Philipp Prosenik (born 1 March 1993 in Vienna, Austria) is a forward who formerly played for Chelsea's youth and reserve teams.


Pre-Chelsea career

The son of a former Austrian international striker (Christian), Philipp was chased by some of Europe’s elite including AC Milan and Bayern Munich. He opted for Chelsea in part because of the club’s education policy alongside his footballing development.

Chelsea career

After a good start in England, with goals in pre-season and early in the campaign proper, injuries took their toll on his career. A concussion left him sidelined for weeks on end, suffering memory loss, and knee meniscus problems meant a long-term stay on the sidelines. He convalesced well and returned ahead of time, finding the back of the net against towards the end of the 2009-10 season away to Portsmouth.

Unfortunately, after a very impressive start to the 2010-11 season, Philipp suffered another serious knee injury which would rule him out for six months. He returned for the 2011-12 pre-season and played well, but more ailments made the first half of his campaign another stop-start affair.

In January 2012 Prosenik left Chelsea and joined AC Milan on a free transfer.


Philipp has represented Austria at Under-16, Under-17, and Under-20 levels.
