Jan Schlaudraff (born 18 July 1983) is a German footballer who plays for Hannover 96 as a striker.

Club career[edit]

Born in Waldbröl, Schlaudraff started playing professionally for Borussia Mönchengladbach, mainly as a midfielder. During two and a half seasons he managed only ten first division appearances, the first being on 19 February 2003, as he played one minute in a 2–0 home win over VfL Wolfsburg.

Schlaudraff transferred to Alemannia Aachen in January 2005, eventually reconverting into a striker and being named team captain. In 2005–06's second level, he netted 11 goals to help the side return to the first division after a four-decade hiatus.

Although Schlaudraff performed well in the following campaign, Alemannia dropped a level after just one season, but he caught the eye of league powerhouse Bayern Munich, for a transfer fee of 1.2 million. Competition for him was fierce, with established internationals Miroslav Klose, Luca Toni and Lukas Podolski ahead in the pecking order. Coach Ottmar Hitzfeld chose to use Schlaudraff as a substitute in a few matches, and in most cases as an attacking midfielder.

Schlaudraff's season was a disappointment individually: although Bayern clinched the title, he only managed eight appearances, netting ten goals, but in friendly matches (notably seven against SV Darmstadt 98 in a 5–11 win, and a hat-trick in Bayern's end-of-season Asian tour, against the Indonesian national team (5–1, with youngsters Toni Kroos and Breno also netting).[2] After scoring another two goals against Indian side Mohun Bagan in a 3–0 victory,[3] Schlaudraff's pre-season tally boasted 15 goals in just five games.

In July 2008, he moved to Hannover 96.[4] There he was used exclusively as striker, and scored his first two goals on 14 September 2008, against former team Borussia Mönchengladbach, in a 5–1 home success.

On 18 August 2011, Schlaudraff scored both Hannover goals in their 2–1 victory over Sevilla FC in the Europa League. Hannover went on to win the game 3–2 on aggregate, qualifying for the 2011–12 UEFA Europa League group stage

International career[edit]

Courtesy of his Alemannia performances, Schlaudraff made his debut for Germany when he was called up for two games in October 2006: a friendly against Georgia and a Euro 2008 qualifier against Slovakia.[5]
