Mustafa Doğan (born 1 January 1976) is a retired German footballer of Turkish descent who played as a central defender.[1]

During his professional career, he played for teams in both his native country and land of adoption, representing the German national team in the late 90's.

Football career[edit]

A native of the village of Dedeçam, in Yalvaç district, Isparta, Doğan started his career playing for TV Asberg, a small German club. At 13, he signed his first professional contract, with KFC Uerdingen 05, having made his first-team debut on 15 May 1994, in a second division match at Wuppertaler SV.

In 1996, Doğan transferred to Istanbul's Fenerbahçe SK. He stayed there for seven years, the first five as a starter, then switched back to Germany, signing with Bundesliga outfit 1. FC Köln. On 18 October 2003, he netted his sole top flight goal, in a 1–0 home win against SC Freiburg.

Beşiktaş J.K. took it upon themselves to bring the defender back to the Turkish first division and signed Doğan in 2004–05. Hampered by several injuries, he retired in 2007, at 31.

After also having represented Germany's U21, Doğan was fully capped twice by his adoptive nation in 1999, the first in July, a 2–0 defeat with the United States in the FIFA Confederations Cup, playing his second and last three months later in a UEFA Euro 2000 qualifier against, of all the teams, Turkey. A goalless home draw was the outcome.

After retiring, Doğan worked as football commentator for Turkish sports television NTV Spor.
