Frank Fahrenhorst (born 24 September 1977 in Kamen, North Rhine-Westphalia) is a retired German footballer, currently employed as assistant manager to Bernhard Trares at FC Schalke 04 II.

Career[edit]

The defender turned professional with VfL Bochum in 1996 and remained with them for eight seasons as they yo-yo'ed between the top two divisions.

In summer 2004, he switched to then-champions Werder Bremen, where he immediately won the DFB-Ligapokal against Bayern Munich. The club never managed any further honours during his two seasons there but he did achieve eight appearances in the UEFA Champions League.

On 9 August 2006, he transferred to Hannover 96, as part of the deal which saw Per Mertesacker move in the opposite direction.

On 27 September 2008, Hannover 96 were scheduled to play Bayern Munich at the AWD-Arena. Fahrenhorst was allowed exclusion from the team as his wife was close to giving birth. However, shortly before the match began, Jiří Štajner accidentally injured Mario Eggimann's eye in training. Due to Eggiman's injury, Fahrenhorst was hastily recalled into the starting line-up against the defending champions. He gave an eye-catching, determined performance as Hannover 96 ran out 1–0 winners.[1] On 22 April 2009, Hannover 96 announced that they would not renew his contract. Fahrenhorst left the club on 30 June 2009 at the end of his contract and joined MSV Duisburg until 30 June 2011, but on 17 August 2010 he signed a two-year contract with FC Schalke 04 II.[2]
