Christopher Buchtmann (born 25 April 1992) is a German footballer who plays as a left winger for FC St. Pauli in the 2. Bundesliga.[1][2]

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Buchtmann started his career at Hannover 96 before joining Borussia Dortmund when he was thirteen. He moved to England joining Liverpool youth academy.[3] In February 2010, he left Liverpool for a reported transfer fee of £100,000 to join Fulham, where he was in the development squad after signing an 18-month contract.[4]

However after three months at the club, Buchtmann left Fulham to return to Germany and sign with 1. FC Köln.[5] After two years of playing for the reserves, he made his debut for the relegated club, coming on as a substitute for Sławomir Peszko in the 68th minute as Köln lost 4–1 against Freiburg. He added another appearance in the last game of the season, in a 4–1 defeat to Bayern Munich.

In July, after a training camp in preparation of the 2012–13 season, Buchtmann was one of five players demoted to the reserve squad by coach Holger Stanislawski.[6]

FC St. Pauli[edit]

In late August, Buchtmann left Köln to join FC St. Pauli after his contract with Köln was terminated.[7] In January 2013, he signed a new contract with the club until 2015.[8]

The 2013–14 season was a breakthrough for him, as he established himself in the first team. In late January, he signed a new contract with the club, which would keep him until 2016.[9]

In March 2016, Buchtmann agreed to a contract extension until 2019.[10]

International career[edit]

Buchtmann represents the German national team, playing under 15, under 16, under 17, under 18, under 19 and under 20.[11] Buchtmann was captain for the national team in the squad that lead Germany winning the UEFA European Under-17 Championship. As a result of his performance, Buchtmann was named by the UEFA as one of the most promising stars in the future.[12]
