppose to fix was indeed fixed. Jansen denied everything but many people who saw the match noticed how Carsten Jancker, the Kaiserslautern forward was allowed to score after he had fouled. Ziller and Jansen both were accused of betting on matches.

in 1989, World Cup u16
