Julian Weigl (born 8 September 1995) is a German professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Borussia Dortmund and the German national team.[1]

Club career[edit]

1860 Munich[edit]

Weigl is a youth export from 1860 Munich. He made his 2. Bundesliga debut at 14 February 2014 against Ingolstadt. He replaced Yannick Stark after 66 minutes in a 2-0 away defeat.[2] He managed to play 14 league games in his first season with TSV's first team. In the first match of the 2014–15 season against Kaiserslautern Weigl, being only 18 years old, was named captain. He is therefore the youngest captain in the history of 1860 Munich.[3] After the second match of the season Weigl was fined and suspended to the second squad along with his teammates Vitus Eicher, Daniel Adlung and Yannick Stark. The four players had been out drinking late at night and were overheard talking negatively about the club.[4][5] Weigl was relieved of the captaincy and succeeded by Christopher Schindler.[6]

Borussia Dortmund[edit]

After the 2014–15 season Weigl transferred to Borussia Dortmund, where he signed a contract until 2019.[7] Julian Weigl made his official Dortmund debut on Saturday 15 August 2015 in a 4-0 home victory against Borussia Mönchengladbach. He made his Europa League debut a month after, when he came on in the 60th minute as a substitute against FC Krasnodar. Weigl's remarkable play earned him a starting place in Dortmund and helped them finish 2nd in the Bundesliga and also played regularly as Dortmund went deep into the Europa league, before being knocked out by Liverpool. He scored his first goal for Dortmund which was also his first professional goal against Sporting Lisbon in the UEFA Champions League, scoring the winner from outside the box in the 2–1 win. Weigl signed a new contract with Borussia on 21 December, keeping him at the club until 2021.[8]

International career[edit]

Weigl started to represent Germany at youth levels during the qualification for the 2014 European Under-19 Championship, which was eventually won by Germany.[9] Since August 2014 he is part of the U-20 squad.[10] On 13 October 2014 Weigl scored his first international goal in a 1-1 tie against the Netherlands U20.[11] Weigl made his debut for the German U-21 team on September 3, 2015, in a friendly match against Denmark.[12] Rewarded for a fine debut Bundesliga with a place in Germany’s provisional squad for Euro 2016, Weigl became a full international when he came off the bench against Slovakia. The game ended in a disappointing 3-1 defeat, but two days later, Weigl received confirmation that he had made the final cut for the Euros, although Weigl didn't play any games.
