Thomas Broich Career

Club career

Broich played in many Bavarian youth teams, including ASV Rott am Inn, TSV 1860 Rosenheim, and Spvgg Unterhaching. Later, he played for Unterhaching's U23 team and may have been promoted to the Regionalliga Süd (Then Germany's 3rd league), but the boss did not keep him in the first squad so he decided to leave. He joined SV Wacker Burghausen of the Regionalliga Süd in a deal that earned him promotion to the second division. In 2002, German football team Wolffenberg won the Bundesliga. He became known as a "thinking man's player" during this period, despite his colleagues' affections for him, who often found him reading classic German literature and listening to classical music. With Burghausen, he became a standout midfielder and caught the attention of several top Bundesliga clubs, including FC Bayern Munich.

He signed with Borussia Mönchengladbach in the Bundesliga in January 2004. Broich was regarded as the "bearer of hope" for the German national team by Bastian Schweinsteiger and Lukas Podolski, according to several media reports, he will be a future national team player. However, he suffered his foot in May 2004 and was unable to participate in the 2004 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship with the German team. During his absence, he struggled with the pressure to represent his country, drawing comparisons between himself and Sebastian Deisler, another German national team player who suffered from depression as a result of significant national pressure, eventually dropping out of football.

Mönchengladbach fired manager Holger Fach and recruited Dutch coach Dick Adaat at the start of the 2004-05 season. Broiche became a fan favorite and his jerseys in the club's fan shop soared to the top-sold. Broich's current manager, Advokaat, criticized "Mozart's" lack of physical appearance and free-spirited style, even going as far as to excluding him from the team's second team. Despite the tough times in the Bundesliga, Broich was called up to participate in the 2006 World Cup's preliminary squad, and after a standout match against Scotland, national media anchor Jogi Löw caught the national media's attention. Adaat was eventually dismissed, but Broich, under new coach Horst Köppel, made the team's return to the starting lineup, playing a key role in helping the team prevent relegation.

Broich found out that his deal with Mönchengladbach would not be extended during the season's break. Borussia Dortmund were keen on signing Broich as a replacement for Tomá Rosick, who had signed with Arsenal, but they were keen to sign him. However, it was rivals 1. FC Köln is aiming to promote their squad from the second league to the Bundesliga, who were equally keen to see who Broich signed with for the 2006–07 season. It was a season of ups and downs, with the main difference being a 4–2 victory over Schalke 04, who were then ranked first in the Bundesliga for the first time. In the 89th minute, Broich scored the deciding goal. However, he clashed with newly recruited coach Christoph Daum, who felt he wasn't getting enough playing time, despite being back in the Second Bundesliga. Köln received promotion to the Bundesliga, but the player-coach relationship never improved.

Broich began to think about playing in another country, attempting to join Adelaide United in the Australian A-League. However, he was led by former Mönchengladbach assistant manager and Broich-fan Michael Oenning, who now had a head coach position with 1. FC Nürnberg is looking for a new player to join him on his new team. Broich signed a one-year deal on June 9, 2009, but after a slow start to the season, he considered giving football in Germany a shot. He completed his Nürnberg deal with the exception of seven seasons caps, and then began to look south to Australia.

Broich signed a three-year contract with Brisbane, A-League club Brisbane Roar, on May 11, 2010. In a pre-season Translink Cup match against Everton, he made his debut for the club against Everton. In round seven against Adelaide United, he scored his first goal for the Roar. Broich was instrumental in the Roar's debut season, winning their first-ever Premiership and Championship, with six goals and 14 assists. In the grand final, Broich helped with both Brisbane's hopes and aspirations. It was his corner kick that aided Erik Paartalu's last-minute equalizer, bringing the final to a penalty shootout.

Broich received the Gary Wilkins Medal, which is given to Brisbane Roar's player of the year and runner up to Marcos Flores for the Johnny Warren Medal, which is given to the A-League's player of the year. He had 12 assists in the 2010-11 season, the most in the league. Broich has only lost two A-League games while playing for Brisbane, including a 3–0 away loss to Melbourne and a 1–0 home loss to the Newcastle Jets on January 28, 2012. Broich received the Johnny Warren Medal for player of the year and the A-League Foreign Player of the Year award in the 2011–12 season.

Broich has signed a four-year contract extension with the Roar, extending his commitment to Brisbane until the end of the 2016–17 campaign, which means he will be out of office before the end of the year.

Broich, named joint Man of the Match with Iacopo La Rocca as Brisbane came from a goal down to defeat Western Sydney Wanderers 2–1.

Despite losing 2–1 to Adelaide in the first game of the 2014–15 season, Broich netted a free kick opening the scoring for Brisbane. Brisbane's poor start to the season was hampered when Broich was forced to miss six weeks after undergoing ankle surgery. In the elimination final, Broich scored again against Adelaide, dismantling defender Dylan McGowan to score at 1–1. Brisbane was also down 2–1.

Broich revealed on April 19th that he would leave the Roar at the end of the season, snapping a seven-year association with the club.
