Tom Peter Starke (born 18 March 1981) is a former German football goalkeeper. Starke played for six German Bundesliga clubs throughout his career that lasted for 18 seasons. Starke is currently working as a goalkeeper coordinator for the Bayern Munich youth teams.
Starke was signed by Bayern Munich in 2012. He made his first appearance for the club on 31 October 2012 during a DFB-Pokal match against 1. FC Kaiserslautern without conceding any goals. Starke's Bundesliga debut for Bayern came in a 1–0 away win at his previous team TSG 1899 Hoffenheim on 3 March 2013, and on his second Bundesliga appearance, in a match against 1. FC Nürnberg on 13 April, he saved a penalty from Timmy Simons with his face.
Starke announced his retirement on 17 May 2017 and played his final official match on 20 May, in a 4–1 win for FC Bayern Munich against SC Freiburg. He was signed by Bayern as goalkeeping coach coordinator.
Due to the injury of Manuel Neuer, Starke was called back to play for Bayern Munich in the pre-season matches of the 2017–18 season. He was called to be in Bayern's UEFA Champions League squad in September 2017. He made his return with some fine saves in a 1–0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt on 10 December 2017. At the end of the 2017–18 season, Starke retired from professional football for good and went back to his job at the FC Bayern Campus as the goalkeeper coordinator for Bayern's youth teams.
