Sporting Kansas City bolster attack with addition of Krisztian Nemeth

Sporting Kansas City have continued to rebuild their squad ahead of the 2015 MLS season by adding Hungarian international forward Krisztian Nemeth.

The news comes one day after the club re-signed star striker Dom Dwyer to a long-term contract and Peter Vermes is delighted to have another attacking option in place for next season.

“Krisztian [Nemeth] is a player who has extensive experience playing in a 4-3-3 system,” Vermes said.

“He also fits well in the overall model of play for Sporting Kansas City and we look forward to his adaptation.”

Nemeth is a vastly experienced player having played in Hungary, England, Greece and most recently the Netherlands, but at 25, he has a long career ahead of him.

He joined Liverpool as an 18-year-old in 2007 and although he never played a competitive first-team game with the Reds, he was a star in the Premier League Reserve League – ending his first year as top scorer in the division.

He trained with the likes of Fernando Torres, Steven Gerrard, Xabi Alonso, Javier Mascherano and Robbie Keane while at Anfield and he can’t wait to experience the new challenge of soccer in the US.

“I am very excited to be joining Sporting Kansas City,” he said. “It’s an exciting time to join the club and MLS. Peter [Vermes] is a great coach and I look forward to working with him and the team.”

Nemeth has been without a club since leaving Eredivisie side Roda JC Kerkrade in July. He scored eight goals and recorded six assists in 24 games during the 2013-14 campaign and will hope to make a real impact with Sporting Kansas City in 2015.
