Niklas Sule Biography

Niklas Sule is a professional footballer who plays for the German national team. Born on the 3rd of September, 1995, Sule plays as a center back and is currently with Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga.


Sule started his career as a striker with Rot-Weib Walldorf and then went to Eintracht Frankfurt. He played for them until the 2008-09 season. Niklas matured very fast, both football-wise and personally. He was learning after every game.

He moved to SV Darmstadt 98 which is a club in Germany for the 2009-10 season.


Sule made his international debut at the age of 16 with the German U17 team at the 2012 European U17 football championship.

Though the team emerged as the runners up of the tournament, Sule did not pull up any notable performances. He didn’t score a goal nor was named in the team of the tournament.

Rise to Glory

Sule’s top moment was when he was selected to play for Germany in the 2016 Summer Olympics. The team won the silver medal in the football tournament. They lost to Brazil in the finals. Sule scored the 4th penalty but the team finished at 4-5.

Sule has also represented the German team in 2016 against Finland and Norway. He had done reasonably well in both these games.

Low Points

While playing for the youth sides, Sule was making reckless tackles and giving away free-kicks in dangerous areas. He was cautioned three times at the U17 European Championship in 2012.

Sule is a strong center-back which can be a weakness sometimes as mobile forwarder went past him in a flash and he wasn’t able to catch them up in his early seasons with the youth clubs.

Club Career

Sule made his debut for Hoffenheim against Hamburger in a Bundesliga game in May 2013. His team lost the game 4-1. After having a successful period with Hoffenheim, Bayern Munich signed Sule for the 2017 season.

He scored the first goal of the 2017-18 Bundesliga season against Bayer 04 Leverkusen with a header. The young player attracted interests from top clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Napoli but he chose to stay with Bayern Munich and develop his skills there.
