Ralf Fährmann (born 27 September 1988) is a German professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Schalke 04 in the Bundesliga.

Professional career[edit]

Ralf Fährmann playing for Schalke 04

Fährmann made his professional debut for Schalke on 13 September 2008 in 3–3 draw away to Borussia Dortmund.[1] On 16 September 2008 he played his first international match against APOEL F.C. in a UEFA Cup tie.

At the end of the 2008–09 season, he left FC Schalke 04 and moved to Eintracht Frankfurt on free transfer and signed a contract until 30 June 2012.[2]

He returned to Schalke in 2011 after the team sold Manuel Neuer to FC Bayern Munich for a fee of 22 million euros. In the 2011 DFL- Supercup, Fährmann was the Man of the Match. After 90 minutes, the game finished 0–0 and it went on directly to a penalty shootout. Fährmann held two penalty kicks; one from Kevin Großkreutz and one from Ivan Perisic, thus allowing Schalke 04 to raise the Supercup trophy for the first time in the club's history. In the start of 2013–14 season, he was the second choice keeper behind Timo Hildebrand. While Hildebrand was injured, he became the first choice goalkeeper and his impressive performances saw him keep the number one spot for the remainder of the season.

On 4 May 2014, Schalke announced that Fährmann extended his contract with Schalke until 30 June 2019.[3]

International career[edit]

He is a former member of several Germany national youth football teams.[4]

Personal life[edit]

Ralf Fährmann's brother Falk Fährmann is also a professional footballer, who has recently played for FSV Zwickau.[5]
