The list of former 2. Bundesliga players who have found success in MLS is an impressive one and it continues to grow with each passing transfer window.

Midfielder Hany Mukhtar began his career in his native Germany with Hertha BSC II before eventually joining Nashville SC where he won the league’s MVP award and the Golden Boot as the top scorer in MLS with 23 goals last year.

Brazilian forward João Klauss cut his teeth in the German second division at TSG 1899 Hoffenheim II and he has five goals for the expansion St. Louis City SC in its first MLS season this year. Likewise, German midfielder Timothy Tillman (LAFC) and Venezuelan winger Sergio Córdova (Vancouver Whitecaps) have also impressed in MLS after turning out for clubs in 2. Bundesliga earlier in their careers.

Toronto FC newcomer Prince Owusu is the latest player to move from the German second-tier to MLS. Owusu, 26, recently signed with TFC as a free agent, putting pen to paper on a deal through 2024, with a club option for 2025. Owusu has spent the majority of his career in Germany's lower leagues, most recently with SSV Jahn Regensburg of the 2. Bundesliga where he scored 10 goals in 34 appearances during the 2022-23 season.
