Hans Jürgen Riediger (born December 20, 1955 in Finsterwalde), is a former German soccer player. Hans Jürgen Riediger played for youth team Motor Finsterwalde Süd and represented Berlin club BFC Dynamo for 14 years. The striker came to prominence with 34 youth international matches and made his league debut with Dynamo Berlin against Hansa Rostock on August 22, 1973. On 26 March 1975, he made his debut for the East German national team against Bulgaria. In the 1976 Summer Games in Montreal, Riediger won the gold medal with the East German team. With his numerous goals he was heavily involved in BFC Dynamo's 5 championships between 1979 and 1983. Altogether Riediger made 193 top level appearances, scoring 105 goals. Despite his outstanding goal ratio he never became top scorer of the first league of the GDR. 1982/83 was his last season and at the same time also his strongest. In the first 15 first league games Riediger scored 16 goals. However Riediger badly hurt his knee, meaning both the season and his career were prematurely terminated. Riediger made 41 international appearances for East Germany and scored six goals. After his career ended, Riediger worked as a youth coach at Dynamo Berlin. In addition, he was coach of the regional clubs TSG Fredersdorf and Einheit Königswusterhausen .

His son Marcel is also a soccer player. Amongst others, he played for Dynamo Berlin and Erzgebirge Aue.
