Sebastian Alexander Jung (born 22 June 1990) is a German footballer who plays as a right back for VfL Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga.

Club career[edit]

Jung played his first Bundesliga match for Eintracht Frankfurt, and first fully professional game, on 8 March 2009 in a 0–0 draw against Arminia Bielefeld, as a substitute for Patrick Ochs.[2] On 7 February 2010, he scored his first Bundasliga goal at Signal Iduna Park against Borussia Dortmund. He became a regular in the Frankfurt first team during the 2010–11 season, during which they were surprisingly relegated from the Bundesliga, but was almost ever-present the following season as they bounced back at the first attempt. He extended his contract on 4 April 2013 until 30 June 2015.

He joined VfL Wolfsburg on 22 May 2014 and signed a contract until 30 June 2018.[3]

International career[edit]

On 11 November 2012, Jung was first called up to the German senior squad, following injury related withdrawals by several players, including Holger Badstuber and Jérôme Boateng, before a friendly against Netherlands on 14 November 2012. He is the first Eintracht Frankfurt player to be called up to the national team since Horst Heldt in 1999.
