Tim Sebastian (born January 17, 1984 in Leipzig ) is a former German soccer player .


Tim Sebastian was born in Leipzig in 1984. Due to health problems that were attributed to the bad air in the Leipzig area, his parents moved with him to Wolgast on the Baltic Sea after 2½ years on the advice of doctors .


Sebastian started playing football at Motor Wolgast in 1993. Here he played in the D-Jugend until 1996. Then he was spotted and switched to the youth team at Greifswalder SC . In 1999 he received an inquiry from Hansa Rostock . He accepted the offer, attended the newly built boarding school and initially played in the club's B youth team. In 2003 he passed his Abitur at the CJD Jugenddorf-Christophorusschule Rostock .

From 2001 Sebastian belonged to the second team at Hansa, which played in the soccer Oberliga Nordost . He made his debut in the professional team of the Hanseatic city on November 7, 2004, when he was appointed to the starting line-up against VfB Stuttgart by coach Juri Schlünz . In the 2004/05 season he played a total of eight Bundesliga games for the first team of FC Hansa, which was relegated to the 2nd Bundesliga at the end of the season . He scored his first Bundesliga goal on April 30, 2005 in a 2-1 win against Hertha BSC . Two years later Sebastian managed to get promoted again with Hansa in the 2006/07 season .

For the 2008/09 season , Sebastian moved to Karlsruher SC on a free transfer . After the Badeners went down, his contract, dated until 2011, lost its validity, after which he returned to Rostock after just one year. But Sebastian also got relegated with Hansa in the 2009/10 season , but this time to the 3rd division , which meant that his contract with Rostock also lost its validity.

Sebastian then returned to his hometown Leipzig and moved to the Regionalliga Nord for RB Leipzig , where he signed a four-year contract until June 30, 2014 and was immediately named team captain. Sebastian made 27 appearances this season and scored one goal. He clearly missed the targeted promotion to the 3rd division with RB. For the new 2011/12 season , a new coach came with Peter Pacult . This determined Daniel Frahn as the new captain. Sebastian made 19 appearances in the season and scored three goals. The third division promotion was missed again. With the promotion it finally worked in the 2012/13 season . Sebastian played eleven games in the regular season and was also substituted on in the second relegation game.

On January 14, 2016, Tim Sebastian moved to SC Paderborn 07 within the 2nd division . He signed a contract dated June 30, 2018. At the beginning of the 2017/18 season, SC Paderborn and Sebastian agreed to terminate the contract early.

When DFB Sebastian first came in 2000 to use in the U-15 team. Until 2004, he had one more assignment each year in the youth teams of the DFB.

He has been studying psychology at the University of Leipzig since the 2017/18 winter semester . On January 14, 2018, he returned to RB Leipzig as a team manager. After the 2018/19 season, his position was filled by Timmo Hardung under the new coach Julian Nagelsmann .
