Harald Cerny (German pronunciation: [ˈhaʁald ˈtsɛʁniː];[1] born 13 September 1973) is a former Austrian football right midfielder.[2] He played mostly for TSV 1860 München.

After coming through the youth ranks at Admira Wacker, Cerny began his professional career at German giants FC Bayern Munich in 1992–93, making his top division debut on 27 October 1992, in a 1–1 draw at Eintracht Frankfurt.

Just after the start of the 1993–94 season (he appeared in three matches for the eventual champions), Cerny returned to Admira, where a good league season prompted a move to FC Tirol. During 1995–96, he returned to Munich, but with neighbours TSV 1860 München. In his eleven-year spell, Cerny appeared in 213 first division contests (a club record) scoring 15 goals, while helping it consolidate in the top flight and appear in the UEFA Cup.

He retired after 2006–07, having played with the Bavarians in the second division his final three campaigns.

International career[edit]

Cerny made his debut for Austria in a March 1993 friendly match against Greece. He earned 47 caps, scoring four goals.[3]

His last international was an April 2004 friendly match against Luxembourg. He also played two matches at the 1998 FIFA World Cup in France, adding nine World Cup qualifiers.[4]
