Ralf Sievers (born October 30, 1961 in Lüneburg ) is a former German soccer player . He is currently a trainer at Teutonia Uelzen .


Like his brother Jörg , he began his career with the Lower Saxony club SV Eddelstorf in the Uelzen district . Until 1982 Ralf Sievers played for Lüneburger SK (LSK) and led them - at times together with Rainer Zobel - from the 5th to the 3rd division. From 1982 to 1991, the defender and midfielder played 232 games in the Bundesliga for Eintracht Frankfurt and FC St. Pauli , in which he scored ten goals. From 1991 to 1993 he also played 44 games (1 goal) in the 2nd Bundesliga for St. Pauli. 1988 was the most successful year of his career. With Frankfurt he won the DFB Cup in 1988 on May 28th, and in September he was part of the German team that won the bronze medal at the Olympic Games in Seoul . On top of that, Sievers in the Frankfurt Eintracht jersey scored the only two European Cup goals of his career in the round of 16 of the European Cup Winners' Cup against Sakaryaspor in the two legs.

After his career as a professional, he finally played again with the LSK and again made it to the 3rd division. After a short time at Lüneburger SV as a coach, Sievers took over as coach of LSK, which has now found itself in the 5th league and was renamed FC Hansa Lüneburg after a bankruptcy and merger with Lüneburger SV. In January 2011 he took over the coaching position at Teutonia Uelzen .

In 1981 Ralf Sievers became Junior World Champion with the German U-20s in Australia alongside other players like Roland Wohlfarth and Michael Zorc .

His brother Jörg was a goalkeeper at Hannover 96 and has been a goalkeeper coach there since 2003. Like his brother Ralf, he started his career with Lüneburger SK.

In September 2012, both hit the headlines when Ralf reactivated his 46-year-old brother Jörg and put in a goal for his red-banned regular goalkeeper in a national league game, but with this action the actual substitute goalkeeper Maurice Maus of the team squad was so angry that he upset the club left.

In September 2015 he and SV Ilmenau took second place behind Arminia Bielefeld at the German championship of the over 50 age group in Berlin . He was named the best player.


He is the brother of Jörg Sievers ( goalkeeping coach and former Hannover 96 player ). His son Jan-André Sievers is also a soccer player
