Luc Holtz (born 14 June 1969, in Ettelbruck) is a former Luxembourgish football player. He was the manager of the Luxembourg national under-21 football team.[1] He is currently the manager of the Luxembourg national football team, succeeding Guy Hellers.[2]

Club career[edit]

A central midfield playmaker, Holtz started his career at Red Boys Differdange before joining Avenir Beggen for the 1992/1993 season. With Avenir Beggen he immediately won two successive league and cup doubles and he himself claimed the 1993 Luxembourgian Footballer of the Year award.

In 1999, he left them to become player/manager at Etzella Ettelbruck. With Etzella, he immediately won promotion to the Luxembourg National Division in his first season in charge. Also, he brought them their first major silverware by winning the cup in 2001. After relegation in 2002, they got promoted again at the first attempt. In 2003 and 2004 they lost two successive cup finals.

Holtz retired as a player at the end of the 2007/2008 season.

International career[edit]

Holtz made his debut for Luxembourg in an October 1991 friendly match against Portugal, which surprisingly ended in a 1–1 draw. He went on to earn 55 caps, scoring one goal.[3] He played in 15 FIFA World Cup qualification matches.[4]

He played his final international game in October 2002, a 0–7 demolition by Romania.
