Sven Scheuer (born 19 January 1971 in Böblingen) is a retired German professional footballer who played as a goalkeeper.

Club career[edit]

Scheuer joined Bayern Munich in 1988, and spent 11 years with the club,[1] serving as backup goalkeeper to Raimond Aumann until 1994 and later Oliver Kahn. He usually shared this role with another 'keeper, including Uwe Gospodarek (1991–1994), Michael Probst (1994–1996) and Bernd Dreher (1996–1999). He made 20 appearances in the Bundesliga, half of which came in the 1994–95 season, and won five league titles, plus the UEFA Cup in 1996 and the German Cup in 1998. He also played regularly for Bayern's reserve team, in the Oberliga Bayern and Regionalliga Süd.

After leaving Bayern, Scheuer embarked on a fairly nomadic career, playing for Adanaspor in Turkey,[2] Grazer AK in Austria, and 1. FC Saarbrücken and VfL Osnabrück back home. He also had an unsuccessful trial with Crystal Palace in 2002.[3]

International career[edit]

Scheuer played one match for the Germany under-21 team, a 3–0 win over Luxembourg in October 1990.
