Johannes Hopf, born 16 June 1987, is a Swedish professional football player. He currently plays as a goalkeeper for Turkish side Gençlerbirliği S.K..



Hopf joined Hammarby in the summer of 2008 after impressing on a trial with the club. He signed a 3 12-year contract with the Stockholm-based club.[1] During the 2009 season, he was on loan to the affiliated team Hammarby TFF where he was appointed best goalkeeper in the league system.[2]

He made his first game for Hammarby in the final game of Allsvenskan 2009, against BK Häcken, with the club already set for relegation. Hammarby were defeated, 0–1.[3]

In 2010, he started on the bench, being second choice behind former Swedish nationalteam goalkeeper, Rami Shaaban. But after weak appearances by the latter, he soon established himself as first choice.

Hopf was voted Player of the Year in Hammarby IF 2010 in competition with the Genoa player Linus Hallenius. He was again voted Player of the year in 2012 after an impressing season.[4]

Among other great achievements he won two penalty shootouts for his team to secure Hammarby IF a place in the 2010 Swedish Cup Final. He was appointed Man of the match when his side lost 0–1 to Helsingborg. [1]


On 27 May 2015, Hopf signed a three-year deal with the Turkish club Gençlerbirliği S.K..[5][6][7] He made his debut on 29 August 2015 in a 1-0 win against Kasımpaşa.[8]

International career[edit]

Hopf received his first call up to the senior Sweden squad in March 2016 for friendlies against Turkey and Czech Republic.[9]
