Wolfgang Hesl (born 13 January 1986) is a German professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Arminia Bielefeld.


Hesl joined Hamburger SV in 2004 and was part of the club's first team since the beginning of the 2005–06 season. After making over 70 appearances for the club's reserve team in the Regionalliga, he made his Bundesliga debut for Hamburg on 17 May 2008 in their final league game of the 2007–08 season, a 7–0 win at home to Karlsruher SC, coming on as a substitute for Frank Rost in the 74th minute. He also appeared in four UEFA Europa League matches for Hamburg during the 2009–10 season. When Jaroslav Drobný joined Hamburg in the summer of 2010, Hesl would have been only third choice and was therefore loaned out to Austrian side SV Ried for one season. He returned to Hamburger SV at the end of the 2010–11 season, but as he would still have been number three goalkeeper in Hamburg he decided to join Dynamo Dresden.[1]

In 2012, he signed with then promoted Bundesliga club Greuther Fürth where he replaced Max Grün as number one keeper of the club in 2014. Hesl joined the squad of 2. Bundesliga club Arminia Bielefeld in 2015. With the club, he has made 64 appearances in two seasons.

On 11 June 2017, it was announced that Hesl has signed with 3. Liga club Würzburger Kickers until 2019.[2]

Personal life[edit]

Hesl is married to Stephanie Ries-Hesl since December 2009.[3]
