Mönchengladbach mourn passing of club legend

Borussia Monchengladbach

VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach Vice-President Rainer Bonhof says the club are saddened by the passing of former forward Henning Jensen, who died on Monday after a short illness. 

The Denmark international, who won four titles with the club in the 1970s, scored 55 goals in 156 appearances during his time at Die Fohlen from 1972 until 1976. The silverware he helped the side collect included two Bundesliga crowns, one DFB-Pokal Cup as well as the UEFA Cup in 1974/75. 

Bonhof told the club's official website, "We are deeply saddened by the death of Henning Jensen, who has left a deep mark on both sports and as a person. We will always remember him as a member of the Borussia family." 

His form for the outfit from the Lower Rhine saw him win a move to Real Madrid where he spent three seasons and scored 16 times in 81 matches. 

After spells at Ajax Amsterdam and Aarhus Gymnastikforening in Holland, he retired in 1984 at Nørresundby BK. Jensen was 68 at the time of his death.
