Time for a new chapter

Time for a new chapter

After nearly two decades and more than 500 games in various competitions in professional football, the time has come for me to open a new chapter in my life. Today marks the end of my professional football career, which has given me so many wonderful experiences and...

New campaign, lingering challenges

New campaign, lingering challenges

Almost a quarter of the 2019/2020 season is already in the books. Unfortunately, it seems as if we’ve carried many of last year’s problems into the new championship. After nine games, we currently rank in 16th place with a record of two wins, three draws and four...


AS Monaco (07-01-2017)

I join AS Monaco, a heavy weight in Ligue 1 and a regular in UEFA CL competition. The move marks the beginning of a new chapter in my career.

VfL Wolfsburg (01-01-2008 – 06-30-2017)

The longest, most successful stint of my career. In nearly ten years as a „wolve“, we won a German Championship, the German Cup and also left our mark in UEFA CL play.

Clube Desportivo Nacional (30-06-2005 – 12-31-2007)

Time to gain experience as a starter in Madeira. It turned out be the perfect place; in two-plus seasons, I played in over 70 games.

VfB Stuttgart (07-01-2002 – 06-30-2005)

My first gig abroad. The years as a back-up for the VfB were particularly valuable and enlightening.

Grasshopper Club Zürich (07-01-1999 – 06-30-2002)

GC. Record Swiss title holder and also the club that allowed me to get my feet wet in professional football.

FC Baden (07-01-1997 – 06-30-1999)

It featured none of the characteristics of a deadline day deal, but I did change clubs for the first time at age 13 and took my talents to FC Baden.

FC Spreitenbach (01-01-1993 – 06-30-1997)

Here’s where it all began as a 10-year old striker. However, I soon discovered my preference for denying goals as opposed to scoring them.

Swiss National Team (2006 – 2014)

For eight years, I am the last line of defense for the Swiss „Nati“ before retiring from the team following the 2014 World Cup. Highlights include EURO 2008, the World Cup 2010 and the London Olympics in 2012.
