Andreas Ibertsberger (born 27 July 1982 in Salzburg) is an Austrian footballer who is currently playing for German club MSV Duisburg. He is also a member of the Austrian national team.

Ibertsberger is a younger brother of former national team player Robert Ibertsberger whose career was cut short by injury.

Club career[edit]

Ibertsberger played for SC Freiburg, for whom he signed from Austria Salzburg in January 2005.[1] In January 2008, he moved to 1899 Hoffenheim, with whom he originally signed a pre-contract agreement for the 2008–09 season.[2] With smalltown club Hoffenheim he won promotion to the German Bundesliga.

On 15 May 2012, Ibertsberger's contract with Hoffenheim expired, after missing the vast majority of the 2011–12 season with a chronic back problem.[3]

International career[edit]

He made his debut for Austria in an October 2004 World Cup qualification match against Northern Ireland. He earned 12 caps, scoring one goal.
