Ramazan Özcan (born 28 June 1984 in Hohenems) is an Austrian footballer of Turkish descent[1] who plays as a goalkeeper for Besiktas J.K. on loan from Hoffenheim. [2]





Özcan started his professional career with Austria Lustenau in 2003 and moved to Red Bull Salzburg in the summer of 2006. He spent one season and a half with Salzburg as the club's third-choice goalkeeper and only made two Bundesliga appearances in the final stages of the 2006-07 season.

He moved to German 2nd Bundesliga side 1899 Hoffenheim in the winter break of the 2007–08 season on an initial six-month loan and played all seventeen league games in the second half of the season as the club secured promotion to the 1st Bundesliga. In these seventeen games, he only conceded thirteen goals. He was signed by the club on a three-year contract upon the end of the season, but on 30 December 2009 he left Germany to sign on loan for Besiktas J.K.[3].


Following Helge Payer's withdrawal due to illness, Özcan was named to Austria's 23-man squad for the UEFA Euro 2008 finals,[4] but did not play any matches during the tournament. He made his international debut in a friendly match against Italy on 20 August 2008, replacing Alex Manninger at half-time. The match ended in a 2-2 draw.
