Christopher Buchtmann (born 25 April 1992) is a German footballer who plays as a left winger for FC St. Pauli in the 2. Bundesliga.
Buchtmann started his career at Hannover 96 before joining Borussia Dortmund when he was thirteen. He moved to England joining Liverpool youth academy. In February 2010, he left Liverpool for a reported transfer fee of £100,000 to join Fulham, where he was in the development squad after signing an 18-month contract.
However after three months at the club, Buchtmann left Fulham to return to Germany and sign with 1. FC Köln. After two years of playing for the reserves, he made his debut for the relegated club, coming on as a substitute for Sławomir Peszko in the 68th minute as Köln lost 4–1 against Freiburg. He added another appearance in the last game of the season, in a 4–1 defeat to Bayern Munich.
In July, after a training camp in preparation of the 2012–13 season, Buchtmann was one of five players demoted to the reserve squad by coach Holger Stanislawski.
In late August, Buchtmann left Köln to join FC St. Pauli after his contract with Köln was terminated. In January 2013, he signed a new contract with the club until 2015.
The 2013–14 season was a breakthrough for him, as he established himself in the first team. In late January, he signed a new contract with the club, which would keep him until 2016.
In March 2016, Buchtmann agreed to a contract extension until 2019.
Buchtmann represents the German national team, playing under 15, under 16, under 17, under 18, under 19 and under 20. Buchtmann was captain for the national team in the squad that lead Germany winning the UEFA European Under-17 Championship. As a result of his performance, Buchtmann was named by the UEFA as one of the most promising stars in the future.
