Daniel Schwaab (born 23 August 1988) is a German footballer who plays as a centre back for VfB Stuttgart in the Bundesliga.[1]

Club career[edit]


Schwaab began his career with SC Freiburg in the 2. Bundesliga. In his second season with the first team, he started in every single match that he played.[2] Overall, he scored six league goals for Freiburg despite being a defender.

Bayer Leverkusen[edit]

He was soon snapped up by top flight side Bayer Leverkusen and made his Bundesliga debut on 8 August 2009 against 1. FSV Mainz 05.

VfB Stuttgart[edit]

After the end of his contract with Leverkusen on 1 July 2013, Schwaab moved to VfB Stuttgart on a free transfer. On 8 May 2013, Daniel Schwaab signed a contract until June 2016 with VfB Stuttgart.[3] He made his debut with VfB Stuttgart on 17 August 2013, against his previous team Bayer Leverkusen, where he scored an own goal. The match ended 0-1, with Stuttgart losing the game.

International career[edit]

A youth international since the U18 level, Schwaab was called up to the U21 side for the 2009 European Championships and won the title. He made only one appearance, as a substitute during the final, at the tournament but soon became first choice for the new qualifying campaign.
