Markus Brzenska's parents, Joachim and Halina, and his older brothers, Sebastian and Marcin, were originally from the Upper Silesian town of Bytom (German Beuthen). They immigrated to Germany as ethnic Germans (Aussiedler), settling in Lünen near Dortmund, where Markus was born a few weeks after their arrival.
Without any top level match experience, he was included in the starting line-up by coach Matthias Sammer in Borussia Dortmund's match against Bayern Munich on 9 November 2003. His debut ended in a send-off during the first half.
In 2004, when coach Bert van Marwijk arrived, such like some other players with whom the coach was less familiar, Brzenska's ability was overlooked. Eventually, his effort turned things around. He returned to the first team squad during the first half of the 2004–05 season and established his place in the starting line-up since then.
During the 2008–09 season, he was loaned to 2. Bundesliga club MSV Duisburg. At the end of the loan, Duisburg were unable to pay the transfer fee that Dortmund were asking for, so he returned to Borussia Dortmund who then sold him to Energie Cottbus.
His family comes from Poland so he is eligible to play for Poland. In October 2010 he declared his intention to play for the Poland national football team. He has played 15 games for the German under-21 team.
