Albert Rusnák (born 7 July 1994) is a Slovak footballer who plays for Dutch Eredivisie club SC Cambuur on loan from Manchester City. He made his debut in the Football League in 2013 while on loan at League One (third-tier) club Oldham Athletic, and also spent time on loan at Championship (second-tier) club Birmingham City. He plays as a right winger. Rusnák's father, also called Albert Rusnák, is himself a former professional footballer and manager.

Career[edit]

Rusnák played youth football in Slovakia for MFK Košice from a very young age, before signing for Manchester City in 2010,[3] where he joined the club's academy side. After three years of youth and reserve-team football, he signed for Football League One side Oldham Athletic on loan.[4] Rusnák made his first senior appearance as a substitute in a league game against Tranmere Rovers on 31 August 2013, in a match that they lost by a score of one goal to nil.[5] His first start came three days later, in an away Football League Trophy win over Shrewsbury Town.[6] On 17 September, Rusnák's loan was cut short and he returned to City.[7]

On 21 January 2014, Rusnák joined Football League Championship (second-tier) club Birmingham City on a month's youth loan.[8] He went straight into the starting eleven for the FA Cup defeat to Swansea City the following Saturday.[9] On 18 February 2014, Rusnák extended his loan spell until the conclusion of the 2013–14 season.[10]
