At club level, Ziege played for Bayern Munich (1990-97), AC Milan (1997-99) and Middlesbrough (1999-2000). In summer 2000 Liverpool F.C. made a £5.5m bid which exactly matched a get-out clause in Ziege's contract. Middlesbrough insisted they had received offers in excess of £8m for Ziege, but were forced contractually to allow Ziege to talk to Liverpool, who then signed him. He made his debut for Liverpool in a 3-2 home win over Manchester City on 9 September, 2000, replacing Steven Gerrard in the second half. Although the Anfield crowd saw flashes of Ziege's brilliance down the left flank during the season, a combination of knee injuries and the improving form of Jamie Carragher, meant he was transferred to Tottenham Hotspur after one year and 32 appearances in all competitions.

On 14 March 2002, Liverpool were fined £20,000 by The Football Association for making an illegal approach for Ziege, while the player himself was fined £10,000. However, by this time Ziege's injury problems were escalating, and by 2004 his contract was terminated by mutual consent so he could return to Germany.

Ziege returned to Germany with Borussia Mönchengladbach in June 2004, but announced his retirement in October 2005, having not played since the previous December due to a persistent ankle injury.

Managerial Career

Following retirement from the game due to injury in October 2005, Ziege picked up his UEFA diploma for coaching. In 2006 he moved into coaching with his last professional club, Borussia Mönchengladbach, where he was named head coach of the club's Under-17 team, succeeding Thomas Schumacher. In 2006-07 the club's U17 team had won ten out of seventeen matches with Ziege in charge when, in March 2007, he was handed the role of Director of Football at the club, as the replacement for the outgoing Peter Pander. At the time of his appointment, with ten matches to go until the end of the season, Mönchengladbach were at the bottom of the Bundesliga, with five points between them and safety. On 15 December 2008 Ziege left Borussia Mönchengladbach.
