Michael Fuß (born 21 May 1977 in Berlin[1]) is a German footballer.

Club career[edit]

Fuß started his career at Blau-Weiß 90 Berlin[2] and later joined the youth squad of Türkiyemspor Berlin.[3]

After coming through the ranks of Hertha BSC, he switched to city rivals Hertha Zehlendorf before moving to Türkiyemspor Berlin where he scored a Verbandsliga record[4] 66 goals in 34 league games,[2] helping the club to become Berlin-Liga champions of the 1999–2000 season.[1] Fuß left Türkiyemspor for Tennis Borussia Berlin in the then third-tier Regionalliga Nord, scoring only twice in 21 games. After spells at 1. SC Göttingen 05 and 1. SC Feucht, Fuß returned to Türkiyemspor and then spent five years at Tennis Borussia and had a trial at FC Energie Cottbus[2][5] before signing for Berliner AK 07, scoring 16 goals from 22 appearances. From 2010 until 2012, he played for BFC Viktoria 1889, before joining SV Blau Weiss Berlin,[2] becoming the tier-8-Bezirksliga Berlin's top goalscorer with 45 goals.[6] In 2013, aged 36, Fuß returned to Tennis Borussia Berlin,[6][7] and was the 2013–14 Berlin-Liga season top-scorer with 24 goals in 26 games.

Personal life[edit]

During his time at Türkiyemspor Fuß converted to Islam and in the course of his circumcision took on the Turkish name "Mert".[2][3]
