Markus Anfang (German pronunciation: [ˈmaɐ̯kʊs ˈʔanfaŋ];[1][2] born 12 June 1974) is a German retired footballer and current coach of 1. FC Köln.

Career[edit]

Playing career[edit]

Anfang's career began in the late 80s at the northern Cologne low tier (Kreisliga) club KSV Heimersdorf. His first steps in the professional football league were done in 1995 with Fortuna Düsseldorf. Anfang also played for Schalke 04 before he decided to move to Austria where he played for FC Tirol Innsbruck. He won the Austrian Bundesliga in three consecutive years between 2000 and 2002. In the 2002–03 season he moved to 1. FC Kaiserslautern.

Having received as many as eight offers for transferring after disagreements at Kaiserslautern, he moved to FC Energie Cottbus in 2003 before joining MSV Duisburg in 2004, who he helped to the top division.[3] He left Duisburg in 2006, returning to Düsseldorf, and then Innsbruck, before signing for Eintracht Trier in 2009.

Managing career[edit]

After coaching SC Kapellen-Erft in one year with much success, Anfang was offered the job as youth coach in the academy of Bayer Leverkusen.[4] He worked as youth coach of the academy from January 2013 to June 2013, and got the job as coach for the under-17 team.[5]

On 29 August 2016, he was appointed as the new coach of Holstein Kiel.[6] On 17 April 2018, 1. FC Köln announced he would become the new head coach for the 2018–19 season.[7] His final match was a promotion–relegation match against VfL Wolfsburg.[8] He finished with a record of 31 wins, 26 draws, and 14 losses.[9]
