Carsten Ramelow, Bernd Schneider and Oliver Neuville lost three finals in 2002:
- DFB Pokal (2-4 to Schalke 04, with Leverkusen)
- Champions League (1-2 to Real Madrid, with Leverkusen)
- FIFA World Cup (0-2 to Brazil with Germany)
They even ended up on the 2nd place of the Bundesliga with Leverkusen in that year, but since the league doesn't have playoffs they didn't lose a final there.
Did anyone ever beat this unfortunate streak by losing more than 3 finals within one season?
