Matthias Maucksch (born 11 June 1969) is a German former footballer[2] who played as midfielder or defender. He now works as a coach, but is currently unemployed, having been sacked by Dynamo Dresden, the club where he began his career.

Playing career[edit]

Maucksch came through the youth system at Dynamo Dresden, and made his debut in the DDR-Oberliga in 1987. He stayed with Dynamo after reunification, and played in the Bundesliga for four seasons, his 118 appearances the club record at this level. After Dynamo's double relegation in 1995, he joined 2. Bundesliga side VfL Wolfsburg, where he remained for two years, leaving after their promotion to the Bundesliga. After one year back in Saxony with VfB Leipzig, he returned to the Bundesliga with 1. FC Nuremberg, but only made five league appearances and left after a year. After a similarly unproductive season with Energie Cottbus, he moved into amateur football in Saxony, playing for FV Dresden 06 and VfL Pirna-Copitz.

International career[edit]

He earned one cap for the East German national team, in one of the team's last games, a 3–0 defeat against France in 1990.

Coaching career[edit]

After the end of his playing career, Maucksch went into coaching, taking over at Döbelner SC in early 2007. In October of the same year, he was appointed as manager of Dynamo Dresden's reserve team, replacing Jan Seifert, who had stepped up to the assistant manager's role. In his second season in charge, he led the team to victory in both the Landesliga Sachsen and the Sachsenpokal. Following this success, he was appointed as manager of Dynamo's first team in October 2009, after the sacking of Ruud Kaiser. Maucksch managed to steer the club clear of relegation, and in the following season within an outside chance of a playoff place, but was sacked in April 2011 after a run of five games without a win.
