Christian Backs (born 26 August 1962) is a German former footballer.


Backs played for BFC Dynamo (later named FC Berlin) for 12 seasons,[1] winning eight East German titles and two cups in the 1980s.

International career[edit]

During this time he won nine caps for East Germany, scoring once.[2] He was also involved in the East German Olympic team who qualified for the 1984 Olympics, but was forced to stay at home, because of the East Germans' boycott of the tournament.

Coaching career[edit]

After reunification, Backs wound down his career with Reinickendorfer Füchse, where he played from 1992 to 1997. He took over as manager of the 'Foxes' in 2000, where he remained until 2004 when he took the reins at his old club Dynamo. He only lasted a year, however, and after a brief spell at Berliner AK, returned to Reinickendorf, where he remained until 2009. In summer 2009 returning to BFC Dynamo for a second spell as manager and was in March 2010 fired.
