Florian Kainz (German pronunciation: [ˈfloːʁiaːn ˈkaɪ̯nts];[3][4] born 24 October 1992) is an Austrian professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Bundesliga club 1. FC Köln and the Austria national team.

Club career[edit]

In July 2014, after more than a decade with Sturm Graz, Graz native Kainz transferred to Rapid Wien for an undisclosed fee.[5] He signed for Rapid until summer 2017.[6]

In June 2016, Kainz joined Werder Bremen on a four-year contract, for a reported €3.5 million transfer fee.[7] On 18 March 2017, he scored his first goal for the club in a 3–0 win against Leipzig. Having been introduced as a substitute in the 88th minute he found the net two minutes later in a match that saw all three of Werder Bremen's Austrian players score in the club's highest win of the season.[8][9] Two matches later he assisted the last goal in Werder Bremen’s 5–2 win away to Freiburg via free kick, after being brought onto the pitch in the 76th minute.[10]

In the first match of the 2018–19 season, a 6–1 win against Wormatia Worms in the first round of the DFB-Pokal, Kainz assisted the first goal and scored the second in a "Man of the Match" performance.[11][12]

In January 2019, Kainz joined 1. FC Köln on a three-and-a-half-year deal. The transfer fee paid to Werder Bremen was reported as €3 million.[13][14]

International career[edit]

Kainz made his debut for the senior Austria squad when he came on as a substitute in a friendly against Switzerland in November 2015.[15]
