Christian Mayrleb (born 8 June 1972 in Wels) is an Austrian footballer who currently plays for Austrian team FC Pasching.

Club career[edit]

Born in Upper Austria, Mayrleb started his professional career at Second Division side Stahl Linz and SV Ried before joining First level outfit Admira/Wacker at the start of the 1994/1995 season. He then played for FC Tirol Innsbruck where he was snapped up by English Premier League club Sheffield Wednesday, only to return to Austria after half a season on the subs' bench. He moved to Vienna giants Austria Vienna for a prolific 4 years before moving on to play for SV Pasching, Red Bull Salzburg and ending up in Linz again with LASK Linz.

In November 2006 Mayrleb failed a drug test but was cleared by a League disciplinary panel because no evidence was found he was taking performance-enhancing drugs.[1]

International career[edit]

He made his debut for Austria in an August 1998 friendly match against France and came on as a substitute in his first six matches for the national team. He scored his first goal two months after his debut game. He earned 29 caps, scoring 6 goals. His last international was a September 2005 World Cup qualification match against Azerbaijan.
