Serdar Tasci (Turkish: Taşçı, [ˈtaʃtʃɯ], German: [taskiː]) (born 24 April 1987) is a German footballer who plays as a centre back for Spartak Moscow.

Club career[edit]

VfB Stuttgart[edit]

Tasci was born in Esslingen, Baden-Württemberg to Turkish parents. He played for the youth teams of SC Altbach, of Stuttgarter Kickers and, from July 1999 onwards, of Stuttgart. Before the 2005–06 season, he joined Stuttgart's second team, playing in the Regionalliga (third division). Prior to 2006–07, he was promoted to the club's Bundesliga side.

Tasci in 2010

He had his professional debut on 20 August 2006 against Arminia Bielefeld, 3–2 win, in the second game of the season, being brought on for injured Danish striker Jon Dahl Tomasson in the 68th minute. His first goal followed only a week later, in the next game against Borussia Dortmund in a 1–3 defeat.

On 29 August 2009, he extended his contract at Stuttgart until the summer of 2014.[2] On 12 January 2012, Tasci was appointed the new captain of VfB Stuttgart by Bruno Labbadia.[3]

Spartak Moscow[edit]

On 30 August 2013, Tasci moved to FC Spartak Moscow.[4][5]

International career[edit]

Because of his Turkish descent and German birthright, he was eligible to play for either Germany or Turkey, but in October 2006 he decided to pursue a career for Germany. He had his debut for the Germany national under-21 football team on 6 February 2007 in a 2–0 win against Scotland and went on to make his senior international debut for Germany on 20 August 2008 in a friendly match against Belgium in Nuremberg, which they won 2–0. He made his World Cup debut as a substitute in Germany's match against Uruguay, coming on in the 91st minute for Mesut Özil.
