Eugen Polanski (born as Ryszard PolaŇĄski[1] 17 March 1986 in Sosnowiec) is a German footballer currently playing with 1. FSV Mainz 05, mainly as a defensive midfielder. He was born in Sosnowiec (Silesian Voivodeship), Poland, a member of the German minority in Silesia.


Club career

Polanski made his professional debuts with Borussia M√∂nchengladbach in 2004‚Äď05, having joined the club's youth ranks ten years earlier. His first league appearance came on February 12, 2005, in a 0-2 loss at SV Werder Bremen (his sole game of the season).

Against Bayer 04 Leverkusen, on November 19, Polanski scored in a 1-1 home draw, and would go on to manage two seasons with relative playing time. However, the following season, which ended in promotion, only brought nine second division appearances individually.

After his contract at Borussia expired at the end of the season, Polanski agreed a move to La Liga club Getafe CF. During his first season, he was first-choice, often partnering Javier Casquero in central midfield.

On 12 June 2009, Polanski was loaned out to 1. FSV Mainz 05, on a season-long spell[2] and was sold on 17 September 2009 who signed an two years contract[3].

International career

Polanski opted to represent Germany internationally, and appeared for the nation in various youth levels, often as captain.

Vigorously turning down a hasty effort of Poland's then manager Pawel Janas to switch back nationalities in time to represent the country of his birth at the 2006 World Cup, Polanski was a key member of Germany under-21s at the 2006 European Championship, scoring a magnificent long-range goal in the fixture against Serbia and Montenegro.[4]His form during the tournament made former Champions League finalist AS Monaco FC enquire about his services, but Mönchengladbach promptly rejected the offer.
