Christoph Jank (born October 14, 1973 in Zwettl ) is an Austrian football player . He is the older brother of Alexander Jank , who is also a professional footballer.


Before starting his professional career, Christoph Jank began his career at the Viennese amateur club SV Kagran. The trained defender finally came to SV Austria Salzburg in 1999 via Vienna , ASKÖ Klingenbach and SK Vorwärts Steyr . In the 1999/2000 season he reached the cup final with Austria Salzburg, which however was lost to the Grazer AK after a 2-2 draw after extra time on penalties with just 3: 4.

After the takeover of Austria Salzburg by Red Bull in June 2005, Jank was toying with a club change and also had offers from the second German Bundesliga and the first Greek league. After coach Kurt Jara had clearly spoken out in favor of the defender who would serve the team, Jank extended his contract in Salzburg for another year until 2006.

From the 2006/07 season, the 34-year-old central defender played at SV Ried .

In the summer of 2008 he moved to the Eastern League to relegated from the First League SC-ESV Parndorf 1919 .

In September 2015, Christoph Jank signed a contract as the sporting director of the regional league team Wiener Sportklub . After separating from Andreas Reisinger , Jank also took over as coach at the sports club in June 2016.
