Josip Drmić (Croatian pronunciation: [jǒsip dř̩mitɕ];[2][3] born 8 August 1992) is a Swiss professional footballer who plays as a striker for Borussia Mönchengladbach and the Switzerland national team.

Drmić began his career with Zürich and moved to 1. FC Nürnberg in 2013. His 17 goals in his first Bundesliga season then earned him a transfer to Bayer Leverkusen, where he spent one campaign before being signed by Mönchengladbach.

A full international since 2012, Drmić has earned over 20 caps for Switzerland, representing them at the 2012 Olympics and the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Early life[edit]

Drmić was born to Croatian parents in Lachen in the canton of Schwyz, fleeing Croatian war of Independence.

Club career[edit]

Zürich[edit]

Drmić began his playing career at Zürich and rose through the youth ranks, soon playing regularly for Zürich's reserve team. He eventually made his league debut on 6 February 2010 against Neuchâtel Xamax, coming on as a substitute. He scored his first Swiss Super League goal in a 1–1 away draw against Luzern on 4 February 2012.[4]

During the 2012–13 season, Drmić scored 13 goals in 31 Super League matches and 19 goals from 39 matches in all competitions.[5]

1. FC Nürnberg[edit]

In July 2013, Drmić joined German Bundesliga club 1. FC Nürnberg on a four-year contract.[6] On 18 August, he scored his first Bundesliga goal in a 2–2 draw against Hertha BSC.[7] He finished his first season with 17 league goals, the third most by any player in the league,[8] although his team was relegated to the 2. Bundesliga.[9]

Bayer Leverkusen[edit]

On 12 May 2014, Drmić agreed to sign a five-year deal with Bayer Leverkusen, for an undisclosed fee.[10] He made his debut on 19 August as an 88th-minute substitute for Hakan Çalhanoğlu as the side won 3–2 away against Copenhagen in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League play-off.[11]

Drmić was an unused substitute as the club began its 2014–15 Bundesliga campaign on 23 August with a 2–0 win at Borussia Dortmund[12] and did not feature at all in Leverkusen's first two matches of the league season, making his debut on 12 September by replacing Stefan Kießling in added time of a 3–3 draw at home against Werder Bremen.[13] Nine days later, he scored his first goal for the team, starting and then equalising in the 29th minute of a 4–1 defeat at VfL Wolfsburg.[14] He added his first brace for the club on 29 November, as a half-time replacement for Stefan Kießling in a 5–1 win over 1. FC Köln.[15] On 13 March 2015, he added another brace for his fifth and sixth goals of the league season, in a 4–0 home win over VfB Stuttgart.[16] Drmić was the only Leverkusen player to miss in the penalty shootout against Bayern Munich on 8 April; his attempt was saved by Manuel Neuer, which eliminated the team from the quarter-finals of the DFB-Pokal.[17]

Borussia Mönchengladbach[edit]

On 17 June 2015, Drmić joined his third Bundesliga club, Borussia Mönchengladbach, on a four-year deal.[18] He made his debut on 10 August, starting in a 4–1 win at FC St. Pauli in the first round of the DFB-POkal. Five days later, he made his league bow in a 4–0 loss at Borussia Dortmund. Drmić totalled only one goal from 19 matches across all competitions before leaving on loan. His only goal came on 28 November, a header as Mönchengladbach came from behind to draw 3–3 at 1899 Hoffenheim.[19]

On 1 February 2016, Drmić joined fellow league team Hamburger SV on loan until the end of the season.[20] He debuted six days later, starting in a 1–1 draw with 1. FC Köln at the Volksparkstadion.[21] On 27 February, he scored the first goal of his loan, opening a home match of the same score against FC Ingolstadt.[22]

International career[edit]

Drmić is a Swiss international, having played at under-19, under-21 and senior level.[23] He was a member of Switzerland's squad at the 2012 Summer Olympics,[5] and came on as a substitute in the last two matches as the team were eliminated in last place in Group B.

On 11 September 2012, Drmić won his first cap for the Switzerland senior team in a 2–0 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying win over Albania.[24] He scored his first two international goals in a 2–2 draw with Croatia on 6 March 2014.[25]

On 13 May 2014, Drmić was named in Switzerland's squad for the 2014 World Cup.[26] He scored the only goal of the match in the 83rd minute from Blerim Džemaili's assist as Switzerland beat Jamaica in a warm-up match for the tournament on 30 May. In the first match of the tournament, a 2–1 win over Ecuador, he had a goal ruled out for offside and was substituted for Haris Seferović, who scored the winning goal.[27] Drmić was dropped for Seferović for the second match, a 5–2 defeat to France, but returned and set up two of Xherdan Shaqiri's three goals in the 3–0 win over Honduras in the last group match in Manaus, which saw Switzerland advance to the knockout stage as group runners-up.[28]

Drmić scored his first competitive goal for Switzerland on 14 June 2015, equalising in a 2–1 away victory over Lithuania in UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying.[29] On 5 September, he came on in the 64th minute for Blerim Džemaili, and scored twice as the Swiss came from 0–2 down to defeat Slovenia 3–2 in a qualifier in Basel.[30] After having knee surgery in March, he missed the final tournament.[31]
