Martina Voss-Tecklenburg (born 22 December 1967 as Martina Voss) is a retired German football midfielder, currently coaching the Swiss national team. She previously coached FCR 2001 Duisburg and FF USV Jena.

International career[edit]

Together with Doris Fitschen and Silvia Neid, she is considered one of the most successful German women's soccer players, having won seven national titles and six DFB trophies.

Coaching career[edit]

After the end of her active career as a player, Voss-Tecklenburg worked as a team manager for the Oberliga club SV Straelen. Full-time as a PE teacher association, she takes care of female selection teams in the Lower Rhine.[1] She is also chief editor of the women's football magazine „FF“.

From 12 February 2008 to 17 February 2011 she was the head coach of FCR 2001 Duisburg.[2][3][4] With Duisburg, Voss-Tecklenburg won the UEFA Women's Cup in 2009 and two national cups in 2009 and 2010. Her contract was ended on 17 February 2011.[5] In June 2011 she signed a one-year contract at Bundesliga side FF USV Jena,[6] but she left the team next January as she was appointed the Swiss national team's new coach.[7]

On 1 October 2009, she married the contractor Herman Tecklenburg. From a previous relationship she has a daughter.
