Martin Hiden (born 11 March 1973 in Stainz) is a former Austrian football player, who is currently assistant coach at FC Pasching.

Club career[edit]

He played for clubs such as Sturm Graz, SV Salzburg (where he claimed his first league title),[1] Rapid Wien, Leeds United (England) and Austria Wien. Joining Leeds United in 1998, he was the first-ever Austrian outfield player (goalkeeper Alex Manninger joined Arsenal in 1997) to play in the Premier League. From 2003 he returned to Rapid Wien, winning the Austrian championship once more in 2005.

In 2006 he was announced as the new captain of Rapid (after a short period with goalkeeper Helge Payer as captain, who didn't feel comfortable in the role that was given to him after the departure of Steffen Hofmann), and in 2007, after the injuries of Andreas Ivanschitz and Martin Stranzl, he was also made captain of the national team for two matches.

International career[edit]

He made his debut for Austria in a March 1998 friendly match against Hungary and was a participant at the 1998 FIFA World Cup but did not play. He earned 50 caps, scoring one goal.[2] He also was part of the squad at Euro 2008.
