Andreas Wolf (Russian: Андрей Андреевич Вольф; born 12 June 1982 in Leninabad, Soviet Union) is a German former footballer who last played as a defender for AS Monaco.[1] He had previously played at 1. FC Nürnberg since 2002 and was the team captain before leaving in the summer of 2011.

Career[edit]

After moving to Germany with his parents in 1990 he started playing football for several teams in the Ansbach area before joining Nürnberg in 1997. There he played for several junior teams, before breaking into first team football in 2002 when he debuted in the Bundesliga against Hertha BSC. Before the team's relegation in 2003 Wolf played in 18 games for the "Club". He became a regular during Nürnberg's successful promotion campaign in the 2003–04 season, playing in 31 of 34 games.

He could not reprise his role as first-team regular during the following two seasons, when he was plagued by injuries. With the start of the 2006–07 season, however, Wolf was back in the starting line-up alongside fellow centre-back Gláuber. After nine seasons for "the club", Wolf left Nürnberg after there was offer from the club.[2]

In July 2011, he moved to Werder Bremen on a two-year contract.[3] Wolf made 15 appearances and announced his desire to leave the club because of his injury concerns and personal reasons as the main factor.[4]

Monaco[edit]

In January 2012, Wolf signed a two-year contract (with an option of extending for a further year) with AS Monaco in the French Ligue 2 for an undisclosed fee. After making two appearances for the club in the first half of the 2011–12 season, it was announced that Wolf was appointed as a new captain of Monaco, under the new manager Claudio Ranieri.[5] Despite being appointed captain, Wolf's first team playing time soon became limited due to new signings as well as his own injuries. Following their promotion to Ligue 1, Wolf said he was treated as "poor man" at the club.[6]

After two years at Monaco, Wolf was released by the club.[7] After leaving Monaco, Wolf retired from professional football and wants to take up coaching [8]
