Martin Kobylański (born 8 March 1994) is a German-born Polish professional footballer who plays as a striker for Union Berlin.[1]

Early years[edit]

He was born in Berlin as the son of former Polish international Andrzej Kobylański. At the time of his birth, his father was playing for 2. Bundesliga side Tennis Borussia Berlin. The majority of his youth however, he spent in nearby Cottbus where his father also had a three-year spell with local FC Energie.

Career[edit]

Professional debut in Cottbus[edit]

At the age of only 17, he made his 2. Bundesliga debut on 6 November 2011 as a 15th minute substitute for Dimitar Rangelov in a 2–0 home loss to SC Paderborn.[2] At that time several Bundesliga clubs, even including Bayern Munich, showed interest in his services.[3]

Werder Bremen[edit]

Kobylański signed for Werder Bremen II in summer 2012, and was regular for the team throughout the following 2012–13 season. He made his debut for the first team in a friendly versus FC St. Pauli on 5 September 2013 and even scored Werder's only goal in a shock 4–1 defeat. He had his debut in the Bundesliga for Werder Bremen on 21 September 2013 in a game against Hamburger SV in which he started.[4]

Union Berlin (loan)[edit]

In August 2014, Kobylanski moved to his native city and signed for Union Berlin on a one-year loan. Werder Bremen also granted Union a purchase clause.[5]
