Holger Badstuber ([ˈhɔlgɐ ˈbaːtˌʃtuːbɐ], born 13 March 1989 in Memmingen[2]) is a German footballer who plays as a defender or midfielder for Bayern Munich.



Badstuber is another product of the Bayern Munich youth academy and progressed through the youth setup and reserve team before signing professional terms in July 2009, along with team-mate Thomas Müller, having been an unused substitute in a number of first-team matches in the 2008–09 season. He made his debut in the first league game of the 2009–10 season, against Hoffenheim and has been a regular in defence. He scored his first senior goal, a powerful free kick, against Borussia Mönchengladbach on 4 December 2009. He and Bastian Schweinsteiger are the now the first choice penalty and corner takers. A centre back by training, he has been playing out of position at left back, a problematic position so that Philipp Lahm can cover at right back, another problematic position. The youngster has impressed so far and, along with Lahm and Schweinsteiger, are the few players to have started every league game since matchday 1.

On 4 February 2010 Bayern Munich announced that Badstuber had signed a new contract that would keep him at the club until 2014.[3][4]

International career

Shortly afterwards, he was called up to the Germany under-21 team for the first time, making his debut in a 3–1 defeat against Turkey.
