Dariusz Wosz (born 8 June 1969 in Piekary Śląskie, Silesia, Poland) is a German former footballer who played mostly as a playmaker. He is coach of the VfL Bochum II team

Early life[edit]

Wosz's family migrated to Halle from Polish part of Silesia.

Club career[edit]

He started to play football at BSG Motor Halle in 1980. After a year there he moved to BSG Empor Halle before joining Chemie Halle in 1984.

Two years after joining the club he made it into the first team, who earned promotion from the second division to the DDR-Oberliga, although Wosz would only play once, in 1986–87. During the following four seasons he would amass 93 games (15 goals) until the Oberliga merged with the Bundesliga due to the German reunification.[1]

Wosz stayed at Halle for the 1991–92 2nd Bundesliga season, lining up in 22 games (5 goals). Because the club finished fourth in the final East German football season, he was able to play twice in the 1991–92 UEFA Cup.

Wosz was transferred to VfL Bochum in toward the end of the 1991–92 season. As captain, he led Bochum to its biggest success yet: the third round of the 1997–98 UEFA Cup which was lost 4–6 on aggregate to Ajax Amsterdam.

In the summer of 1998, Wosz was transferred to Hertha BSC. After three successful years, including participation in the UEFA Champions League, he requested to be transferred back to Bochum, where he helped the side qualify for the 2004–05 UEFA Cup. During his final season, 2006–07, Wosz only played one match, being substituted on for Zvjezdan Misimović in the 70th minute against Borussia Mönchengladbach. Twelve minutes later he scored his final Bundesliga goal. In summer 2007, he played besides his coaching job with Bochum based football club SC Union Bergen and retired in summer 2009.[2]
