Playing career[edit]

Club career[edit]

An ethnic Hungarian,[2] Borbély was born in Czechoslovakia and began playing football for his home town club FK DAC 1904 Dunajská Streda until joining Artmedia Petržalka, the club where he would enjoy his greatest success.[3] He captained the Artmedia Petržalka side which reached the group stages of the 2005–06 UEFA Champions League.[4] Following this success, he moved to German Bundesliga side 1. FC Kaiserslautern, where he would spend one and a half seasons. He struggled through injury in his tenure at Kaiserslautern and returned to Artmedia Petržalka in the summer of 2007.[5]

He moved abroad again when Romanian club FC Timişoara acquired Borbély to help strengthen their defensive midfield in January 2008.[6] He would help Timișoara reach the play-off round of the 2009–10 UEFA Champions League where the club fell to German side VfB Stuttgart.

International career[edit]

Borbély has made 15 appearances for the Slovakia national football team,[7] including playing in the UEFA Euro 2008 qualification rounds.[8]
