Adam Nemec (born 2 September 1985) is a Slovak professional football player who plays as a striker for Dinamo București and the Slovakia national team. In his career he has mostly played for second division teams in Germany.[2]

Club career[edit]

MŠK Žilina[edit]

When playing for MSK Žilina from 2004 to 2007, the team became Slovakian champion in 2007.

Erzgebirge Aue[edit]

In August 2007, he signed a loan deal with German 2. Bundesliga (Germany's second division) side Erzgebirge Aue where he scored ten goals and provided seven assists in 29 games.[3]

KRC Genk[edit]

On 11 June 2008, Nemec signed a four-year deal with Belgian club KRC Genk. He remained at the club for only one season however, in which he scored four goals in 21 matches.

1. FC Kaiserslautern[edit]

In July 2009, he was involved in talks over a move to Scottish Premier League club Heart of Midlothian which ultimately failed.[4] On 28 July 2009 however, Nemec signed a three-year contract for 1. FC Kaiserslautern, returning to Germany's second division.

Reportedly falling from a cherry tree in his garden in June 2011, Nemec suffered injuries including broken ribs, a broken collarbone that required surgery, and a concussion which kept him out of football for about three months.[5][6][7] He returned to training in early September.[8] He left the club during the mid-season break in January 2012, after having appeared in 61 league matches and scoring nine goals in his two and a half seasons.

FC Ingolstadt[edit]

On 27 January 2012, Nemec joined FC Ingolstadt until the end of the season.[9]

Union Berlin[edit]

On 24 July 2012, he signed a two-year contract with Union Berlin in the German second division until June 2014.[10][11] In December 2013, his contract was extended for another two years until 2016 including a mutual extension clause for another year.[12] Only five months later though, in April 2014, he was allowed to leave the club effective the end of the 2013–14 season,[13] however he stayed with Union.

After playing in just five games through the first half of the season, he was released.[14][15] Union manager Norbert Düwel said: "It is a pity that cooperation has not worked as both sides had imagined. Under these circumstances, it is better to part ways."[16]

New York City FC[edit]

On 25 January 2015, after Nemec's contract with Union Berlin was dissolved by mutual agreement, he signed with Major League Soccer club New York City FC.[17] Originally a starter, he lost his starting lineup position due to his poor play.[18][19] In his nine games playing for the team, he was disappointing and didn't make an impact.[20][21] In 594 minutes he did not score a single goal and did not have a single assist.[22][23]

On 31 August 2015, New York City FC and Nemec agreed to a mutual termination of his contract. [24]

Willem II[edit]

On 31 August 2015, fifteen minutes before the closing of the transfer window, Nemec signed a one-year deal with Dutch Eredivisie side Willem II, continuing his career habit of bouncing from club to club.[25][26]

Dinamo București[edit]

On 06 September 2016, Adam Nemec signed a two years deal with romanian side Dinamo București.

International career[edit]

Nemec debuted with the senior team on 9 February 2011, but he scored his first goal in a game against Malta over three years later, under Ján Kozák, who used him in seven of 10 games in a Euro 2016 qualifying campaign, towards which Nemec contributed with three goals.
