David Solga (born 16 October 1982 in Dortmund) is a German footballer who plays as a midfielder for Borussia Dortmund II.


Solga began his career in youth football in his hometown, playing for TuS Eving-Lindenhorst, before joining Brambauer SV. In 2002, he joined Lüner SV of the Oberliga (IV), before moving upwards to play for Borussia Dortmund's reserve team a year later. Four years later he moved on to Wacker Burghausen, who he helped qualify for the new 3. Liga, before moving on to Dynamo Dresden in 2009.

Drug test[edit]

In October 2008, Solga failed a drug test, testing positive for the stimulant methylpseudoephedrine. He was cleared, however, as this substance is commonly used as a decongestant, in cold remedies. The Wacker Burghausen doctor confirmed that he had prescribed the medicine for this purpose.[1]
