Matthias Sindelar (10 February 1903 - 23 January 1939) was an Austrian footballer.

He played centre-forward for the celebrated Austria national team of the early 1930s known as the Wunderteam, which he captained at the 1934 World Cup.

Known as "The Mozart of football" or 'Der Papierene' 'the Paper-man' for his slight build, he was voted the best Austrian footballer of the 20th Century in a 1999 poll by the International Federation of Football History and Statistics (IFFHS) and was named Austria's sportsman of the century a year before.
