Playing careerEdit

Wiesinger, a midfielder, began his professional career with 1. FC Nürnberg, before joining Bayern Munich on a free transfer in 1999. He spent two years at Bayern, winning two German titles and the Champions League, but made few first team appearances before moving to Bayern's rivals TSV 1860 München, where he had previously been a youth team player. He spent two and a half years at 1860, moving on to Wacker Burghausen, his hometown club, in January 2004. He left the club in June 2007 and joined SpVgg Weiden, where he spent one year before retiring.

Managerial careerEdit

FC IngolstadtEdit

He took up his role as coach of FC Ingolstadt's reserve team.[1] Since 9 November 2009, he was caretaker manager of the first team before being later confirmed as manager. Almost exactly a year later, Wiesinger was sacked with Ingolstadt in 17th place in the 2. Bundesliga.

1. FC NürnbergEdit

In April 2011, he returned to 1. FC Nürnberg, to take charge of the club's reserve team. He was promoted to manager of the first team in December 2012, after Dieter Hecking left to take over at VfL Wolfsburg. Wiesinger was sacked by the club on 7 October 2013, the day after a 5–0 home defeat by Hamburger SV in the 2013-14 Bundesliga. On the day of Wiesinger's sacking, the club had scored a total of only five points and remained without a win after the first eight matches of the 2013–2014 Bundesliga, and was in the third last position in the league table. "The recent games showed that no consistent upward trend is developing. It was a very difficult decision, but in the interest of 1. FC Nürnberg we feel forced to act," 1. FC Nürnberg's sporting director Martin Bader said.[2][3]

KFC Uerdingen 05Edit

In July 2017 Wiseinger became the new manager of KFC Uerdingen 05.[4] He left the club by mutual consent on 15 March 2018 despite the club being at first place in Regionalliga West.[5]

Second stint at 1. FC NürnbergEdit

He returned to Nürnberg on 29 June 2020 for the relegation-playoffs.[6]
