Mimoun Azaouagh (born 17 November 1982 in Benisidel, Nador Province, Morocco) is a Moroccan-born German footballer, who plays for 1. FC Kaiserslautern.[1][2]

Career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Azaough started his career with the junior teams of FSV Frankfurt and Eintracht Frankfurt. In 1999 he moved to FSV Mainz. In the season 2000–01 he played his first matches for the second team of FSV Mainz in the Oberliga. Azaough was transferred from the amateur team to the professional team in September 2002, and from this time was given a regular position in the team. When he helped them to promote into the Bundesliga in the season 2003–04, he had played 48 games and scored four goals in the Second Bundesliga.

First Bundesliga season[edit]

Azaough missed the first three matches of FSV Mainz in the Bundesliga due to an illness. But already in his second match at the highest German level he scored a goal. During a game with VfL Wolfsburg on 30 October 2004 his playing career was curtailed severely by a clash with another player. Later this season he was recompensed financially for this injury.

At the end of the calendar year 2004, however, he moved to FC Schalke 04. It wasn't a very harmonious transfer: in the beginning FC Schalke 04 even refused to pay the transfer fee. It took months till the clubs found an agreement.

FC Schalke 04[edit]

It took months of rehabilitation till Azaough could play again. On 14 January 2005, he made his debut for FC Schalke 04 in a friendly against SC Paderborn. On 4 March 2005, he played his first Bundesliga match for 'S04' against Hannover 96. Azaough scored his first goal in the UEFA Cup match against US Palermo on 16 March 2006.

FSV Mainz 05[edit]

In the season 2006–07 he played on a loan for FSV Mainz again. But he returned in the next season to FC Schalke 04.

VfL Bochum[edit]

Since he did not play very often he was loaned to VfL Bochum for the rest of the season. After the 2007–08 season, Azaouagh was transferred to Bochum. His contract ran until 30 June 2012.
