Daniel Klewer (born March 4, 1977 in Rostock ) is a former German soccer goalkeeper who was most recently under contract with 1. FC Nürnberg in the Bundesliga .

Career as a player

Hansa Rostock

Klewer's career at Hansa Rostock began at the age of six. Here he played in all of the club's youth teams before he appeared in the senior division for the first time towards the end of the 1996/97 season - albeit in the second team. In the following season he was appointed to the professional squad for the first time, where he was allowed to sit on the bench as a substitute goalkeeper behind Martin Pieckenhagen after Perry Bräutigam was injured . Until the 2001/02 season, however, Klewer was only able to assert himself as the regular goalkeeper of the FC Hansa reserve team and never played in the Bundesliga.

After a serious injury to regular goalkeeper Mathias Schober and a red suspension from substitute goalkeeper Perry Bräutigam, Klewer came on March 16, 2002, the 27th match day of the 2001/02 season , to his first division appearance. This was followed by seven more missions by the end of the season, which meant relegation.

In the following two seasons, Klewer only played two more Bundesliga games (both in 2003/04 ), so he left FC Hansa Rostock in summer 2004 after 21 years.

1. FC Nuremberg

He switched to the league competitor 1. FC Nuremberg . In the first year he made five Bundesliga appearances there before he was injured and was represented by number three Dirk Langerbein . 2005/06 played Raphael Schäfer by and Klewer was only twice in the German Cup between the posts. After the season, his contract was extended for another two years.

In the following year, Klewer was almost always number two on the bench and was only substituted on for the injured Schäfer on the last first half of the season. He also had to replace Schäfer in the subsequent DFB Cup round of 16 against SpVgg Unterhaching on December 19, 2006. He saved four penalties on penalties and ensured a narrow 2-1 win for Nuremberg. Nürnberg was thus back in the quarter-finals for the first time since the 1995/96 season. There Klewer was substituted on for his captain Raphael Schäfer in the 118th minute in the game against Hannover 96 shortly before the start of the new penalty shoot-out and saved two penalties in his club's 4-2 victory, which finally gave him the reputation of a penalty killer. Nürnberg eventually won the cup, and although Klewer was no longer featured in the last two games, he became one of the cup heroes in 2007.

After Schäfer's departure, Jaromír Blažek was signed as the new goalkeeper of FCN, but initially it remained open whether he or Klewer would take the place between the posts. In the first League Cup round Klewer played the entire time, as in the first round of the German Cup in 2007/08 . From the first Bundesliga game, however, Blažek was specified as the goalkeeper. In the second round of the DFB Cup on October 31, Klewer played again for the full time, including extra time. In the following penalty shootout, however, he did not save a penalty and Nürnberg lost 7: 6 i. E. (2: 2, 1: 1, 1: 0) against FC Carl Zeiss Jena . At the beginning of the second half of the season Blažek showed weaker performances and came under criticism from the fans. He was particularly resentful of the goal conceded in the UEFA Cup in Lisbon and the equalizer by FC Energie Cottbus on matchday 21, so that the audience shouted “Daniel Klewer” chants after this game. On March 7th, 2008 Thomas von Heesen actually announced Daniel Klewer as goalkeeper for the game against Hamburger SV on matchday 23. The coach said: “We're not throwing anyone out, we will rebuild Blaza now” and “He [Klewer] is not number two in a Bundesliga club for nothing and therefore solid enough to survive in this situation.” Daniel Klewer was behind First goalkeeper for over ten years. The home game against Hamburg ended 0-0, with Klewer showing two particularly strong saves. But Klewer's time as number one only lasted three games. Since he contracted tonsillitis before the 26th matchday , Jaromír Blažek played again in the home game against Bayern Munich (final score 1: 1). Since he showed a stable performance there, he got his regular place back. A short time later, however, Klewer was supposed to be in goal again, as Blažek had to be replaced in the 57th minute due to a torn muscle fiber in the abdominal wall in the away game against VfB Stuttgart and was out until the end of the season. With a total of ten league games, the 2007/08 season was the richest in Klewer's career. Blažek left the club at the end of the year. Since the 2008/09 season, however, Raphael Schäfer returned after an unsuccessful year in Stuttgart, Klewer was again number two and completed his only competitive game that season in the relegation second leg against Energie Cottbus, where he came on in the 87th minute.

Since July 2009 Klewer has been working as a goalkeeper coach in the youth team of 1. FC Nürnberg. He stayed with the first team as a “stand-by professional”. His place on the bench was taken by the young player Alexander Stephan , who also represented Schäfer during a suspension. Klewer was still part of the squad in the 2010/11 season , but was not used and finally ended his career at the end of the season.


Since July 2010 Klewer has been the goalkeeping coach for the youth departments of 1. FC Nürnberg.
