Lasse Sobiech (born January 18, 1991 in Schwerte ) is a German football player . He is under contract with 1. FC Köln and is used in central defense.




He started playing football at VfL Schwerte at the age of four and moved to Borussia Dortmund in 2003 . There he went through the youth departments and reached four finals with the B and A juniors , all of which were lost: in 2007 and 2008 the final for the German B youth championship , and in 2009 the playoffs for the A youth championship and the DFB -Junior Club Cup .

Pro at Borussia Dortmund

In 2009 he got a contract with Borussia until the summer of 2012 and was then added to the squad of the second team for the third division season 2009/10 , although he could have played one more season for the A-youth. So he made his professional league debut at Wacker Burghausen on July 25, 2009, the first match day , which ended 3: 4 from Dortmund's point of view. In the further course of the season he remained a regular player and played 32 games. He scored once in the goal, at the same time his premier goal in senior football. He headed the 4-1 away defeat at VfL Osnabrück for the interim equalization. With his team he finished 18th in the table and was relegated to the Regionalliga West .

Sobiech itself, however, was after the departure of Uwe Hünemeier to Energie Cottbus in the Bundesliga promoted cadres Dortmund. However , he missed the preparation for the 2010/11 season partly due to a curious accident: he dangled his feet in the water in the port of Hamburg and was rammed by an excursion boat that crushed his leg. As a result, he was then mainly used in the reserve team and only moved up to the first team if one of the three other BVB central defenders ( Mats Hummels , Neven Subotić and Felipe Santana ) failed . Sobiech did not appear in the Bundesliga, but was part of the team that won the German championship this season .

On loan to St. Pauli and in Fürth

In order to be able to collect match practice at a higher level, Sobiech extended his contract with Borussia Dortmund after the end of the season and was loaned to the 2nd Bundesliga for a year to the Bundesliga relegated FC St. Pauli . For the 2012/13 season he moved on loan to Bundesliga promoted SpVgg Greuther Fürth , for whom he made his first division debut on August 31, 2012 (2nd matchday) in a 1-0 win in the away game against 1. FSV Mainz 05 . He scored his first Bundesliga goal on October 19, 2012 (8th matchday) in a 3-3 draw in the away game against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim with the goal of the final score in stoppage time.

Hamburger SV

For the 2013/14 season , Sobiech moved to Hamburger SV . He signed a three-year contract until June 30, 2016. Sobiech played his first competitive game in the HSV jersey against SV Schott Jena in the DFB Cup on August 4, 2013. At HSV, Sobiech could not prevail against his opponents in central defense and came only on ten Bundesliga appearances.

Return to FC St. Pauli

For the 2014/15 season , Sobiech initially moved to FC St. Pauli on loan . In the city rivals, he came to 31 second division appearances and contributed with four goals to stay in the league. For the 2015/16 season , Sobiech was finally signed and given a contract that runs until the end of the season with an option for another season.

1. FC Cologne

On March 23, 2018 it was announced that his contract, which expired in summer, would not be extended and that Sobiech would play for 1. FC Köln from the 2018/19 season . Sobiech played for the Rhinelander in 17 second division games and was out for three months during the winter due to a broken toe. At the end of the season he rose with Cologne as a champion in the Bundesliga. As a result, he only played once in the top German league.

On loan to Belgium

Until the end of the 2019/20 season , the defender was loaned to Belgium at the end of January 2020 to the first division club Royal Excel Mouscron , trained by German Bernd Hollerbach . Sobiech completed all six possible games over the full playing time and was able to score one goal. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic , the season was canceled prematurely, Mouscron was tenth at this point.

Return to Cologne

The defender returned to Cologne due to the termination before the loan contract expired. However, since he is not allowed to take part in Bundesliga matches, he keeps fit with the regional league team, whose game operations have been interrupted.

National team

In 2009 Sobiech was appointed to a selection of the DFB for the first time . He played an international tournament with the U18 team in the United Arab Emirates , in which Germany and the hosts also participated in Japan and Egypt.

After three games in this age group, he was included in the U19 selection . With this he first played a few friendlies that served as preparation for the upcoming qualification for the 2010 European Championship . On this occasion, Thomas Nörenberg, the team's assistant coach, presented all the nominated players on the DFB website and certified Sobiech with a great physical presence, a good eye, and an increased sense of responsibility, which is why he already held the position of captain in one game . The German team defeated Poland 4-1 in the first game of the so-called elite round, but then lost to Slovakia (1: 2) and the Netherlands (0: 3) and thus missed out on the finals in France.

Then Sobiech moved up to the U21 national team . They had just missed qualifying for the 2011 European Championship , so the last two competitive games were used to rebuild with younger players. In October 2012, Sobiech and the DFB team qualified for the 2013 U21 European Championship in Israel. In the second leg of the play-offs, the German team beat Switzerland 3-1. In this game, Sobiech scored his first goal in the national jersey with the 2-0. On May 28, 2013 he was appointed to the final squad for the 2013 European Championship in Israel by coach Rainer Adrion .
